CELTIC and Hearts have been given an equal allocation of tickets for the Scottish Cup Final at Hampden on May 25.

The holders cemented their place in the silverware showdown with their 3-0 semi-final victory over Aberdeen on Sunday while the Edinburgh club overcame Championship outfit Inverness Caley Thistle by an identical scoreline 24 hours earlier.

Neil Lennon’s side will be aiming for an unprecedented treble treble while Craig Levein is hoping to halt the Hoops’ glory run and end the season on a high for the Tynecastle side.

Both sides will be handed 20,220 briefs for next month’s encounter.

The Scottish football bosses have frozen prices for the game for the third successive year and the Hearts tickets will go on sale in eight days’ time.

The Edinburgh outfit will take over the West Stand with the Parkhead men in their traditional spot at the opposite side. The North and South Stands will be split with debentures and hospitality making up the remainder of the attendance.
