Think ive seen that image on the excellent Celtic Wiki page, by all accounts it's before a friendly against Tottenham before the 67-68 season, played at Hampden because of building work at Celtic Park and just a few weeks after Lisbon.

Roy Aitken and Mark Walters in the 1989 Scottish Cup Final, Rangers were going for the treble that day but Joe Miller scored the only goal of the game for Celtic following an horrendous pass back from Gary Stevens.

Look that crowd. Terracing was/is lovely.

And I used to think the term crowd w**k came from Falkirk fans.

One of the finest exponents of facial hair in Scottish football in the 70's and 80's, Ian Scanlon of St Mirren and Aberdeen.

I was at that game as a 12 year old, remember being knocked flying by umpteen bodies when Celtic scored, just laughed it off as you did back then.

Social media meltdowns and possible legal action would be the norm these days in such a scenario.

It was part of the Queen's Park centenary celebrations I remember seeing a programme cover for the game. Had the Celtic v Spurs game and QP v a British Amateur Select the night before.

Celic drew 3-3 with Spurs on 5th August before a crowd of 91.708.

Hampden in its mid-90s inbetween state (pretty much the fourth picture) is how I would have seen it the first time I was there. It would have been the summer of 1995 or 1996 and I was with my dad and his mate who was a Reading fan. My mum must have been away shopping in the city centre and my dad's mate must have wanted a look at the old place so we went along. No game on, hardly anybody about but had a kickabout outside the old main stand for a bit. We then saw the old gate between the main stand and the covered west terrace was open so we went in and had a quick kickabout before leaving in case anyone chased us away. I remember it vaguely, particularly how dark it seemed in the old west terrace with its old cover. My first game at Hampden would have been around 2000 for one of the friendly matches, I'll need to have a look and see what games could have been the first, but I remember being at the 2001 League Cup semi-final against St. Mirren where Killie won 3-0.

Were they not sponsored by the SHEB or something?

Might be that, I specifically recall they were the unofficial sponsors of the Scottish Cup in that era, you would often see 'Kick Cigarettes out the park' type adverts at the cup final and the man of the match would get the Mr Superfit award :lol:

Nowadays football clubs would advertise heroin if the laws allowed it and it paid enough.

I’ve got a signed programme somewhere from that game. It was a double bill for the Centenary of Queen’s Park, with them facing the British Army (I’m sure there’s a joke in there somewhere). My uncle got it for me as he was a good mate of Tam Gemmell after they met on holiday in Spain. Threw most of my programmes out years ago but kept a handful of decent ones.

Wild guess, but I think this is before Wembley '65. Pretty sure that was the forward line.

Spoke to my Dad about this fixture earlier, said he wrote to Celtic for a ticket and put in the relevant money to cover it. Few days later he had a ticket sent back to him down in London.

(He did the same for the 66 World Cup. He has the letter from the FA confirming all his tickets etc, still has his West Germany rosette and ticket stubs.)

He went to Celtic's fixture with Man United the season earlier, think Celtic gave them bit of a hiding. Said they were easily one of the best sides he has ever seen.

He and quite a few others I think would watch any Scottish side, I suppose there was a bit more affinity with the players then.
