- Jinky & Bobby Lennox Testimonial
- Jock Stein's first game back at the helm after his car crash in July 1975.
- Chelsea's ex Celt David Hay makes a guest appearance for Celtic to assist with his recovery from injury.
- Ex Celt Tommy Docherty brings up his United team who have just lost the FA cup to Southampton two weeks previously.
Dalglish turns in masterful display with a glorious hat trick. United still reeling from shock FA cup final defeat to Southampton two weeks previously.
Celtic fans chant 'We want Hay' all through the game, a plea to the club to sign their former star who turned in an impeccable display at sweeper.
Johnstone and Lennox had an emotional lap of honour before wee Jinky has a his own final lap and throws his boots into the Jungle.
Billy Connolly refereed an ex players game before the match started. Connolly came out with a Rangers scarf and jersey to howls of good natured abuse from the crowd.
Celtic: Fallon Craig Gemmell McNeill Clark Murdoch Auld
Opposition: Wilson (Arsenal) Stiles Crerand Baxter (Rangers) Giles (Leeds) Bobby Charlton and Bobby Collins
Ronnie Simpson led Celtic out but couldn't play through injury.
Celtic won 4-3 - Murdoch 2, Auld, Craig - Charlton 2, Stiles
The crowd roared their approval of the old boys and this warmed them up before the game on a typically dreich, wet Glasgow night.
