Stephen Frail admits Hearts' situation looks "forlorn", but he won't walk away from his Tynecastle job.
He was then asked if he expected owner Vladimir Romanov to make changes to the coaching team.
"I don't know," he replied. "You'll need to ask other people that. If it's me that loses my job then so be it, because the biggest thing is the football club, and if the football club goes in the right direction [with] whoever is in charge then fine. But I won't be leaving it until I'm told, and I'll be working 24/7 to try and make sure we arrest this alarming start to the season."
