FANS heading to Hampden tonight for Scotland’s crucial World Cup qualifier against Slovakia will be able to take advantage of free shuttle buses to and from the city centre.
Buses will depart from the city’s Buchanan Street Bus Station between 5:30pm and 6:30pm, dropping fans off on Cathcart Road, not far from the national stadium.
For the return journey, buses will depart from the same spot back to the Bus Station from 9:50pm onwards.
Fans are advised that spaces will be allocated on a first come, first served basis and a matchday ticket or confirmation email will be required to board.
No alcohol will be allowed on the buses, with stop and search in operation.
The match is a 7:45pm kick off.

ScotRail have said they will be adding carriages to services between Glasgow Central and Mount Florida to cope with the crowds travelling by train.
Services will be much busier than normal and fans should allow extra time for their journey.
Purchasing a ticket in advance is advisable to avoid having to queue for one.
A queuing system will be in place as usual after the final whistle on Bolton Drive next to Mount Florida station.
Alternative stations nearby include Cathcart and King’s Park but services there will still be busy.
Alcohol bans will be in place on all trains heading between Mount Florida and King’s Park and Glasgow Central.

ScotRail’s John McBrinn said: “This is a really big game for Scotland, and we wish the team the best of luck.
“Trains heading towards Glasgow and Mount Florida will be extremely busy, so customers should make sure they buy their tickets before they board.
“We will be doing everything we can to keep people moving hassle free, but customers should plan their journeys in advance at scotrail.co.uk or on the ScotRail app.
“The last trains of the night are likely to be very busy, so please aim to catch an earlier service where possible.
“Regular commuters who travel home from Glasgow on the line via Mount Florida should be aware that services will be much busier than normal with fans heading to the game.”
Police Scotland are reminding drivers of parking restrictions that will be in place during the match.
