Hearts skipper relaxed over wages

Hearts captain Christophe Berra
Berra is not phased by the pay delay at Hearts

Hearts captain Christophe Berra is looking forward to a bumper pay packet following the club's failure to release the players' wages on time.

"We will definitely get them," Berra said after the 1-0 win over Inverness. "We've been told it's a technical hitch and the money will be in next week.

"The way I look at it, we won so that's more money we're due with the bonus.

"There is nothing to worry about. It's the first time that it's ever happened and hopefully it's the last."

Hearts manager Csaba Laszlo claimed to know nothing of the problems around the Tynecastle wages, saying: "I must ask my wife, I don't know my accounts."

Reminded that it was the players that had not been paid, he replied: "I must ask the players, I don't know. I work only on football."

Hearts issued a brief statement, saying the players would be paid at the beginning of next week.
