Rare Old Firm footage from November 1985

I stumbled across this rare clip on You Tube. I’m a day late posting it, but think it’s still worth sharing. It’s from the Rangers v Celtic match of November 9th 1985. Jock Wallace’s Rangers won the game 3-0 with goals from Davie Cooper, Ian Durrant and Ted McMinn.

A strike meant there was no TV coverage but it seems an enterprising fan managed to smuggle in a video camera (no mean feat in those days – I have visions of Homer Simpson’s surveillance cowboy hat) and provided this, rather shaky, record of the game.

Interesting to see footage shot from the Govan Stand side of the pitch, which is where I used to sit in the 80s. And I suspect the soundtrack will cause palpitations in certain quarters.

Coincidentally, the Radio Clyde commentary clip I posted in September is from the same game.
