McGlynn not worried by Hearts pay dispute

Heart of Midlothian manager John McGlynn is confident that they current pay situation enveloping the club will not distract the players from the job at hand.

The Edinburgh outfit have failed to pay six players and two staff members, including McGlynn, their most recent monthly wages.

The same situation occurred last season on a few occasions but McGlynn says is not an issue this time around with the Jambos' financial problems not severe enough to distract him from on-pitch exploits.

"It doesn't concern me, really," McGlynn said.

"Everybody's been paid in the past and I'm expecting to be paid in the near future.

"The club are waiting on money coming in. There's money due to come in which will certainly take that issue away.

"The money's coming in from a very credible source; it's not like we don't think the money's not going to come in.

"It's not like the last time when we were waiting on the money to come from Lithuania (where majority shareholder Vladimir Romanov is based).

"I'm not that worried. My wife works, so I'm all right."
