In a brief statement, Hearts said "The Board wishes it to be known that this was a very hard decision, reluctantly made, as every member of the Board recognises that Ian is an extremely talented young coach with a very bright future ahead of him".

"We thank Ian for all of his efforts and wish him well in the future", the statement added.

Hearts begin their Premiership campaign away to Celtic on Saturday.

Assistant boss Austin MacPhee and fellow coaches Jon Daly and Liam Fox have been put in temporary charge until a successor is found.

David Macdonald of Ladbrokes said: "This is a very open betting market, but ex Hearts defender Steven Pressley is our favourite at the moment from this long list of candidates".

Pressley player more than 270 times for Hearts after joining from Dundee United in 1998.

Houston won the Scottish Cup in his own right at United in 2010 and has impressed with the Bairns on a shoestring budget.

Hearts gambled by putting their faith in rookie Cathro, but the experiment failed.

Former Dundee manager Paul Hartley is among the favourites to take over the vacant head coach role at Hearts.

However, question marks continued to be raised about his man-management skills.

Hearts won just six of 26 matches under his charge last season and a Scottish Cup defeat by local rivals Hibernian piled on the pressure.
