On This Day: Martin O’Neill’s Celtic beat Rangers at Hampden

On This Day in 2001, Martin O’Neill’s Celtic took a step towards an eventual Treble with a 3-1 win over Rangers at Hampden. After being beaten by Rangers back in November, the Ibrox club were favourites going into the game but were soundly beaten.

Chris Sutton gave the Celts the lead after just six minutes. The Englishman benefited as Vega’s header hit the bar.

Next, Henrik bullied Bob Malcolm before chipping Klos. It was a splendid goal from The King of Kings.

Celtic completed their progression to the Final after Larsson scored from the spot.

Celtic:- Gould, Boyd (Johnson 90), Mjallby, Vega, McNamara (Petta 45), Lambert, Lennon, Petrov, Thompson, Larsson (Moravcik 75), Sutton.

Rangers:- Klos, Malcolm, Wilson, Konterman, Tugay (Johnston 45), Numan, Reyna, Ferguson, Albertz, Flo, McCann (Mols 59).
