Celtic 3 Rangers 0 - 24-03-91

In every bad season there is always a game or two that keeps you going. Celtic's abysmal form in the run up to the turn of the year had seen them slide down the table. But the new year had brought new form, and in the months leading up to this game Billy McNeills side were undefeated in 8 league games - winning the last 5 straight without conceding a goal.

The previous week had seen the Hoops dump Rangers out of the Scottish Cup in the infamous St Paddy's Day massacre game. And Celtic were in no mood to let Rangers have their revenge. An early goal from the much maligned Anton Rogan sets the scene. Joe Miller adds a second, before Scott Nisbet makes everyone's day complete by being shown the Red Card. Tommy Coyne adds a third for Celtic and we all go home happy. Until the semi-final, that is. Motherwell would dump us on our arses over two games.
