- Stein has to clear the field of Celtic fans after Celtic are refused a penalty.
- Burns missed a penalty late on.
ReviewCeltic suffered one of their heaviest defeats in Jock Stein's reign as manager as Hibs grabbed the initiative in the fight for a UEFA cup place.
Young junior Mike Conroy was thrown into the deep end on his debut and done well, even managing to score Celtic's only goal with a brave header.
Hibs started well and finished strongly, however the game was held up in the second half when several hundred Celtic fans invded the field of play and it took the intervention of Jock Stein to clear them from the pitch.
