Former Celtic hero Maloney in Bahrain talks about unpaid wages Wigan

The Latex confirmed last week that there would be a delay in paying staff and players for the fourth time in nine months.

Maloney, who took over as Wigan manager at the end of January after a stint with Hibernian, is heading to Bahrain for talks with club chief executive Malachy Branigan on the matter.

Asked on Saturday if his players were paid, Maloney answered, I reported the athlete: “No, not yet. That’s not the case unfortunately.”

Ongoing liquidity issues saw Wigan awarded a suspended three-point deduction in the same month that Maloney took over for delays in the issuance of wages in three separate months in 2022.

With a penalty from the English Football League hanging over the club’s helm, Maloney said: “I think we’ll have to wait and see but it was suspended last time and now it’s happened again so I think we have to expect there will be something like that in the EFL.”

“I don’t know what it’s going to be like but we have to be realistic. If I sit here and say something else it won’t be true.

“I think the points deduction will be the EFL that will decide. We knew what the penalty would be: suspended and if it happens again… so we know what to expect and we have to leave that with the EFL.

“The situation has now arisen and that means the FA now has to look at it, and I understand that.”

Wigan currently support the Championship table with 34 points from 38 matches. They are just one point behind second-placed Huddersfield Town and five behind Cardiff City, who hold a safe first place in the table.

The Latics won’t return to action until April due to the international break, at which point Maloney will be hoping for more information on the wage issue.

He added: “I expect to get some clarity really. I think it’s essential that we get clarity on where the club is in the short term.

“I think we need to be clear about what happened and why. And then we also have to have exactly the same for the long-term vision for the club, I think. But the priority has to be the players’ answers need to be pushed and we need to be clear about that.

“I’m not disappointed because I don’t have clarity, I’m just frustrated or frustrated with the players. I think they’re clearly the ones who suffer the most. So my feelings are really for them.”
