It would make sense. Aberdeen and one of the Glasgow teams has to travel anyhow, so why make another support travel needlessly.

 

This is the SPFL/SFA though so I wouldn't be surprised if Aberdeen-Rangers is played there, needlessly inconveniencing 15,000 or so Hearts fans.

No chance. Would be seen as an unfair disadvantage to the best team in the world apparently.

Correct. Rangers v Aberdeen at Celtic Park. One 12 o'clock kick off the other 5pm.

Hampden regardless of day and time and easier for celtic to get to so why would they change it.

Knowing the way Rangers have been helped out at every opportunity, we’ll probably play Celtic at Ibrox with a hefty fee paid for the hosting of the game.

They'll just ask Celtic where they fancy playing, job done as far as the League is concerned.

So Aberdeen, Rangers and Hearts fans all on the trains going in all directions....... what could go wrong!

Reckon we’ll be pumped to Hampden however that would be a logistical nightmare with around 25k Rangers fans coming the other way at the same time.

It could be that rangers play the saturday as they are at home in Europe, and have Celtic on the Sunday as they are away in Germany midweek. That’s the only way to get around it without having a tie played at Ibrox, CP, or Murray field

You would think not. But they'll find a way. Huge psychological boost for Aberdeen if they can get Rangers out of Glasgow. Can't see the SPFL allowing that.

We are away to the Celtic the Saturday after. 

 

Switch that game to tynie the week before on a Sunday and we then play them the following week at Hampden in the cup

Logistically, that would be the easiest and least disruptive. For that reason, I fully expect the SPFL to do the opposite.

There are midweek SPL games (we play Hibs at Tynecastle) so that won't be happening unless they are canceled.

They’ll play the aberdeen, rangers tie at Murrayfield, saying that the decision was 100% based on the travelling Aberdeen fans.

Hibs refused Murrayfield in 2012 on the basis we 'knew' Murrayfield. Celtic can't really say that as they played 2 qualifying ties there in 2014.

Another option is to ask UEFA to change one of the Europa league ties to the Wednesday

Celtic have a bigger support than Rangers.  Hearts have a bigger support than Aberdeen.  The only sensible option would be Hearts v Celtic at Murrayfiled, which has a significantly higher capacity then Hampden.

 

It'll never happen though!

I think Celtic know Hampden a lot better than we know Murrayfield, so they have no argument on that basis.

Would it ? Rangers and Aberdeen fans all arriving/leaving in Edinburgh while Hearts fans are trying to get out of Edinburgh ? 3 sets of fans travelling. The right thing is for Rangers to be in Glasgow and Hearts to be in Edinburgh. Only 2 sets of fans travelling to different cities.

Yep.  The one thing that is sure that what is simplest for the supporters - particularly us and Andersen - will be the last thing on the minds of the SPFL suits and the TV people.

The easiest way would be us at Murrayfield and the Rangers tie at Hampden. 

 

Only really one set of fans travelling as Aberdeen would need to travel regardless. 

 

How they split the games time wise on the Sunday will be dictated by TV.

 

It's the SFA so it's the flip of a Green coin as to what they decide to do...
