Hearts triumphed 1-0 over Inverness knowing their weekly wages had not been paid. The club issued a statement claiming it was down to "technical reasons", with their money promised by next Tuesday.
Afterwards, captain Christophe Berra claimed he was relaxed about the wages situation, saying: "We will definitely get them. We have been told it's a technical hitch and the money will be in next week.
"And the way I look at it, we won today so that's more money we are due with the win bonus.
"There is nothing to worry about. It's the first time that it's ever happened and hopefully it's the last.
"But we went out and put a performance in on the pitch and that's all that matters."
Jambos boss Csaba Laszlo claimed to know nothing of the problems around the Tynecastle wages, saying: "I must ask my wife, I don't know my accounts."
Reminded that it was the players that had not been paid, he replied: "I must ask the players, I don't know. I work only on football."
