A MINUTE OF SHAME.

A MINUTE'S silence for former Hearts skipper George Miller descended into shameful chaos at Tynecastle.

Hibs fans started jeering as both sets of players stood silent before the televised Edinburgh derby.

Many of the away support tried to get the louts to quieten - which only served to crank up the volume.

And then Hearts fans joined in the effort to quell the noise as the 'tribute' became a mess.

The SPL will discuss the incident this week - and the impression it gives of Scottish football on live television.
