ST JOHNSTONE boss Steve Lomas will pay no attention to Hearts’ financial problems as he prepares for the visit of the Jambos.
Lomas believes all that turmoil will be “irrelevant” to the Tynecastle side’s players when the game begins.
“I don’t think it will have an effect on them, they have been through it all before,” said the Northern Irishman.
“Hearts players have played when they have had no wages, they have always been professional. The game is played on the pitch. Once you step over that white line everything is forgotten about. Everything else is irrelevant.
“You are there to do a job and they will want to prove a point, they will be wanting to win a game of football, so it is going to be tough. They are a side jam-packed with good players like Ryan McGowan and John Sutton so we will have to work hard and play well.”
