Celtic Glasgow - Glasgow Rangers - 02/01/1971

The Old Firm derby attracted enormous crowds and this game at Ibrox Stadium was no different. The match was heading for a goalless draw until Celtic scored with a minute to go, prompting a mass exodus of disappointed Rangers fans.

Although Colin Stein scored for Rangers in the last minute for 1-1 draw, many Rangers supporters were still on their way out. But with so many fans leaving at the same time, the downward force pushed many people trying to get out to the stadium onto the ground. The momentum of the crowd meant that once people started to fall, there was no way of holding the mass of bodies back and 66 people lost their lives, with another 140 suffering injuries.// BBC

POLICE arrested 23 people as violence erupted after the Old Firm clash.

Sixteen fans, including one woman, were arrested for public order offences at Celtic Park immediately after yesterday’s game, and another seven were arrested in the city centre and Lanarkshire last night. In Govan, a 40-year-old man was stabbed in the chest at Benburb Social Club in Craigton Road. He was taken to the Southern General Hospital, where his condition was said to be serious but stable. Police also closed McChuills in High Street after the pub was attacked by a mob of 30 Rangers fans. One man was taken to hospital with a hand injury and another arrested. Celtic fan Stephen Breen (27), from Belfast, said: “There was a real party atmosphere in the bar and then suddenly bottles came flying into the bar. “You could hear windows all around being smashed and groups of guys inside the pub tried to force the doors shut. If they hadn’t managed to do that there would have been a bloodbath.”

There were also two assaults in streets near Celtic Park shortly after the game. A 23-year-old man suffered head injuries in a fracas in Tollcross Road, near Parkhead Cross. He was taken to the Royal Infirmary. Five minutes later, in London Road at Rimsdale Street, a 35-year-old man was jumped by a gang carrying weapons. He was taken to the Royal Infirmary with a serious eye injury, and released after treatment.

Police also reported disturbances at other pubs in the east end, as well as Ayrshire, Greenock and Campbeltown. However, the number of arrests was significantly lower than after last Wednesday’s CIS League Cup semi-final between the two clubs, when 41 people were taken into custody. Strathclyde Police said they were delighted with the behaviour of fans at the ground as Celtic all but clinched the Premier League title with a 1-0 win over Rangers. Some 600 officers and 800 stewards policed the match. // Glasgow Evening Times
