    Parking near Hampden

    I'm now semi-rural so public transport isn't as attractive an option any more. With this in mind, what're people's experiences of driving into Glasgow for Hampden? Not too fussed about a 20/30 min walk, just looking for somewhere that's cheap, with spaces, and not anywhere near the Rangers fans!

    I have parked up near King's Park train station (I think its called that) a couple of times. Free parking and only 5/10 min walk to the ground.

    Lots of parking within 5 mins rather than 30.

    Toryglen Asda - 2 mins away from the East Stand. Parked there multiple times for Scotland and Hibs, and never received the threatened, unenforceable 2 hour surplus fine.

    I used the just park app the last couple times I drove to Hampden. Found it decent, parked on someoneís driveway fairly close to the ground for something like a fiver.

    Thatís where I tend to go. You canít really park much nearer, as they have parking restrictions when sporting events are on
    Weíll also be in the East of the Stadium anyway

    I did that for 2016 final.

    Came back to the car and the house owners had left me a card and a bottle of fizz! Turns out they were big Celtic fans and were delighted we had pumped the Huns in the final.

    I'd be willing to rent out my resident's ticket for a mere twenty quid.

    How could you possibly know what end we will be at? Surely the ends are randomly allocated at our neutral National Stadium.
