    Here's a game from the late 70s when both sides were a shadow of their early-70s best, but about halfway through you'll see Stein coming on to help wrestle Celtic fans off the pitch.

    That was apparently the third Hibs v Celtc game in eleven days.

    An attendance of 16k and the one three days earlier, at the same venue, had just under 11k.

    Heady days.

    As far as I can tell, there are only goals available up to 3-3, none of the extra time efforts have been saved for posterity.

    On you tube there is a guy, John Sparky who has uploaded various Hibs highlights from that era. Goals v Hadjuk Split, v Airdrie (6-1?), some Jimmy O'Rourke compilation, goals v Juventus.

    I would love to see more available. There must be a few on here with a collection hoarded away?

    I've seen them a number of times, most recently on the FB page Old Scottish Football Pictures a couple of days ago and they have a number of the old Hibs and Scotland games and the likes of Celtic v Leeds 1970. It is a closed site so you can't see the games without being a member, but worth joining.

    The above is Hibs v Aberdeen just before the 1/1/1973 and in particular Alan Gordon's fantastic flying header.

    I also seen to remember the whole five goals on the TT video/DVD. I went with my boss, who wasn't a football fan [He used to let me have Saturday afternoon's off for the football], but had a couple of jars and went with me, so I had to curtail my celebrations [slightly] and a quote from one of the Sundy's was "I never thought there was any team in the world that could take five off the Scottish champions".

    Brought back good memories brilliant piece yet again Johnnyboy. Some of the football we played that day was a joy to watch. We played some fantastic football against Rangers as well. My abiding memory from that day of the final was the train journey from Central Station to Mount florida. There was two celtic fans glue sniffing on the train. At the game
    celtic fans were climbing up and were on the rafters underneath the mount florida end and throwing bottles down on hibs fans as well as their own fans they did the same at the Scottish Cup final in May. This was common behaviour back then.
    Hibs TV should upload the highlights onto ytube as only the first minute is all that is available.

    We beat them the following year as well in the final. Great Times just wish the younger generation had more highlights to watch.

    Johnnyboy Sporting Lisbon game would be a great one for your next report.
    Keep up the good work.
    Agreed about the comments about Johnnyboy. It is criminal that there was no TV footage of the Lisbon game.

    Brilliant thanks for posting

    Mike MacDonald booting the Celtic player in the gonads

    Ah Tony Higgins stood six foot three jumped five foot ten.
    We've had a few of them. Steven Tweed springs to mind from more recent times.

    There's no way I'd have been allowed to go to games against the Old Firm back then but I clearly remember tuning in for the post-match round-up on BBC1 Scotland (presented by Gordon Hewitt!) when we thumped Celtic that day and rushing off to tell my dad the news.
