Police Scotland and SPFL in Talks Over Rearranging the League Cup Semi-Finals

Police Scotland and the head honchos at the SPFL are to hold talks this afternoon over potentially rearranging the Betfred Cup semi-finals.

Both last-four ties are scheduled to take place at Hampden on the same day, Sunday October 28, with Aberdeen and Rangers facing each other at lunchtime, before Celtic and Hearts square off at the same ground later in the evening with a 7.45pm kick-off.

The arrangements were made due to Celtic and Rangers both being involved in Europa League matches on the Thursday before, but now it seems there could be a reshuffle after all.

According to STV, officials will meet today to discuss potential alternatives, with security fears surrounding the current arrangements.

Aberdeen and Hearts both issued statements criticising the decision, stating that kick-off times would stop their supporters from attending the game, whilst Jambos boss Craig Levein also criticised the plans.

What do you think of the situation, and how would you try to keep everybody happy?
