Hearts fan burnt his cup final ticket trying to iron out creases
Ian Downie wanted to get rid of the fold on his ticket but managed to char it.
A Hearts fan burnt his cup final ticket trying to iron out a crease.
Ian Downie wanted to get rid of the fold on his ticket so thought he would straighten it out with the heat.
The 34-year-old told the Evening News: "I saw my mate’s ticket which looked fresh and brand new and thought 'I'll just spruce this up a little'. I put it in a tea towel and ironed it, but I was in shock when I took it out."
Luckily the seat number and reference number are still visible on the ticket and he can apply for a new ticket.
Mr Downie called the SFA who said he could get a replacement as long as he still has the original.
He has now made an appointment with the ticket manager at Hearts to make sure he gets to Hampden.
