A Photographic History Of Scottish Football

Recommended Posts

Absolutely scary seeing all those people perched on the top of a stand roof. Could you imagine it these days? Up there with flares, military grade detonators, Palestinian flags and huge banners threatening the BoD if they fcuk up 10 in a row. Carnage.

Yes it is.  Celtic won their third title during our 9IAR on that day.  East End Park's record attendance of just under 28,000 with another 20,000 lock out. 

Cheers. (Reprise)

Game was played in the midweek after Dunfermline won the SC in 1968 , the title was already assured for Celtic and Dunfermline paraded the Cup pre-match. There's a pic of Roy Barry , with the cup , and Billy McNeil , leading the teams out with their arms over each others shoulders !

I remember it very hazily  from the telly and all those bodies climbing up the pylons. Can't remember if it was on the late news or more likely, a midweek edition of Sportscene/Scotsport. Celtic were level on points with Rangers but had a much better goal average. Rangers had almost gone through the season undefeated until they lost in the last minute of the last game, 2-3 v Aberdeen at Ibrox (played at the same time as the Cup Final). It was two points for a win back then so Celtic took the title by 2 points.

With a Scotland double header approaching here's a flash back to Alan Hansen taking the piss out of the Brazilian legend Socrates during the 1982 World Cup....I can't recall the final score :whistle

Celtic fans escaping a crush at the City Ground, Nottingham Forest v Celtic, UEFA Cup, November 1983.

A gate opened just in time prevented fatalities according to eyewitnesses, scenes eerily similar to the tragic events that would unfold in Sheffield six years later.

Hard to beat a Mantis pic 😉

The Easter Road one was December 93: Hibs 5 Thistle 1.

The Hampden one was QP v ICT, March 97. The day the “let’s all do the Tokely” chant was born. Before all the St Mirren fans pile in, it was just a goal celebration, not the customary assault. I tried to get a photo looking back the way from the gap site, but the jobsworth wouldn’t let me through the dirty muckle fence.

Another one I was at. Great Scotland team, but I think the Brazilians we watched playing football outside would have beat them. Maybe not 4-1.

An excellent picture of the old meeting the new at Hampden in 1993

Edit: looking at Mantis's picture from the previous page, you can see why they never put seats into the concrete gap in the new east stand as the side/roof of the old main stand would have obscured the view of the pitch. The top of that section of the new east stand was subsequently built over to become part of the top tier of the modern south stand.

Furthermore, here 's almost the exact same view from a similar spot a few years prior to this with the terraces still intact. I realise I've gone about this in the wrong order, but I do like looking at the differences between the two pictures anyway.

I was at the QP v ICT game you mention.  It was Tokely's 18th birthday that day and he scored the winner I believe.

I was also sat very close to where, 18 years later, James Vincent scored the winner in the same goal to win ICT the Scottish Cup.

The days when an enormous pipe band would march up and down Hampden before the game.
 

I remember Pat Nevin dribbling through the lines of pipers and drummers in the warm-up. Beats some half-assed cheerleaders any day.
