Kelty Hearts put on FREE buses for historic Scottish Cup tie as Raith Rovers ‘subsidise’ Celtic travel

Kelty Hearts will lay on free supporter buses for their historic Scottish Cup last-16 tie against St Mirren.

The Fifers dumped holders St Johnstone out of the competition on Saturday, with a Kallum Higginbotham strike sealing a famous 1-0 triumph.

And, as a ‘thanks’ to the punters who packed New Central Park, travelling costs for the trip to Paisley will be covered for fans who book their place.

The away section at The SMiSA Stadium holds 1,600 and, while cognisant of the challenge, Courier Sport understands that Kelty Hearts chiefs are hopeful they could come close to filling that stand.

The League 2 leaders are participating in this stage of the tournament for the first time.

The exact date and time for the clash is still to be confirmed, with broadcasters yet to reveal their live TV picks.

Rovers return

Meanwhile, Raith Rovers will heavily subsidise the cost of travel for away fans heading to their away tie against Celtic.

The Kirkcaldy club are expecting a bumper take-up of their allocation — which is yet to be confirmed — after being drawn to face the Hoops for a second time this season.

Away fans were locked out of the Premier Sports Cup fixture between the sides in September, with Celtic running out 3-0 winners.

While Rovers are unlikely to be able to offer free travel due to the sheer demand anticipated, they intend to cover a large chunk of the costs.

Priority access will be given to Raith season ticket holders ‘on a first come, first served basis’.

Details will be confirmed when the date and time of the match is announced.
