RANGERS will slap in a second offer for Kyle Lafferty after Hearts knocked back a £200,000 bid yesterday.

The Tynecastle outfit are not interested in doing business at that sort of level for their top scorer with 19 goals last season.

They could be tempted to part with the 30-year-old attacker for something in the region of £750,000 which might be too high for the Govan side.

Lafferty, who spent four seasons at Ibrox after joining from Burnley in 2008, signed for the Edinburgh men last year after his release from Championship Norwich City.

The Northern Ireland striker left Gers for Swiss team FC Sion after the club were demoted from the top tier of football following the club’s financial meltdown.

Lafferty, who has one year left on his Hearts deal, refused to transfer his contract to the club’s new company.

The beanpole frontman is also attracting attention from Azerberjani side Qarabag.
