Oldham chairman Simon Corney has hit back at "scare-mongering" over the club's finances following a delay in players and staff being paid.

Wages scheduled to be paid last Friday did not materialise and the club have since promised to pay up by the end of this month.

It is the second successive occasion in which pay packets have been delayed, raising further concerns over the club's financial state, butt Corney told the Oldham Chronicle: "We are technically within our rights to wait until the end of the month to pay.


"The fact that we normally do so by the last Friday in the month is something we have chosen to do in the past.

"But we will get the wages paid by the end of the month and it really isn't a problem.

"I think people are scare-mongering and trying to cause problems, but we are absolutely fine."
