The Scottish Premier League charge Hearts with "failing to behave with the utmost good faith".

The Scottish Premier League have charged Hearts with "failing to behave with the utmost good faith" following their recent failure to pay their players on time.

Hearts had paid their squad members late in October, November and December, while there is currently confusion as to whether they reached yesterday's deadline for January.

The SPL held a meeting this evening to determine what sanctions they would be handing to the Jumbos.

"The Scottish Premier League Board met this evening to consider the alleged failure by Heart of Midlothian FC to comply with the terms of the order made by the SPL on January 4 that the club pay the January wages due to the relevant players on the due date of January 16," the SPL said in a statement.

"As a result, Heart of Midlothian FC are being charged under SPL Rule A3.1 with failing to behave with the utmost good faith to the SPL."

No date has been given for the hearing.
