The club took to Twitter ahead of their crucial clash against Aberdeen in the Scottish Premiership today to announce the figures.

They said: “Over 25,000 tickets sold for next Sunday’s semi-final!”

Craig Levein‘s league leaders are set to face Brendan Rodgers‘ holders in the final four clash, while Aberdeen face Rangers at Hampden on the same day.

The announcement comes after the Dons were forced to hand back tickets for their clash with Steven Gerrard’s men after failing to sell the minimum of 10,000.

Both semi-finals had originally been scheduled to take place at Hampden on Saturday 27 and Sunday 28 of October.

But with both Celtic and Rangers in Europa League action in midweek, the games had to be moved.

SPFL chiefs opted for an ambitious effort to have both matches played in Glasgow on the same day.

But they were forced into a rethink after Police Scotland expressed concerns for public safety.
