'Robbo' is the club's all-time leading scorer with 214 goals spanning 18 years across two spells, but his only winners' medal came as an unused substitute in the 1998 Scottish Cup final, his last match for the club.

It came after several near misses for both Hearts and their talismanic striker, including the agonising defeat at Dens Park in the final mach of the 1985-86 season which cost the club the Scottish Premier Division title.

"Rangers came in at £500,000, Hibs, Aberdeen and Dundee United came in at £600,000.

Hearts finished league runners-up on three occasions during Robertson's time at the club, and lost three finals, twice in the Scottish Cup and once in the League Cup.

It would take another 12 years for Robertson to get his winners' medal, and for the club to end a trophy drought stretching back to 1962.

Wallace [Mercer, the Hearts chairman] eventually went that wee bit extra to get me back and the stars aligned.” “They have unity, you can see that.

Hearts have nothing to fear going to Ibrox.”
