Locke calls for unity from supporters
GARY LOCKE issued a passionate rallying cry to his fellow Hearts fans during a feisty annual general meeting at Tynecastle.
Hearts owner Ann Budge faced a flurry of questions on a swathe of topics in a packed Gorgie Suite yesterday morning, including Craig Levein, the club’s errant recruitment and their dismal campaign to date.
It prompted Locke – a shareholder and official club ambassador – to plead for unity and urge the fans to get behind a squad that is visibly woefully shorn of belief.
Ahead of today’s visit of Celtic, Locke said: “The biggest problem we have at the moment, as anyone involved in football will tell you, is confidence is shot when you have been on the run we have.
“I know it’s tough for us all at the minute but the only way we’ll get out of this mess is by every single person sticking together and that means getting behind the team that’s playing.”
