Valdas Ivanauskas has played down reports of a bust-up with Rudi Skacel.
Caretaker Hearts boss Valdas Ivanauskas has played down reports of a bust-up with Rudi Skacel.
Reports suggested Skacel stormed out of Tynecastle after being told he would not play against Dunfermline.
It has been suggested that Skacel was in talks over a possible move to Southampton, but Ivanauskas insists he has no problems with the Czech ace.
"We have a lot of players," Ivanauskas told the club's official website.
"Rudi needs to rest. We need Rudi to be fresh and Rudi was not in the squad, but it is no problem."
