The duo recently launched legal action against their relegation from the Premiership and Championship following the collapse of reconstruction talks in the aftermath of the resolution to conclude the season.

Their statement read: "Along with the other 40 SPFL clubs, Hearts and Partick Thistle have received a letter, signed by Neil Doncaster, that relates to the forthcoming court case.

"It is wrong and much of its content is misleading and the timing itself questionable, we are currently awaiting legal advice on what needs to happen next."
