League Cup Final 1970
That's my dad's face nearest the policeman's hand (right hand side). That picture appeared in the newspaper, my mum was raging.Yes. I'm pretty sure the wooden gates at Cathkin were forced open that day around kick off time. It was searing heat and the crowds outside the turnstyles were utterly chaotic.
Cheers were echoing out from inside the ground heralding the appearance of both teams cue the gates being forced. It was a very scary situation!
Rangers won 2-0 that day which was on August 8th.1961, League Cup tie.
Great photo that, one of my favourite cup finals ever, look at Durrant in the background that pose summed him up that day , glorious!Rangers 3-3 Aberdeen - Skol (League) Cup Final, 25th October 1987. Rangers have just equalised late on to take it to extra time (winning on penalties) and Leighton as usual is claiming off-side or whatever lol:
I second @ItsInTheNet comments. I have not seen the first and last photos. It is strange to think that at those moments, me and my pals were going berserk and we did not know that the young goalscorer would become a hero of ours in the years to come. Also good to see Willie Wallace with a wry smile on his face in the last photo.League Cup Final 1970
Yes. Motherwell had a great side back then, Ancell Babes as they were known. This is the game you refer too I think. Over 80,000 were present including a smaller version of myself ha ha.Lost the replay 5 2.
Ian St John is the Motherwell player on the left.Yes. Motherwell had a great side back then, Ancell Babes as they were known. This is the game you refer too I think. Over 80,000 were present including a smaller version of myself ha ha.
George Niven, Harold Davis at forefront and I think Bill Paterson is the other Ranger far left.
Is this not Williamson scoring the fourth.Rangers Billy Williamson is challenged by Alec Boden. Williamson scored the fourth in a resounding 4-0 victory for The Rangers.
Celtic had called for their fans to boycott the fixture due to what they perceived to be biased refereeing in 2 previous clashes.
Somethings never change eh .
The 65,000 crowd were mainly Rangers supporters and the opposite end sparsely populated. A thrashing was well deserved and duly delivered
Was there ever a goal where that bandy prick never ran after the referee or linesman.Great photo that, one of my favourite cup finals ever, look at Durrant in the background that pose summed him up that day , glorious!
