CELTIC and Aberdeen were reportedly locked in talks yesterday over the Hampden final ticket allocation.
After Derek McInnes made comment about the Dons possibly getting a 50/50 split having only taken 11,000 to the semi-final, it raised more than a few eyebrows.
However, according to Record Sport, the Pittodrie club have ‘softened’ their previous stance of demanding a 50/50 split after having to send som many briefs back to the SPFL when they wanted an equal share for the semi-final.
It’s now thought Celtic will get over 50% of the allocation but right now we’re not sure what the final percentage will land on.
The bhoys took over 30,000 fans to Hampden who will all be desperate for a ticket to see their team in the final.
Record Sports Reports.
Record Sports understands both clubs were locked in talks on Monday with the SPFL in a bid to thrash out allocations for the first major showpiece of the season.
And, although no agreement was reached, it’s believed Pittodrie chiefs have softened on their original stance for the last four clash with Rangers – when they demanded the national stadium be split down the middle only to sell less than 10,000 seats.
Celtic and Aberdeen are set to do battle again in a repeat of the League Cup Final two years ago.
Since playing in that final Celtic have reached five consecutive domestic finals and could make it five domestic cup titles in a row come December 2nd.
