Today’s photo of the day revisits an away day in the sun from many years ago, as Celtic faced Dundee at Dens Park on 24 September 1983. A crowd of 11,000 turned up, the bulk of which were Celtic supporters, and were treated to an eight goal fest as Celtic thumped the hosts 6-2.

The away support appeared to be giving either a ‘cheerio’ gesture to the opposition fans, or perhaps they’re giving them a ‘five’ before the sixth goal went in. Either way, it looks like a celebratory mood.
Celtic actually went behind in the 19th minute, but hit back with a strike by Tommy Burns before Brian McClair netted four goals! Melrose scored a sixth, then Ferguson got his and Dundee’s second of the game with a late consolation.
