Gudjon tipped for Hearts job

Former Stoke manager, Gudjon Thordarson is being tipped as the next manager of the Scottish club, Hearts.

The Tynecastle club have had five managers in three years whilst under the stewardship of Russian chairman, Vladimir Romanov and any new manager will need more than a thick skin if he is to survive long enough to make any difference.

Gudjon was sacked by Stoke's then Icelandic owners in 2002 just days after achieving promotion to the old League Division one via a play-off victory at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff. Many fans were upset to see him go and it prompted some bizarre demonstrations outside the Brit.

Since then he has had few successes, having brief stints at Notts County, Icelandic club Keflavik, Barnsley and Start in Norway before rejoining Akranes last year where he had spent his entire playing career.

Certainly Thordarson seems to have lost none of the temperament that endeared him to the chairmen of all his former clubs, but this may stand him in good stead north of the border. Confirming to the Icelandic media that he had been approached for the role, he told them: 'I told them I'd consider the job on the right terms - I'm getting too old for this kind of crap.'
