Bolton Wanderers manager Neil Lennon helps pay staff at stricken club

Neil Lennon reveals that some of Bolton Wanderers' senior staff are using their own money to pay administrative staff at the stricken Championship club.

Bolton Wanderers boss Neil Lennon has revealed that coaches are using their own money to help pay administrative staff at the financially-troubled Championship club.

Around 300 staff at the Lancashire club have not been paid on time this month and a failure to sell players or car park land has added to the funding issues.

Lennon said that some of the more senior staff had had a "whip round" to help some people who are struggling.

"I've got staff - part of my football staff and backroom staff - that are struggling to make ends meet at the minute," PA quotes Lennon as saying.

"That's not a great scenario. Some of us have had a whip round for a few of them just to keep them on board.

"Hopefully when the car park sale goes through then we can get a takeover done eventually and things can move on from here."

On Monday, Bolton were given until February 22 to resolve issues that led to a winding-up petition.
