The club did not disclose the illness or when the 53-year-old was likely to return.

“Having received medical treatment, Craig is now recovering well in hospital,” the club said in a statement.

“No further comment will be made at this time and the club asks that Craig and his family’s privacy be respected, as we all wish him a speedy recovery.”

Levein watched Hearts beat Kilmarnock 1-0 in the league on Saturday to keep up their 100 percent start to the campaign after three matches.

He was appointed as Hearts manager on a three-year contract in August last year.
