Hearts warned fans: “Demand for the tickets is likely to be extremely high, supporters are advised to secure their tickets sooner rather than later to avoid missing out.”

Meanwhile, the Jambos are approaching a sell-out for Thursday evening’s home leg against Liverpool, with fewer than 100 tickets left for the showdown.

The News told earlier this week how Liverpool fans had vowed to “paint the town red” when they arrive in the Capital.

Les Wright, away fans’ representative on the Liverpool FC Supporters’ Committee, said: “Edinburgh will be mobbed before the game. A lot of Liverpool fans will pay whatever it takes to get to the match.”
