Aberdeen defender Angus MacDonald has called for a fair Scottish Cup semi-final ticket split - and believes they are “overdue” a win over Celtic.

The Dons secured a last-four Hampden meeting with Brendan Rodgers’ Hoops by blowing aside Kilmarnock last weekend. But the result was overshadowed with the shock departure of interim boss Neil Warnock minutes after the final whistle.

Cup allocations are often based on previous attendances, however MacDonald, 31, thinks both teams should receive an equal share of tickets regardless of how many are going through the turnstiles each week. 

He said: “I think we are well overdue beating Celtic. And if you are going to do it there is no better place than Hampden.

“It should be a 50-50 split and we will definitely sell out our part. I think it is only fair. However many they fit into their stadium compared to our stadium shouldn’t come into play.”

Aberdeen face Dundee at Dens Park tonight knowing anything but three points isn't enough as they look to make a late charge for the top six and most importantly avoid falling into the relegation play-off position.

MacDonald acknowledges the recent form hasn’t been up to standard and backed Aberdeen to go on a winning run. 

He stated: “The whole team knows what is at stake now. We knew that probably five or six weeks ago but results and performances haven’t been what they need to be. But it is never too late to turn it around.

“We are going to have to win most of our games to finish where we want to finish. We know that and Dundee is a massive game.

“I hear we have sold out our allocation so we are really going to need all the fans to get behind the team.”
