The SPFL have told Superscoreboard they will meet with all FOUR semi-finalists in a bid to thrash out a fixture solution.
The SPFL is to meet with all four League Cup semi-finalists to try and arrange a solution to the fixture scheduling issue.

Both Celtic and The Rangers will be taking part in Thursday night fixtures just two days before one of the semi-finals are supposed to be played.
This means, as it stands, one of the Glasgow clubs will have to play on the Saturday just 48 hours removed from their European exploits.
With both games scheduled for Hampden that means both games cannot be played on the Sunday either.
The SPFL will now look for a solution consulting all teams involved.
Could Hampden be ditched for reverse fixtures at Ibrox and Parkhead or is Murrayfield an option for one of the semi-finals?
Aberdeen and Hearts will have a big say with their own fans in mind.
For the Glasgow clubs it’s all about getting ample time to prepare for a massive semi-final.
We await the outcome.
