IT was no surprise following his club's lastgasp Scottish Cup defeat to Dunfermline that Hearts chief Vladimir Romanov came under fire from angry fans.

The holders crashed out courtesy of Scott Wilson's late goal and that sparked a furious response from bloodthirsty Jambos supporters.

Mark Southern, South Queensferry, said: "Enough is enough because Mr Romanov is a paranoid wreck and the only way we can send a message to him is by not turning up for games at Tynecastle in the future.

"It's bad enough watching Hibs heading to two finals but watching our beloved team die is too much to take. Romanov and Ivanauskas should go."

John Morrison, Mount Vernon, Glasgow, said: "Mr Romanov is a joke. He has sold his best players and Craig Gordon will go next.

"Everything has been sold by the asset stripper except the ground but, mark my words, Tynecastle will be next."

Hibs supporters are far from depressed, having seen their kids book a place in the final of the CIS Cup and the last eight of the Scottish Cup.

Jim McGarvey, Leith, said: "Well done to John Collins and his boys. They should enjoy these times because I have watched some great Hibs teams down the years win nothing. But the double is on the way to Easter Road."

Motherwell supporters are also on a high, having brushed past Morton on their way to the next round of the Cup.

Bill McDonald, Motherwell, said: "That was a great result and performance from my boys and I must also thank Scott McDonald for putting the disappointment of not going to Rangers behind him."

But Falkirk fans were not willing to forgive their players after being dumped out of the competition by St Johnstone.

Mark McAfferty, Stirling, said: "I heard John Hughes call his players spineless and gutless but that really doesn't come close to how I feel about them.

"They'll turn up for training today as if nothing's happened but people like me will be hurting until our next win."

Rangers had the weekend off but Tony O'Donnell, Clarkston, Glasgow, could not help having a pop at their supporters. He said: "I read that their fans don't know whether to boo Neil Lennon or Paul Hartley at the next Old Firm match but that's just sad.

"They should be cheering their own players after the success they've had this season."

Paddy Donnelly, Glasgow, jumped to the defence of the Hoops fans amid fears they would turn on Shaun Maloney following his move to Aston Villa.

He said: "I have heard people say that Shaun Maloney will get a bad reception from the Celtic supporters if ever he returns to the club.

"But he has left and we'll all just get on with it. The fans even got behind Liam Miller and Kenny Dalglish after they left the club."

lan McGaw, Grangemouth, had some advice for the Italian police following the trouble in Serie A.

He said: "It's time we sent over the Scottish police to sort the problem out over there. The Italian police need our help in combating this problem.

"I went to the Hampden final when the horse came on many years ago but we have conquered the problem and we should give the Italians the benefit of our knowledge."

Scotland were hammered 42-20 by England at rugby on Saturday and Allan Thomas, Galashiels, felt returning Twickenham hero Jonny Wilkinson made all the difference.

He said: "I am disappointed we got beaten but it was largely down to Jonny Wilkinson.

"The English were more up for it than the Scots after their recent problems but Wilkinson truly is a world-class performer."
