Poll: Hampden or Murrayfield?

King Kenny has weighed into the debate over the home of Scottish Football with an interview in the DR.

Celtic legend Dalglish said in the interview:

 “I read about the lease being up for Hampden and people saying Scotland might leave. How can our national side move from Hampden?

“I’ve been at Murrayfield for a rugby match and it really is a fantastic facility.

“However, Hampden is the home of football in Scotland. You don’t want to be moving way from that.

“It’s good to move around the country, to give the likes of Aberdeen and Edinburgh a shout. But take it to Pittodrie, Tynecastle or Easter Road, keep it in a football ground.

“I don’t know what the finances are to renovate Hampden but traditionally you need your home and it is the home of Scottish football.

It is hard to argue with his rationale for matches involving the national team, but of more importance of course are the Semi-Finals and Finals of the Betfred Cup and the Scottish Cup.

These are 6 matches that are traditionally played at Hampden, Celtic featured in 4 of the fixtures last season, winning them all.

We have had a torrid time at the national stadium and many believed it cursed, Brendan, however, has proven that neither he or his team are superstitious winning again vs Hibernian in the Betfred Cup Semi this season as well.

There was an honest mistake in that match and not the first at Hampden, maybe that is the greater issue with our record there.

Regardless of where we play there will always be the SFA officiating.

So I pose the question:

Where should the national stadium be located?
