Scotland the Cups

The Cups. Celtic and Dundee United met at the final of the FA Cup and in front of 74 000 Celtic prevailed 2-1 – McAvennie scored twice to Celtic and Gallacher responded for Dundee.
Dundee United was unable to spoil Celtic’s party. From 1980 on Dundee United reached cup finals 8 times and lost 7 times…
Celtic really celebrated their centenary season – with a double! Can’t beat that.
The League Cup final opposed Rangers to Aberdeen. Both teams tried to compensate for a relatively weak season and produced exciting final, which was 3-3 after overtime and had to be decided by penalty shoot-out. Only at this stage Rangers prevailed 5-3.
Unlucky Aberdeen. They were keeping their ground even without Ferguson, but winning was out of reach. At least for the moment.
Glasgow Rangers won the League Cup – now called Skol Cup after the sponsor – and ended the season with a trophy, but… this expensive squad should have been much more successful. Just a League Cup was not enough.
