Lafferty signed for Hearts this week after lengthy discussions with the Tynecastle club.

The striker said that he had joined the “biggest club in Edinburgh and the third-biggest club in Scotland” insisting that Tynecastle was his preferred option.

Hibs were rumoured to be in discussion with the Northern Irish striker.

Hearts fans were quick to react to Frampton’s tweet with one even stating that he would get the new Hearts top with his name on the back.
