1967-10-28: Celtic 5-3 Dundee, League Cup Final
|Match Pictures | Matches: 1967 - 1968 | 1967-68 Pictures|
- Celtic win the League Cup for the third successive season.
- Celtic travel to South America straight after the game for the world championship game with Racing Club in Buenos Aires
- Future Dundee United manager Jim McLean scores for Dundee.
ReviewCeltic scored with two quick goals through Chalmers and Hughes, the second one being a great individual effort by the big Celtic winger who beat two players with great close control before scoring.
Dundee always tried hard to go forward and they never gave up with the two McLeans, George and Jim, being their best players.
In the second half Lennox scored after a glorious long pass from Murdoch and Wallace rounded things off with number five.
Celtic never really got out of third gear but it was a sign of their strength that they could win a final whilst keeping an eye on the forthcoming trip to Buenos Aires and there was low key celebrations afterwards in view of this.
