1971-01-27: Scotland XI 2-1 Celtic/Rangers Select, Ibrox Distaster Fund
|Match Pictures | Matches: 1970 - 1971 | 1970-71 Pictures|
- A combined select in respect to raise funds following the Ibrox Stadium disaster. (see link)
- £45,000 is raised on the night at Hampden Park.
- Sadly the fans don't mix and there is chanting from both the Rangers end and Celtic end of the ground.
- Even sadder, Rangers later tried (unsuccessfully) to have: a/; all of the disaster fund, or b/; the £50,000 they had paid into it used as compensation in the event they were found liable for damages [See Match Pictures].
ReviewThis game was a marvellous spectacle with every player turning on the style but Charlton and Best are especially impressive.
Gordon Banks and Wyn Davies pulled out with injury beforehand.
