COMMUTERS who use the railway between Neilston and Glasgow are being warned that trains may be much busier than normal as football fans travel to Scotland's Nations League double-header at Hampden this week.

One of the stops on the Neilston to Glasgow line is Mount Florida, which is the closest station to the National Stadium, where Scotland are hosting Ukraine at 7.45pm on Wednesday.

The Republic of Ireland will then be visiting Hampden on Saturday, which also has a 7.45pm kick off.

ScotRail has also said it will be adding more trains and extra carriages for passengers travelling between Glasgow Central and Mount Florida.

Passengers are advised that queuing systems will be in place at Glasgow Central before the match and at Mount Florida station afterwards.

The train operator is asking football fans to head back to Mount Florida as quickly as possible after the event finishes and join the queues in Bolton Drive.

Extra staff will be on hand to assist passengers and ScotRail is reminding them that alcohol is prohibited on its trains and in its stations.

Phil Campbell, ScotRail's head of customer operations, said: "We're adding more seats to trains between Glasgow Central and Mount Florida to help fans get to these two crucial Nations League qualifiers against Ukraine and the Republic of Ireland.

"To keep everyone moving as quickly and safely as possible customers should plan their journeys in advance and buy their return tickets to Mount Florida before they board.

"Fans should also head back to the station as soon as they can after the final whistle to avoid leaving it until the last train of the night to get home.

"We wish the Scotland men's national team the best of luck for these two matches which could help us reach the play-offs for the next European Championships in 2024."
