Inverness Caledonian Thistle manager John Hughes has challenged fans to fill 10,000 seats at the Scottish League Cup final.

The club has sold 7,000 tickets so far for the game at Celtic Park in Glasgow against Aberdeen on Sunday 16 March.

Aberdeen have sold nearly 40,000 tickets for the final.

Hughes told BBC Sport Scotland he was pleased with the number of tickets sold but added that he hoped more would join the Caley Jags' support.

From Monday, landmark buildings in Inverness will be lit in the team's red and blue colours to mark the countdown to the final.

Highland Council has also been supporting the club's efforts to encourage more people to turn out for the team.

Aberdeen, meanwhile, have sought more tickets to meet demand from fans.
