Ankrah, a stench Hearts fan has been at the helm of affairs for not more than 15 months but has been at the receiving end of both unsatisfied fans and football pundits alike for what is termed as an “autocratic managing” of the club.

He said, “we were surprised when Ankrah served the board his resignation. He stated his reasons for leaving as personal meaniing he had some unsatisfied matter.”
“As a board, we respected his decision and iin so doing accepted his resignation,” he added.
The club later in the day released a press statement to officially confirm Gerald’s departure from Hearts.
