Hearts players threaten to leave if they don’t get paid

HEARTS players have threatened to tear up their contracts and leave the club if the ongoing issue of unpaid wages has not been resolved by the middle of next month.

They have given a deadline of 14 January, claiming that if the long-running issue is not sorted out by that date, they will walk away from the Tynecastle side.

The players’ wages for October arrived 19 days late, and since then they have received just £1,000 of their November sum.

With the December due date just five days away, club insiders have admitted they are struggling to accrue the funds to make the payment.

“We are almost at the stage that we would probably prefer not to get that wage on time, because then we could walk away on January 14, and find ourselves new clubs and Hearts wouldn’t get a penny,” said one player, who did not want to be named.
