Speaking recently, former Hearts club captain Berra expressed his surprise at being frozen out by incoming former Barnsley boss Daniel Stendel.

"It came out the blue," Berra said.

"I just got married on Friday and then on Sunday I'm getting told I'm not involved any more.

"Sometimes there's ways to go about it and sometimes with a bit of respect and a bit of morals, but it wasn't done like that."
