HEARTS staff have been told they will not receive the wages they lost when the club fell into administration.

It is believed staff thought they would be paid backdated salaries by administrators BDO, who will pay players what they are due.

But workers’ hopes of receiving around £50,000 look set to be shattered as they are viewed as creditors and not part of the club’s “football debt”, BDO have declined to comment.
