1976-11-06: Celtic 1-2 Aberdeen, League Cup
|Match Pictures | Matches: 1976 - 1977 | 1976-77 Pictures|
- Celtic's thirteenth consecutive apperance in the League Cup final.
- Celtic badly miss the cup tied pair of Pat Stanton and Joe Craig.
- Davie Robb had a premonition the night before the game that he would score the winning goal.
ReviewCeltic dominated this game and were most unlucky to lose on a horrid day of wet and windy weather.
Playing some fine football Celtic cut through the Dons' defence time after time and only good goalkeeping from Bobby Clark and poor finishing kept them from winning. Wilson had several bad misses and Lennox and Glavin also missed decent chances.
Celtic dominated the second half and both periods of extra time but could not deliver the killer blow to kill the Dons' hopes.
Aberdeen scored their winning goal against the run of play and colourful manager Ally MacLeod celebrated wildly at the end with his jubilant players.
Next day an open top bus took the Dons around Aberdeen with the trophy and this event was curiously covered live by STV!
