|Match Pictures | Matches: 1977 - 1978 | 1977-1978 Pictures|
- Hibs played in unusual purple and white change strip.
- Danny McGrain is taken off with an ankle injury and will not play another league game until March 1979.
ReviewHopes are that Celtic may now have turned the corner. Young Burns was exceptional with Glavin, Craig and McAdam not far behind.
Edvaldsson's goal on half time settled them and in the second half they relaxed and played their best football of the season.
Burns created the second goal for Glavin with a great run and cross from the left and then he struck a glorious 30 yard pass for Craig to run on and score.
Despite Celtic's poor form 26,000 fans turned out and gave them great support.
