An initial allocation of more than 20,000 tickets has been given to Aberdeen FC for next month's Scottish Cup semi-final against St Johnstone.

They will go on sale via the club's website to season ticket holders and some shareholders from this Thursday at noon.

The tickets will then be available from the Pittodrie ticket office from next Monday.

Their Perth opponents have been given more than 5,000.

The match at Ibrox on 13 April will be screened live by the BBC.

Ticket demand is set to be high on the back of Aberdeen's win in the Scottish League Cup final, as the club chases a cup double.

Tens of thousands of fans watched the trophy being paraded through the city centre on Sunday.
