Travel advice given to Celtic and Rangers fans ahead of cup final

ScotRail has issued travel advice to both Celtic and Rangers supporters ahead of the Scottish Cup final on Saturday. The Old Firm rivals will contest the final at Hampden Park, with the game kicking off at 3pm.

Travel plans for Celtic and Rangers fans summarised

Additional seats and trains have been put on for both sets of supporters travelling from Glasgow Central station. Queuing systems will be put in place at Glasgow Central before the match, and at Kings Park and Mount Florida after the game.

Celtic fans will queue via the main concourse at Glasgow Central for trains towards Kings Park. Meanwhile, Rangers fans will queue at the carriage driveway on Hope Street for trains towards Mount Florida. On the way back, Celtic supporters will travel via Kings Park, and Rangers fans will use Mount Florida station. Fans have therefore been advised to buy train tickets in advance.

ScotRail provide travel advice ahead of final

Phil Campbell, ScotRail customer operations director, said: “ScotRail is looking forward to helping fans travel to Hampden to cheer on their side in the men’s Scottish Cup final.

“We’ll be doing all we can to help you travel to the match as hassle-free as possible, which includes more seats and services to and from Mount Florida and Kings Park.

“Queuing systems will be in place before and after the matches, so please make sure you know where to go, and our staff will also be on hand to direct you.

“Buying your return tickets in advance through our mTicket system on the ScotRail app will reduce your need to queue, and help your journey run smoothly.”
