Michael Stewart has blasted both Hearts and Hibs for their slow League Cup ticket sales following the Edinburgh pair’s respective poor starts to the season.
After the weekend’s results they both sit just a point off the bottom. If results go against them on Wednesday, they could both be in the bottom two.
Now the former Jambo and current pundit has criticised the clubs, saying that the lack of ticket sales for this weekend’s cup ties are ‘a sad indictment’ of where the clubs are just now.
He wrote in his Scottish Sun column: “What a sad indictment of the way things are at two of our biggest clubs at the moment. And the worst thing about it for me is it’s actually not that surprising.
“You just get the sense that Hibs and Hearts fans are totally and utterly scunnered with their sides right now. There’s not even a sense of anger, more an acceptance things will get worse before they get better.”
Hearts and Hibs will be outnumbered at Hampden
This latest critique of Hearts and Hibs stems from the fact that both clubs have had their allocations slashed for weekend League Cup semi-final meetings with Celtic and Rangers.
With the duo struggling in the league now, perhaps that is a factor in slow ticket sales. That being said, surely supporters can put that to one side to support their club in a semi-final?
Alas it won’t be the case which means that Hibs and Hearts fans will be outnumbered when they rock up at Hampden over the weekend.
If their teams do the talking out on the pitch, those who do venture to Hampden from the capital won’t be caring one bit.
