Hearts players are showing no affects from the wage problems suffered this week says boss Csaba Laszlo.

Hearts employees were paid their monthly wages on Friday morning, with players also receiving their delayed weekly income.

With the club already massively in debt - £36.25million from their last set of audited accounts - fears grew for the club's position especially with some of the world's leading banking institutions enduring problems.

The Hungarian said: "I don't think this is a big problem, today everybody is paid.

"I don't have an influence over this (wages), I have influence over my team and to be positive.

"My job is not to think about this and discuss it. Believe me, if you were in my position you would think the same.

"Most important at the moment is what happens against Dundee United. You must have priorities. What is the most priority for a football coach? The results, his team. This is my priority.

"Always in your life, you have problems, but you must have solutions. For me, the solution is if it's possible to take three points from Dundee United.

"You always have difficult times but you must be positive."
