Craig Levein is currently in his second spell as manager of the Heart of Midlothian Football Club.

As a player he made 401 competitive appearances for the club and was a key figure at the heart of the maroon defence during the 1980s. 

His transition into management began at Cowdenbeath before the Jambos came calling in 2000. Craig turned around the team's fortunes and successfully guided them into Europe in consecutive seasons - a feat that hadn't been achieved since the 1960s.

He left the club for Leicester City four years later before returning north to manage Dundee United in 2006. He was later appointed Scotland manager before a brief stint with Raith Rovers. In 2014, he accepted the role of Director of Football at Hearts. 

Following the departure of Head Coach Ian Cathro in the summer of 2017, Craig was appointed manager for a second time.
