Ticket boost for Inverness

Inverness have been handed the united support they asked for at their League Cup final against Aberdeen.

The Scottish Professional Football League has released ticket details for the Celtic Park clash, which give Caley Thistle fans a full section behind one of the goals.

Inverness supporters will be housed in the lower tier of the Lisbon Lions stand, with further tickets in the upper tier available if they sell out their initial block.

Aberdeen fans, who have an initial allocation in excess of 30,000 tickets, will be housed in the main stand, north stand and Jock Stein stand.

Inverness had branded the original plan "unacceptable" after their support was due to be split across the main stand and Lisbon Lions stand with Dons fans beside them in each stand.

Aberdeen had told their supporters about that provisional plan but the SPFL did not release the finalised seating allocation until Wednesday afternoon.

Tickets for the March 16 encounter cost 25 for adults and 10 for under-16s.
