Celtic have sold out their entire allocation for this weekend’s Betfred Cup semi-final clash with Hearts at BT Murrayfield, while the Jambos have so far shifted 27,000 tickets – with fans expected to snap up even more briefs.

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.

A statement from Celtic read: “Following the phenomenal demand from season ticket holders, Celtic’s full allocation is now sold out for this weekend’s Betfred League Cup semi-final.”
