Scottish Cup Final 1969 "The Old Firm" Celtic Rangers

26 April 1969 
Hampden Park,
 Saturday 26th April 1969 was the day Celtic thrashed Rangers 4:0 in the Scottish Cup final in front of a crowd of 133,000, a scoreline which even today brings a smile to my wrinkled and weather-beaten old face.
Although Celtic were slight favourites at the bookies, the papers at the time thought it might take a replay to separate the teams given that we were without our two wingers Johnstone (suspended) and Hughes (injured).

Celtic: Fallon, Craig, McNeill, Brogan, Gemmell, Connelly, Murdoch, Auld, Lennox, Chalmers, Wallace. Coach: Jock Stein
Rangers: Martin, Johanssen, Greig, McKinnon, Mathieson, Henderson, Smith, Penman, Persson, Johnston, Ferguson. Coach: David White
