ABERDEEN have asked the SPFL for a 50-50 split of Hampden for Betfred League Cup Fnal against Celtic at Hampden on November 27.

The Dons took just over 11,000 with a sparse crowd at the national stadium for Saturday’s 2-0 semi-final win over Championship side Morton.

The decision to play the game in Glasgow was criticised with the travelling Pittodrie fans who had to make the 150-mile trip for a 12.15pm kick off.img_2515.jpg

Aberdeen will make that point at a meeting today to discuss ticket allocation and prices for the showpiece against the Hoops next month.

The Dons face one of Glasgow’s Big Two for the first time since taking on both Celtic and Rangers in the League Cup and Scottish Cup respectively in 2000.
A ticket row erupted back then before the clash with the Ibrox club at Hampden when they were handed 7,000 more briefs.
Pittodrie chief executive Gordon Bennett launched a scathing attack on the SFA at the time.

It was argued the split handed Rangers an unfair advantage for a game they went on to win 4-0 and the Dons are desperate to avoid their fans being outnumbered again.

Derek McInnes’ team took around 40,000 to Celtic Park when they lifted the League Cup after a penalty shoot-out win over Inverness Caley Thistle and are confident there will be huge demand for next month’s Final.
