Celtic 2-1 Bayern Munich Played in San FranciscoJoe McBride:
''We [McBride and Gerd Muller ] spoke about a game Celtic played against Bayern in San Francisco in 1966,'' McBride said. ''It was a pre-season friendly but it was not especially friendly.
''Gerd was just a kid starting out and it still is amazing to recall at that time one of the world's greatest goal scorers was playing at right back.
''He got himself into an argument with Steve Chalmers and hooked Stevie, who chased him round the pitch. But before Stevie could get to him a big guy wearing a kilt had jumped the barriers and stuck one on Gerd - he was flat out on the track.
''When we spoke about the incident he recalled every detail - apart from the time he was unconscious.''
