But the massive delays could be the start of worries for the Tartan Army tonight.

Due to the game interruption, the European Championship qualifier ends at 11:20 p.m.

And the last train to leave Mount Florida, the closest station to the stadium, departs at 11:58pm and doesn’t get fans to Glasgow until after midnight.

For fans who can’t take the train, there are numerous buses bound for the city center from Hampden bus station.

It could be bad news for fans living outside of Glasgow, however, as many of the last trains to leave the city depart before midnight.

The torrential rain has also caused flooding on railway lines and roads, leaving Glasgow Central underground platforms out of service.

The M8 at Kingston Bridge was also temporarily closed due to flooding.

Warning football fans of the potential issues, ScotRail said on social media: “We are already running additional trains from Mt Florida to Glasgow Ctl until 11:58pm tonight – not all are showing on our app.”

“Unfortunately, we will no longer be able to offer any services after this.

“Tonight’s flooding also means trains and train crew are out of place. Please plan your return journey based on this.”

Many fans have responded to the news asking about later trains to take them to Lanarkshire, West Lothian and Edinburgh but have received bad news.

The last train to leave Glasgow Central that fans can catch is the 00:15 for Ayr.

And the last train to leave Glasgow Queen Street is the 00:23 train for Airdrie.
