Tens of thousands of football fans have snapped up tickets to see Liverpool in action in Edinburgh.
The European champions face Napoli in a pre-season friendly at the home of Scottish Rugby, which has now sold out.

Anfield was unavailable for use for the match, with another alternative being Tottenham Hotspur’s new stadium.
But the choice was made to take the glamour fixture to the Scottish capital.
Murrayfield has played host to eight football matches over the last 15 years, including hosting European ties for Celtic, one of last season’s Betfred Cup semi-finals and friendlies featuring Barcelona.
But this will be the first time Liverpool will play at the 67,000-seater stadium, and their first trip to Edinburgh since a 2012 Europa League win over Hearts at Tynecastle.
Fans still hoping to secure a ticket for the game have been advised that, although it is a sell-out, it’s worth checking the Ticketmaster website between now and the game as any returns received will be immediately made available for sale.
