You can just slightly see the strapping on his left thigh. He is defending the East end, the uncovered end.

 

Think this confirms it as the 76 final.

Superb tribute video to the great man's memory on this link:-

 

 

 

He was a fabulous goalie, I'm sure he was the Glasgow schools long-jump champion. It's not as if he was very tall either so it was all about positioning, anticipation and his ability to jump.

Yes, I got absolutely soaked into the bargain, what a completely miserable day.

Was 15 myself in that north stand surrounded by Huns and my Jambo group including the old man. They passed round the whisky bottle as I watched the nonsense going on behind the goals, truly mental that day

No m8, this is the 3rd goal, DJ scored that one with a header as we were outside trying to get in. 🙀

Yep, from terrified outside in the crush to get in then disappointment at the end in defeat. Little did I know this was to be the 1st of many cup finals I see us lose until 98.

I remember him as a defender in his own half showboating on the bye line near the corner flag and I think he lobbed it over a celtic player's head and ghosted past him.  It was sort of surreal.

 

 

That was Jimmy Johnstone he did it to I think, down by the corner flag at the School End IIRC

I was sat in that north stand too and pretty much in the top corner of that photo - just turned 12 years old and my first SC final
