Hitzfeld says he rejected Hearts

Former Bayern Munich manager Ottmar Hitzfeld claims he was offered the Hearts job - but has turned it down.

The 56-year-old German, who won the Champions League with Munich and Borussia Dortmund, said Hearts wanted him to replace George Burley.

Hitzfeld said: "I have had an offer from Heart of Midlothian but I told them I was not interested in the job."

Burley quit the post last month, reportedly after falling out with majority shareholder Vladimir Romanov.

Former Aston Villa manager John Gregory claims he has also been approached about the job.

"All I know is they asked for a CV and I'm sure they have done that with a number of people," said Gregory. "But I have had no contact with Hearts so far."
