Heart of Midlothian players are experiencing similar problems to last season as they seek the payment of their monthly wages.
A group of the Edinburgh club’s highest paid players are yet to receive their cash which was due on Monday which sees the Jambos revisiting the issues that encircled them during the 2011/12 Scottish season.
However, a statement on the club’s official website has made it clear that those players who missed out on their wages will be paid as soon as possible with a Hearts spokesman offering an apology to the senior stars who have not yet received their dues.
"Hearts today confirmed that the vast majority of its 45-man squad had been paid their salaries in full,” read the statement.
"A small number of senior players were unpaid but will be paid shortly. The club has informed the affected players."
The spokesman added: "We have apologised to the small number of players affected by this short-term delay to their wage payments and we are grateful for their understanding on the matter.
"We expect the matter to be resolved once we receive a guaranteed income expected in the very near future."
