Hearts assistant manager Billy Brown is unconcerned with the club's failure to pay the squad's wages on time this month.
The Jambos' playing staff are also still waiting on bonuses from last season.
"Wages have been paid," said Brown. "They were a couple of days late, which happens with the structure of the club.
"There was nothing sinister in it and everyone was quite happy and satisfied. I think the players understand the situation, I don't think there was a great problem.
"I think it was blown out of proportion and I haven't heard anyone mention it at training this week. I know there has been issues throughout the summer but there is issues at every football club.
"But [manager] Jim Jefferies, [coach] Gary Locke and I are completely focused on what we are doing and it is a minor distraction as far we concerned."
