Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes has suggested that Glasgow should be selected as the venue for their League Cup final clash against Inverness on 16th March.

Hampden Park will be unavailable for selection as it is being redeveloped for the 2014 Glasgow Commonwealth Games.

The final announcement on an alternative venue is expected to be made sometime this week and the choice is likely to be between Celtic Park and Ibrox Stadium, both being in Glasgow.

"It would probably have to be Glasgow to cope with the size of the crowd," McInnes was quoted as saying to the BBC.


With Inverness having a smaller number of travelling supporters, there is a chance that Easter Road Stadium, home to Hibernian, could also be looked upon as an alternative.

However, it could well lose out to Rangers' Ibrox, with a capacity of more than 50,000, or the well-known Celtic Park, which can hold an extra 10,000.

"I don't think anywhere else would be able to cope with it," McInnes added.

"Either Ibrox or Parkhead would do me fine. It really doesn't bother me.

"Whatever ground it is, hopefully it will be full of Aberdeen fans getting behind their team."
