Aberdeen's McInnes wants League Cup final in Glasgow

Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes has called on the Scottish Professional Football League to hold the League Cup final in Glasgow.

The usual venue at Scottish football's headquarters at Hampden Park is not an option as the stadium is being redeveloped for the 2014 Commonwealth Games which kick off in July.

The March 16 final, between the Dons and Inverness, does not yet have a home but McInnes is hoping it is played at Rangers' Ibrox or Celtic's Parkhead rather than Edinburgh's Easter Road.

"It would probably have to be Glasgow to cope with the size of the crowd," he told BBC Radio Scotland.

"I don't think anywhere else would be able to cope with it. Either Ibrox or Parkhead would do me fine. It doesn't bother me.

"Whatever ground it is, hopefully it will be full of Aberdeen fans getting behind their team."
