JON DALY has launched an attack on the advisors of Jamie Walker after confirming that the want-away winger has been axed for Saturday’s Premiership opener at Celtic.
Hearts’ interim head coach has described the 24-year-old as ‘no use to anyone’ at the moment, acknowledging that he has been affected by the persistent interest from Rangers.
The Gers have seen three separate bids rejected for Walker, who is in the final year of his contract and has rejected an extension, with the most recent offer believed to be in the region of £600,000 with a staggered payment plan.
Confirming Walker’s absence this weekend, Daly said: “Jamie is a young lad, still just 24, and has a lot of football to play. I don’t think that the information he is getting from his agent and those types are helping.
