"Hiya @JamTarts,” it read. “The @spfl sent us a present yesterday but we think it might be for you. Hoping to trade it for a red and yellow version, can you help?”

Both clubs were impacted by the decision to end the 2019/20 season early after the coronavirus pandemic struck.

Hearts, at the time of writing, have yet to reply to Thistle.
