Dale Carrick: Hearts midfielder willing to pay cut

Administrators BDO have already made 14 staff redundant since last week, while some members of Hearts' squad have accepted a pay cut.

Carrick, who made 19 appearances last season after making his debut in August, is prepared to follow his team-mates' lead as he is determined to help the club out of their current predicament.

"It was devastating to find out the club was going into administration," said Carrick in the Daily Record. "I didn't believe it at first but then I saw it on TV and knew it was true.

"In the last couple of weeks I've toned down my spending and haven't bought some things I had planned to.

"It's best for some of the players to take a pay cut. I'll take one if it means fewer people will be made redundant. It has been so sad to see some people go.

"By the same token, it's great to see the fans coming out in their numbers to support the club and buy season tickets. We need to keep going now and sell the 3,000 the administrators have targeted.

"I haven't spoken to them yet about my own situation but I hope to do that on Thursday.

"I want to stay at the club for as long as I possible. I've been here since I was 11 so I want to give something back.

"I've had a wee taste of first-team action but I might get more regular starts next season with most of the senior players leaving."

worry about these types of conclusions on a teams brilliance when it was very clear that Argentina had 4 chances where they really should have scored and on chances alone then it would have been the more pragmatic Argentinians who would be the best in the world. I like the Germany team but this just shows that even with planning it relies on a great deal of luck and finding your opponents at just the right time.

Reward At Last For Years Of Careful Planning

e all know the British public don't have the patience to plan for 14 years. No chance. As soon as our young players don't win the world cup they get harrassed and abused to the point of mental breakdown. No, England likes to react to failure by sacking the manager and tearing up their best laid plans in favour of something shiny and new to keep the knee jerkers happy.
