Use an embedded image as a link in a Google Spreadsheet in the published version

So! This is a very specific set of circumstances. I’m trying to use an image which I’ve embedded as a link. This works in the Edit interface, but when published, the image/cell does not act as a link. I’m currently using this formula:

=HYPERLINK("",
 IMAGE(""))

Is there any way I could get the image to work as a link even in the published version of the document?
