More than 30,000 Celtic fans are expected to make the trip to the Capital – the largest travelling support in Scotland since 40,000 Aberdeen fans watched the Dons lift the League Cup against Inverness Caledonian Thistle in 2014.

Hearts secured a 50/50 split of tickets for the cup showdown, and more than 30,000 Jambos are expected to boost the attendance to a 67,000-capacity sell-out.

With many fans receiving their pay packets in the coming days, Tynecastle chiefs are braced for further ticket sales later this week.
