CELTIC have reportedly sent in a request to the SPFL calling for a draw to be made to determine who would play at Hampden and Murrayfield.
It came to light earlier today that the SPFL would re-think their plans to play at the same venue on the same day after Police Scotland changed their mind on the issue.
This has left an almighty mess for the SPFL who seem to be running our game like a Monty Python’s sketch.
Assuming the SPFL can secure Murrayfield for the day the noise coming from Doncaster’s office was Celtic and Hearts would likely be the ones to shift to Edinburgh with no real reason why.
BBC’s Chris McLaughlin has told his followers the club have now wrote to the SPFL for clarification and to suggest the unusual step of drawing who plays where on the day.
#Celtic want a draw to determine which Betfred Cup semi takes place at Murrayfield if SPFL scrap plans to have both matches played at Hampden on the same day. The cup holders have written to league bosses tonight looking for clarification.

This all came about after both Glasgow clubs made the final four of the competition. With both having Europa League games on the Thursday it wasn’t fair on either to play on the Saturday.
This have birth to the massive own goal by SPFL officials who declared they could feasibly play both games at Hampden in the same day.
So much for that Neil! Always look on the bright side of life eh.
