Video: Celtic 3-2 Rangers, The Maestro Was At His Imperious Best

On this day in 1982, Celtic twice came from behind to beat Rangers 3-2. Paul McStay was in inspired form, winning a crunching tackle to start off the move, which he then finished off to draw Celtic level. Having fell behind again, McStay won another challenge with determined play, showed quick feet to take on the defender and slipped a well timed pass to McGarvey, who made no mistake. Victory was then sealed by Murdo MacLeod.

Hailing from an Irish background, I grew up in Bournemouth with the good fortune to begin watching Celtic as a young child during the Martin O'Neill era. Still living on the south coast, I have a season ticket at Paradise and also travel to European away matches when possible. At the age of 19, I published my first Celtic book (Our Stories & Our Songs: The Celtic Support). Then, last year, I published my second book (Take Me To Your Paradise: A History Of Celtic-Related Incidents & Events), which is sold in Waterstones and official Celtic FC stores.
