Photo Of The Day: A Game That Proved Beating Champions 3-0 Meant Nothing

In May 1995 Celtic beat Rangers 3-0 in a dead rubber as the Ibrox side had already lifted the league title.

A week later, the team headed to Easter Road and drew 1-1 with Hibernian. Willie Falconer scored the goal for the Celts.

The game merely highlighted the insignificance of the derby victory a few days earlier. It also had no bearing on the following season as Rangers again won the title, just as they did for a further two seasons also.

There isn’t always a lot to celebrate about 3-0 victories when one team has already done their job for the season at your expense.

Hailing from an Irish background, I grew up on the English south coast with the good fortune to begin watching Celtic during the Martin O'Neill era. I have written four Celtic books since the age of 19: Our Stories & Our Songs: The Celtic Support, Take Me To Your Paradise: A History Of Celtic-Related Incidents & Events, Walfrid & The Bould Bhoys: Celtic's Founding Fathers, First Season & Early Stars, and The Holy Grounds of Glasgow Celtic: A Guide To Celtic Landmarks & Sites Of Interest. These were previously sold in Waterstones and official Celtic FC stores, and are now available on Amazon.
