Jefferies named SPL manager of month

Hearts manager Jim Jefferies

A great month for Jim Jefferies

Jim Jefferies completed his 60th birthday month by being named the top manager in the Scottish Premier League during November.

He received his Clydesdale Bank award after his Hearts side recorded four straight 2-0 victories.

Edinburgh rivals Hibernian, title hopefuls Celtic, plus St Johnstone and Hamilton, were beaten as Hearts ended the month with a 100% record.

Those results lifted Hearts into third spot in the SPL.

The Tynecastle boss was meant to have been presented with his award last week, but this was postponed due to the severe weather.

Jefferies, who turned 60 on 22 November, is in his second spell in charge of the club for whom he also served as defender.

He has also managed Gala Fairydean, Berwick Rangers, Falkirk, Bradford City and Kilmarnock before returning to Tynecastle in January.
