So it's going to happen next season, even better in my opinion as we can rub their noses in it.
Hearts will not be relegated from the Scottish Premier League despite its parent company declaring its insolvency.
The SPL board met on Monday to consider whether UBIG's financial status constituted an "insolvency event" under SPL rules on "group undertakings" relating to clubs.
Hearts feared an 18 point deduction and relegation to the First Division as a result of last Thursday's announcement but the league has ruled that there is insufficient information to suggest the club should be punished.
A statement from the league's board read: "The SPL board met today to consider reports from Lithuania in respect of UBIG.
"The board are not satisfied, on the basis of information currently available to it, that an Insolvency Event (a defined by SPL rules) occurred in repsect of UBIG during season 2012/13."
