1978-03-01: Celtic 2-0 Heart of Midlothian, League Cup
|Match Pictures | Matches: 1977 - 1978 | 1977-1978 Pictures|
- Celtic qualify for their 14th consecutive League cup final.
ReviewCeltic easily brushed first division Hearts aside in this semi final at Hampden. Opportunist goals by strikers Craig and McCluskey give Celtic a deserved win and a place in the final against Rangers on March 18th. Latchford also made a great save from Robertson in the first half and this was Hearts' only chance.
Due to injuries John Dowie was forced into playing at left back in an emergency and did well. Dowie is rumoured to be shortly joining Bobby Lennox on his way to Houston Hurricanes in the USA.
TeamsCeltic: Latchford Sneddon Dowie Munro MacDonald Aitken Wilson Craig (Doyle) McCluskey Burns Conn (Edvaldsson)
Goals: Craig 16 McCluskey 36
Hearts: Dunlop Kidd Fraser Jefferies (Shaw) Rodger Tierney Park (Prentice) Bannon Gibson Busby Robertson
