Hibernian's Fenlon against Murrayfield switch for Scottish Cup final

Hibernian manager Pat Fenlon says this season's Scottish Cup final MUST be played at Glasgow's Hampden Park.

There have been calls to switch the all-Edinburgh game between Hibs and Heart of Midlothian to Murrayfield but Fenlon suggests that Scottish football's headquarters is the only place for a match of this magnitude.

"Hampden is the home of Scottish football and that is the right place for the game," Fenlon told the Daily Record.

"It's a fantastic occasion to look forward to. It'll be a great occasion for everyone, the city and both clubs.

"There is going to be so much hype around this game and it is important we concentrate on our job in the SPL.

"But, yes, an Edinburgh cup final is going to capture everyone's imagination. We are talking about two big clubs and we've heard enough about Hibs' recent history in the Scottish Cup, so it'll be some occasion for us.

"The Hibs fans would take the prospect of beating anyone in a final. But to have it against Hearts, it'd make it more special."
