Up until now, supporters have been banned from smoking inside the stadium, but the new plans will see fans allowed out to smoke at half-time, before being allowed to re-enter the stadium in a controlled fashion.

If the trial is successful in eradicating smoking within the stadium, the scheme could be introduced in the other three stands at Easter Road.
