Meanwhile, Hearts are facing picking up the tab for any unsold tickets in the semi-final.

The Tynecastle club fought hard to secure a 50-50 split of Hampden Park for the fixture.

As part of that deliberation, it's understood Hearts chiefs agreed to cover the cost of any unsold tickets from their 21,000 allocation.

As of Monday, April 8, it's believed 16,000 tickets had been shifted by the Premiership's third-placed side.

So, with less than a fortnight to go until the big day, 5,000 have still to be sold - and so, the club will need to fork out for the briefs that are unaccounted for.

It's not yet known if this situation will affect future ticket allocations for the Jambos at the national stadium.
