A lot of Celtic fans are reacting to highlights posted on Twitter showing the club’s cup final win against Dundee United back in 1974.
The 1974 Scottish Cup Final was played on 4 May 1974 at Hampden Park in Glasgow and was the 89th showpiece of the competition. Celtic won the match 3–0 with goals from Harry Hood, Steve Murray and Dixie Deans, via thecelticwiki.
It was not just a historic day as they won yet another title but it was also a historic campaign as they won the league title as well that year and secured their ninth title in a row.
This is very similar to the Celtic squad of the present day, who were looking to secure their ninth league title in a row prior to the pandemic. The Hoops currently sit 13 points clear of Old Firm rivals Rangers who have nine games left to play whilst Celtic have eight (BBC Sport).
However with football currently postponed it is unknown what will happen to the current campaign. Some reports have suggested the league will be abandoned and Celtic will be given the title whilst Hearts are relegated, per The Guardian.
Loads of Bhoys fans were left reminiscing about the 1974 win, here is what some had to say…

My Dad took me and a pal to that game. I’d been to Hampden a few times previously but that was my first time in the old R*****s end. Very dusty when we scored, all the dust from the old banked terraces reared up and choked you. Great memories of that day 😎🍀💚
