Hearts have slammed fringe players who won’t turn in their contracts to ease the club’s financial position. In a statement the club said that they preferred to take the club’s money ‘while offering very little or nothing in return.’

Hearts have slammed fringe players who won’t turn in their contracts to ease the club’s financial position. In a statement the club said that they preferred to take the club’s money ‘while offering very little or nothing in return.’

Hearts claimed that all players would be paid by the end of the month and that the club would remain in the top three clubs in the Scottish Premier League in terms of playing budget next year.   The club rejected suggestions they are financially unstable.   The club is controlled by Ukio Banko Investicine Grupe (UBIG) not Ukio Bankas.   UBIG continue to support the club, albeit at a reduced level.

The club admits that the economic environment has exerted downward pressure on income streams from commercial operations and matchday ticket revenues.

  1. Should there be a transfer embargo?

    It’s very interesting to note that Hearts could never-the-less afford to offer a contract to former Scotland international Craig Beattie. If they are not paying their players on time – which has happened three times already this season – I feel there should be a transfer embargo forced upon the club. If this is not currently in SPL rules then it ought to be. Another question to raise is whether Rangers should give back Lee Wallace who was signed for £2 last year. £800,000 of the transfer fee remains unpaid? Perhaps we should be looking at a direct exchange of funds for transfers in the future which would possibly bring inflated fees down?
