GlasgowWorld understands both clubs have been given an even split of tickets, with prices ranging from £10 to £40.

Meanwhile, former Rangers defender Alan Hutton has urged his former club to keep up their pursuit of the Scottish Premiership title after big Scottish Cup semi-final statement.

He admitted: “Rangers faced a defining week. Had they been beaten in both of those games, the season was done.

“But it is the opposite and it can kick Rangers on now. They know the league is going to be difficult but I’m sure they will keep going until the end.

“The semi-final was an absolutely massive result. The team went into the game under huge pressure after back-to-back defeats against Celtic and they needed a big performance.

“I think they got that, so I am looking forward to the Scottish Cup Final and you never know what can happen in the league.

James Tavernier and Steven Davis celebrate during Rangers’ Scottish Cup win over Celtic.

“After Sunday’s result, there are still five games left and it is up to them to go and put down a marker.

“Celtic have to go and get it over the line. If they do slip up, and remember it is games against the other top teams in the league so there are going to be no easy ones, Rangers are now going to be chasing them all of the way.

“All of Rangers players are judged on what you win. You have to win and get silverware.

“The semi-final was a big statement from them having gone from extra-time against Braga and into extra-time against Celtic. So it’s now up to them to chase Celtic down.”
