Striker Clayton Donaldson has seemingly taken a pop at his former employers via a post on his Instagram account.

The Bradford City forward posted a picture of himself posing with a new set of boots, and within the caption revealed that he still has not been paid by Bolton Wanderers.

He wrote: “@bwbootsuk thanks again for the boots, so I guess I owe you two pairs cause I still haven’t been paid but thanks.”

The 35-year-old was at the club for one season after joining on a free from Sheffield United, but failed to have much impact at the club that eventually got relegated. He was in and out of Bolton side and finished his spell there with 31 appearances in the league, scoring just once.

Since leaving the club, he has joined his hometown club Bradford City in League Two as they look to bounce back to League One at the first time of asking.

Bolton fell into administration in May and will face a -12 point deduction from League One next season.

The club has still not been successfully taken over, however, Bolton released a statement at the beginning of the month confirming that a preferred bidder had been identified.

The club’s potential new owners have already started working on plans relating to season ticket and match day prices for next season, according to The Bolton News, as they work towards finalising the takeover deal.

It was confirmed last month that the club’s preferred bidder has also agreed to inject £1million into the club to fund the rebuilding of the playing squad ahead of the new season.

The Verdict

It is obviously a sorry state of affairs that employees still have not been fully paid by Bolton, and everyone in football is hoping that the problems can solved as quickly as possible.

The sooner the takeover happens the better, for everybody involved. People still need to be paid and Bolton need to get their house in order before they face a tough battle to stay in League One next year, starting 12 points behind.
