A Photographic History Of Scottish Football


Recommended Posts

Hans Krankl was the cheating b*****d/severely injured player* in that Celtic v Rapid Vienna game.

He had a short pop career and had a No 2 hit in the Austrian charts as Johann K (his real first name is Johann)

Krankl was the captain, but it was Rudi Weinhofer who was (maybe) hit by missile. Krankl wanted to take his team off the pitch, which caused a long and dramatic delay. While the tie was completed at Old Trafford, with Rapid advancing, Manchester United were playing the same evening at Tannadice, beating Dundee United 3-2.

I wonder if they played The Specials' "Message to you Rudi" at the next match...

In the context of Celtic having to play their Europa League game yesterday on a weekday afternoon: I noted that precisely 50 years ago today (Wednesday 20th October 1971), both Celtic and Rangers played home European ties simaltaneously. Evidently the City of Glasgow Police were made of sterner stuff than Police Scotland when it came to having 2 key matches on the same night.

Wednesday 20th October 1971
Celtic 5-0 Sliema Wanderers     (29,000)     European Cup R2 1st leg
Rangers 3-2 Sporting Lisbon      (50,000)     European Cup-Winners' Cup R1 1st leg


Latter tie's return famously finished by same scoreline of 3-2 in Portugal a fortnight later, went to extra-time during which it became 4-3, but referee mistakenly took it to penalties which Sporting won by the itself unusual scoreline of 2-0 (visitors missing all their opening 4 attempts).

UEFA ultimately awarded the victory to Rangers making it "the shootout that never was":

It then happened twice in 1984:

Wednesday 3rd October 1984
Celtic 3-0 Gent                                         (32,749)     European Cup-Winners' Cup R1 2nd leg
Rangers 2-0 Bohemians Dublin     (31,000)     UEFA Cup R1 2nd leg
Wednesday 7th November 1984
Celtic 3-0 Rapid Vienna     (48,813)     European Cup-Winners' Cup R2 2nd leg
Rangers 3-1 Inter Milan     (30,594)     UEFA Cup R2 2nd leg


Celtic v Rapid Vienna was marred by crowd disorder, during which a Rapid Vienna player was struck by an object thrown from the crowd. Having won tie 4-3 on aggregate Celtic were made to contest a playoff at Old Trafford which they lost 1-0.


Wednesday 22nd October 1986
Celtic 1-1 Dynamo Kiev     (47,858)     European Cup R2 1st leg
Rangers 2-1 Boavista           (38,772)     UEFA Cup R2 1s leg



Wednesday 30th July 1997
Celtic 5-0 Inter Cardiff     (41,537)     UEFA Cup QR1 2nd leg
Rangers 6-0 GI Gotu          (44,433)     Champions League QR1 2nd leg



That seems to have been the last time.

It never seems to have occurred in Edinburgh, Dundee or Falkirk.

Falkirk and The Shire both playing home European ties on the same night? Nope, safe to say it's never happened.

You're probably right...


Both played in the Anglo-Scottish Cup of 1980-81, but lost their opening ties and played home legs a few days apart... Falkirk drew 2-2 v Morton on Saturday 2nd August (lost away 5-1); whilst 'Shire (having won away 3-1) lost 3-0 v Kilmarnock on Wednesday 6th.

Dundee v Cologne for me. 

The greatest last 20 minutes of a game I've ever witnessed at Dens (or probably any other ground tbf). Wolfgang Overath would be a World Cup winner 3 years later but left the pitch in tears that night. Apparently gave some Dundee players the German version of 'yer tea's oot' when they went 4-2 up on aggregate. They weren't slow to remind him of that at full time

It was a great game. Next round against AC Milan was another memorable one.

I was at both games against Kilmarnock. Don't think I've ever felt worse after a game than that second leg. (Well, until losing the LL play-off, anyway). Missed out on a trip to Blackpool where my brother was living at the time. Gutted.
