Hearts have received less than half the share of tickets for their impending semi-final clash

Hearts have reached the semi-final of the Viaplay Cup following a 2-1 win over Kilmarnock in September. Jorge Grant opened up the scoring for the Jambos before the Killies retaliated with an equaliser in the 68th minute.

However, 20-year-old Alex Lowry was able to find the winner and scored in the 90+2nd minute to send his side through to the final four of the competition.

They will now take on Rangers following the Gers 4-0 win over Livingston. The Ibrox side, however, are set to have the benefit of a far bigger fanbase when the two sides descend on Mount Florida following the SPFL’s decision to grant only 18,000 tickets to the Jambos in a stadium that can seat 52,000.

Speaking to the press regarding the decision, Hearts boss Steven Naismith said: “I just find it hard that it wouldn’t be your starting point.

“I think clubs grow, clubs get more backing, clubs get engaged with their fanbase to increase it. Hearts have been a club that have shown that. We could easily cover 50/50 in a big semi-final game like that. It is disappointing but we accept it and we’ll deal with it.”

Hearts and Rangers are yet to face each other this 2023/24 season, last coming to blows in May. The Jambos were able to draw 2-2 at Ibrox with goals at either end of the game but will be hoping to reach their first Viaplay Cup final since losing to St Mirren in 2012/13.
