The 35-year-old, who was released by Bolton at the end of the 2017/18 campaign, also claimed other ex-players were awaiting payment.

In the Twitter posts, Henry further claimed chairman Ken Anderson had assured him of payment on Thursday (6) but has not received any money yet.

Henry tweeted: "A number of ex-players, including myself, are still awaiting payments from the club. Ken Anderson assured me that we would be paid on the 6th.. Still nothing! We all did our jobs last season. If you could please do yours, we’d really appreciate it. Many thanks. Karl."

He continued: "The 6th is not the first date we’ve been given, others have been and gone. Also, this is not the first time that players/ex-players have not been paid. If my tweet prompts him to pay everybody at some point today, great!

"This regularly happened to others during my time at Bolton. We (the players) put pressure on the chairman internally and made him pay them. All kept in-house. Now we’re not there, he predictably does the same to us. #NoIntegrity #NoPrinciples #StillNoPayment #InNoRushHeSays"

Henry played for Wolves between 2006 and 2013 and made more than 250 appearances before joining Queens Park Rangers and then Bolton.
