The Tynecastle outfit rejected a £200,000 Gers bid for the Northern Ireland international last month, as the Light Blues seek to return the 30-year-old to Ibrox for a second spell, having played there between 2008 and 2012.

Lafferty showed his worth to the Jambos by scoring the only goal of a fierce Ladbrokes Premiership game against Celtic at Tynecastle.
