We have deferred wages for the good of the fans - Hearts' McGowan

Heart of Midlothian youngster Dylan McGowan says the players have deferred their wage payments for November for the good of the fans.

The Edinburgh club are trying to fix a tax bill of £450,000 in order to stay alive and 22-year old Australian defender McGowan has revealed that the entire playing group have decided to forego their salaries this month so the supporters can breathe easy.

"We're all in different situations, a lot of the guys have mortgages and kids," he told STV.

"I'm quite lucky in that I'm young and have nothing to spend my money on, really, so it was an easy decision for me.

"When you see the fans rally around like they have done I think it's the least we could have done and none of the boys had any issues with doing it.

"People are spending their hard-earned money on shares and tickets for the game and if we can defer our wages for a bit to keep this club alive then we will do."
