Hearts players

Hearts players have received their February salaries on time.

Last month, the Scottish Premier League decided to take no action against the Edinburgh club over late wage payments.

Earlier this week, the Edinburgh club paid the Edinburgh club announced they have paid in full an outstanding tax bill that threatened their existence.

A winding-up petition was presented to the Court of Session by the Advocate General for Scotland on 27 January.

And it was published on 7 February, with HMRC giving the Edinburgh club eight days to pay.

Last year, Hearts were forced to pay a bill in the region of £500,000 to defeat a similar order, while others were served in 2009 and 2010.
