Some derby action from years gone by, Tommy Coyne celebrates a goal v Rangers (deceased) in 1991 as a mulleted Ally McCoist looks utterly spewing, and Pat Stanton in action v Hearts at Tynecastle for Hibs sometime in the 1970's, unsure of the Jambos in the picture, that appears to be the end which now is the Roseburn stand in the background as you can the school for the deaf buildings in the distance which are still there to this day.

Hearts players are Rab Prentice and Jimmy Cant (yes he can!)  with the School End in the background now known as the Roseburn.

Alex McLeish jumps for a header with England's Luther Blisset in a 1-1 draw from 1984. Jim Bett looks on, couldnt find no team line ups but based on the mullett I suspect the number four for Scotland is Arthur Albiston, then of Man Utd.

Check out the size of the Hampden crowd !

No4 for Scotland John Wark, No2 and No5 for  England are Mick Duxbury and Gream Roberts as already stated.

The legendary Tommy Gemmell passed away a year ago today, here he is, sometime in the 1960's removing a can of beer that a patron of the jungle sportingly offered to the referee, so impressed he no doubt was with the whistler's performance.

Pheeeeew. MAGEE'S ALIVE! I was wondering if the Beast from the East had claimed another victim as it's been 4 days since you posted another page from your Celtic scrapbooks but all's obviously well.

Interesting that they didn’t wear shin guards yet I thought they were standard by the 60s (or at least recommended) - love the picture!

I think they became compulsory in the 1970's  when Tam Forsyth started playing for Rangers  !!

Old Meadowbank, former home of Leith Athletic, c 60 years ago. The stand came from St Bernard's Gymnasium ground. Note the tower on the right of the stand.

I took this photo today. Roughly the same position as the top photo. The tower on the right of the blocks of flats is the same tower as in the above pic. Soon to be b*****ding yuppie flats. The reformed Leith Athletic of the East of Scotland League played on the 3G pitch behind the fence in recent years.

Never seen photos of Old Meadowbank Tam, cheers. My uncle took me there one Saturday morning to pick up his boots and we had a wee kick about on the park. Was maybe about 1968 so he might have played for Leith among his many clubs.

My uncle mentioned above was a good mate of Tommy Gemmell after they met on holiday in Spain. Sadly he dropped dead 30 years ago on xmas day at the age of 46 so he was about the same age.

Jim Gardiner is the man to ask about Leith Ath, Mantis- he seems to have good knowledge and is on Twitter.  Oor ain Alick was going to write a history 30 years ago and never got round to it, alas.

No automatic alt text available.

The Dunbar End, South Terracing Easter Rd, even when Hearts were at their lowest the fans still turned out for the Derby game, this match was played in 1979 and as usual saw a large away support congregate on the terracing.

After a long wait of 36 years (not far off 114) the Scottish Cup came to Tynecastle, this remains the best day of my life supporting the Hearts.

A last minute header from Billy McNeil saw Celtic beat Vojvodina Novi Sad of the former Yugoslavia on this day in 1967 to book a place in the European Cup semi-final, any excuse to show this belter of a picture, Celtic in an all green away strip despite being at home.

Always annoys me to see players wearing opposition colours at a trophy presentation after swapping shirts with opponents, get your swap done after the pictures with the trophy, this Scotland team with the 1985 Rous Cup after Richard Gough's header had beaten England 1-0 at Hampden on a typically pishing with rain May afternoon in Glasgow just doesnt look right.
