    Match is Celtic (hoops) v Hibernian. Only meeting between the teams at that time at Hampden was Scottish League Cup Final on 5 April 1969. Game was due to be played in October 1968 but a fire at Hampden caused a delay. Celtic won 6-2.

    Pretty sure this is erroneous. Celtic did indeed play Hibs at Hampden in October 68. But the playing footage includes Kenny Dalglish, and most notably Dixie Deans (who was not on Celtic's books in 68) and Lou Macari scoring and this suggests this is the Scottish Cup Final of 1972. This resulted in a 6-1 victory for Celtic courtesy of a Deans hat trick, Macari (2) and captain Billy McNeil with Alex Gordon replying for Hibs. It burns brightly for me as it was my first awestruck 9 year old in a crowd of over 100,000.
