“We'll be running some extra services to/from Mount Florida, as well as adding more carriages on trains serving Mount Florida and Kings Park.

Supporters heading to the game should allow extra time for travel as services will be busy. Buying return tickets to Mount Florida in advance will help avoid additional queuing on the day.

“Visiting Ukraine fans taking the train should use services to/from Mount Florida.

"We'd also like to remind regular customers that trains from Glasgow Central to Mount Florida and Kings Park will be much busier than normal prior to the game.
