PFA delighted with SPL stance on Romanov's unpaid Hearts wages

Professional Footballers' Association (PFA) Scotland are happy with the fact that the Scottish Premier League will assist Heart of Midlothian in the New Year.

Players of the Edinburgh club have gone unpaid for October, November and December as owner Vladimir Romanov experiences financial woe and it has gotten to the stage where the SPL will set up a sub-committee to round up evidence ahead of a potential crunch meeting on January 4.

The news has delighted PFA Scotland boss Fraser Wishart who hopes the turmoil can be solved as soon as possible after Hearts players lodged a complaint regarding their unpaid wages .

"Our members are delighted that the SPL will adjudicate early in 2012," Wishart said.

"It's clear that the SPL Board agrees that, unlike other contractual issues, this is not a matter that can take time as our members continue to play without a December salary.

"It's our hope the directors of Hearts are able to source funding to pay the wages immediately and the complaint can be withdrawn."
