Looked it up thanks, 1976.

Motherwell went on to the semi final and blew it 3-2 after being 2-0 up at halftime v Rangers. 

I wasn't born then but this comment has enraged me. Did we f**k.

The memory of this game has clearly been passed down the generations. 

ETA: About 1.15 in

Apologies regarding saying Motherwell blew it.

44 years later and my memory iz fading from that night.

Having seen the video i now realised Motherwell collapsed.

It was Derek Johnstone that collapsed, M8.

Maybe felt like three or four games.

Sadly it was only one game at Rugby Park.

Being a saddoe I checked the Thistle Archive site. Feb 9 1983 Rugby Park, third replay, Killie nil Thistle one. We then played three games (well two and bit) against Clyde before losing to Aberdeen. So eight games in the cup and we never even got to Hampden!

Bob Marley looking quite in awe of Dixie Deans 😀

Unsure if it's his magnificent mullet/tache combo or his penchant for Cup final hat tricks against Hibernian but the reggae legend looks starstruck.

Not so good at penalties v. Milan , unfortunately

Yes it looks like Bob is saying "Hey Dixie Deans superstar how many miles was it over the bar?"

Brian McClair celebrates scoring the only goal of a twice replayed Scottish Cup 3rd round tie between Celtic and Aberdeen in 1987 at neutral and rain lashed Dens Park, David Robertson and Willie Miller look less impressed.

Can older posters confirm if neutral venues were the norm for multiple replayed games before the advent of penalty kicks in the Scottish Cup? This is the only one in my lifetime I can recall.

Was this a game the one mcclair scored from the penalty spot

On seeing this photo again, it looks as if Reggae legend Bob Marley is becoming slightly aroused at the sight of former Motherwell forward Dixie Deans.

As an aside would Marley have known Gil Scott Heron? If so maybe not unrealistic that he would have taken an interest!

You got a shot at home if you were drawn at home
You got a shot at home if you drew the first game away.
After that it was neutral because neither side should have an advantage.

The one I remember was Killie v Hearts in 1987. After the replay was drawn at Rugby Park either a coin was tossed or lots were drawn to decide the next venue, which was Kilmarnock once again. Hearts prevailed sadly :(

The next time a replay was drawn at Rugby Park was versus Stranraer in 1989-90 and became the first ever Scottish Cup tie to go to penalties. Of course Killie's knack of ignominious Scottish Cup firsts ensured victory for Stranraer :(

No photographic records can be found for either occasion unfortunately.

Thistle v Killie in about 1980 went to four games (I think, could be wrong, could have been three) but deffo no neutral ground involved. Mo Johnston scored the winner in about the 400th minute. 

Correct - I was at all 4 games and was facing the prospect of another 30 minutes extra tine when the wee sh!te scored in the last minute.  None were at neutral venues. 

I also remember going to 3 Scottish cup ties against Clydebank round this time, with the 3rd game being at neutral Love Street, Paisley.   We lost that tie as well.

A mazy dribble around Glasgow yesterday taking in the football grounds as a way of seeing the city.

Hampden > Lesser > Hampden Bowling Club > Cathkin > Shawfield > Velodrome > Left Cheek > Glasgow Green > Barrowlands > Oscar Marzaroli exhibition > City Centre > F&C Canal > Firhill > Kelvinbridge > Kelvingrove > SECC Tennent's Sixes > Waverley > Right Cheek > Bellahouston > Pollok Country Park > Pollok FC > Langside > Ruel St > Hampden.

An utterly delightful walk, in glorious autumnal sunshine. Burst 50,000 steps, which took me almost nine hours, including a couple of pit stops.

No doubt I've missed out some football heritage sites. For example, I could have easily detoured towards Park Gardens to pay my respects to Jim Farry, or it wouldn't have been much of a stretch to see Benburb FC.

A perfectly good way to spend an otherwise idle day off. Would recommend!

Highlight was undoubtedly Firhill which just looks magnificent when approached from canal, a route I've never taken before, affording a superb view into the stadium from the towpath.

Good stuff. I'll try and get a map and work out an Edinburgh equivalent (Warning: might contain rugby but I hope not!)

I was at all of them too.   It's been torture watching us in the Scottish Cup in the main since the early 70s. 

We were not only the first team to lose a Scottish Cup tie on penalties, we were the first team to lose a Scottish Cup tie  twice on penalties - can't remember off the top of my head who that was against - QotS??

Correct. Still to win a Scottish Cup penalty shoot out as well :(

Also lost the first ever Scottish Cup tie, only team to lose the final to a team from a league below etc. etc...

In a shameless attempt to shoehorn this picture in!

First, yes and only i know, Ayrshire Scottish Cup winners to be knocked out the next year by relegation threatened, lower league, inferior opposition?

Sorry @kilMARKnock, don't want to tip you over the edge!
