Fulham's Gordon offer 'very small' - Ivanauskas

Hearts manager Valdas Ivanauskas insists £2.5million should not be enough to prise Craig Gordon away from his club.

Fulham are reported to have made an offer in that region for the Scotland goalkeeper, but Ivanauskas believes the Tynecastle board should scoff at such bids.

'They have interest in Craig, but financial details are not my job. For me, that is a very small price,' Ivanauskas told the Edinburgh Evening News.

The Hearts boss admits the current campaign has been a challenge for everyone at the club.

The departure of Steven Pressley last month appeared to bring a turbulent spell to a climax, after the former captain had criticised the way the club was being run.

Hearts have not been able to match last season's form; however, they are just five points behind second-placed Rangers and will expect maximum points from tomorrow's Bank of Scotland Premier League match against Falkirk.

'It's been a difficult season - a very, very difficult season,' Ivanauskas told Hearts World.

'I think it's a learning season for everybody, me also. Our target is second place and a Champions League place.'

Hearts also remain in the Tennent's Scottish Cup and go to Rangers' third-round conquerors Dunfermline on February 3, looking to reach the last eight and move closer to defending their crown.

Ivanauskas describes that as 'a danger game', but his immediate focus is on tomorrow's match.

Striker Edgaras Jankauskas misses out with a hamstring injury, and Jamie Mole could be involved - before leaving the club on loan next week, with Motherwell and Kilmarnock both keen on the 18-year-old.

Falkirk have so far managed to keep striker Alan Gow at the club this month, despite interest from Rangers.

They would ideally keep Gow until the summer - when his contract expires - but the 24-year-old remains a target for Walter Smith. Falkirk manager Hughes has insisted only 'real money' could take him away before the end of the month.

Falkirk have already turned down offers of £100,000 from Wolves and Rangers - and are believed to want £500,000.

The Bairns have returned from a warm-weather training stint in Portugal, where they lost a friendly 3-0 to Borussia Monchengladbach.

Hughes is hoping the club are involved in European matches of the competitive variety in future.

His ambitious plans may be some way from fruition, with Falkirk's first aim this season to secure a top-six finish rather than to qualify for the UEFA Cup.

But Hughes relished the opportunity to see his side in action against the star-studded German side.

'Borussia are a well-known Bundesliga side, and games like these give us a chance to see how far we've come,' he told the Falkirk Herald.

'It gives us a test of European football - something we are looking at over the next few seasons.'
