Aberdeen are reportedly set to seek an even split of the ticket allocation for the Viaplay Cup final against Rangers.

Barry Robson's side will meet the Ibrox club at Hampden on Sunday, December 17 to fight it out for the first silverware of the season.

The Dons secured their place in the showpiece event with a victory over Hibernian on Saturday evening. A solitary Bojan Miovski goal was enough to seal the win, with Aberdeen forced to play the final 15 minutes, plus stoppage time, with ten men after Jack MacKenzie was sent off.

Philippe Clement's side joined them in the League Cup final as they coasted past Hearts yesterday. A James Tavernier double and a Scott Wright strike was more than enough for the Light Blues, as Lawrence Shankland scored a late consolation for the Edinburgh outfit.

A meeting between the clubs and the SPFL is set to take place soon ahead of the final. 

And the Daily Record reports that the Pittodrie hierarchy will push for a 50-50 split of tickets.

A 40,000-strong Dons support packed out Celtic Park in 2014 as Derek McInnes led Aberdeen to League Cup glory against Inverness. It's believed Dave Cormack and co. are confident there will be another huge demand for next month's encounter.

The report states that while Aberdeen wants an even split, it's said that the club's board will ask for the allocation to be split in such a way that if they are unable to sell out a 20,000 allocation any remaining tickets could be handed back to ensure that Hampden Park is sold out for the occasion.

Meanwhile, even when they are second best. Even when they are down to 10 men. As long as Aberdeen have Bojan Miovski, they have a puncher’s chance.

That is exactly the scenario that unfolded at Hampden on Saturday, as a classic counter from the Dons late on caught Hibernian cold, and the striker showed ice in his veins as he finished just about the first thing resembling a chance that came his way all afternoon.
