Steven Gerrard looking for a reaction from Rangers against Kilmarnock

He said at the time: "We got into some good positions and either made the wrong decision or showed a serious lack of quality".

But the SPFL have chose to give defending champions Celtic 25,000 tickets and Aberdeen 20,000 after discussions with both clubs as well as the Hampden Park safety officer and Police Scotland.

The Roma loanee was in action for the entire duration of Sunday's game and had a golden chance to cancel out Lewis Ferguson's opener for Aberdeen in the second half.

Aberdeen midfielder Lewis Ferguson headed home the late victor at Hampden against a Rangers side that had only one of 15 shots on target.

Celtic have won 21/21 Cup games under the Irishman, scoring 67 goals and conceding only seven! I thought tactically when we went to 10 we were very good and very professional.

"They only had one shot on target, which was pleasing for us as a group of players. If that doesn't happen, at any big club, the managers and the recruitment will find better players or players who will do that".

In a club statement, Aberdeen said they had "negotiated" 20,000 tickets.

However, Windass is still clearly passionate about the club and hopefully we can learn from the experience to start winning these games once more.

Gerrard was given the opportunity before yesterday's Betfred Cup semi-final to backtrack on his words, but elected to stand by what he said at the time.

The 'Gers were beaten 1-0 by Aberdeen in the Scottish League Cup last weekend, leading Gerrard to warn he could dip into the transfer market in January.

"If roles had been reversed and we were playing against a Rangers then that is the same game plan we would want - to stick 11 behind the ball and then to win it via a set piece like they did".

"I'm really looking forward to seeing the reaction of my players".

"We could have done better at the end of the day".
