Jackson On A Roll
Sometime you need a fresh pair of eyes to see where problems lie and the sharpest eyes these days appear to belong to Bryan Jackson.
Administrator Bryan Jackson was praised yesterday for his work in helping save Dunfermline from going bust earlier this year. With his work with Motherwell on the BDO employees CV already, Hearts manager Gary Locke hopes Jackson can make it a hat-trick and lead the Edinburgh club to safety. The Pars faced closure over debts of around £10m but Jackson managed to negotiate a deal with former owner and main creditor Gavin Masterton which allowed fans' group Pars United to gain control. Jackson and his colleagues Trevor Birch and James Stephen are now focusing all their efforts on rescuing the Tynecastle side from their own administration crisis and Locke hopes the football finance experts can save Hearts.He said: "I know I am speaking on behalf of everyone at Hearts when I say we're delighted to see Dunfermline come out of administration. It's great that the fans have taken over and I'm delighted for the gaffer (former Hearts manager Jim Jefferies, now in charge at Dunfermline) too. Now they can move forward as a football club. Bryan has been looking after them as well as us and we are in good hands with both he and Trevor. Hopefully, with a bit of luck we can get the same result as Dunfermline before January."
