Match report
A stunning night for Caley Thistle as they achieved an historic victory at Celtic Park. The team played its heart out against a mediocre Celtic side and thoroughly deserved the 3-1 win. Nine days before there had been deep disappointment as 4000 fans travelled south only to find the game postponed because of storm damage to the newly-built Lisbon Lions stand. The same fans came back and were well rewarded. The Press dubbed this the greatest shock in Scottish football since Berwick beat Rangers in 1967. Celtic started with flair and created a number of chances but the defence held firm. In 16 minutes Caley Thistle stunned the home fans when they took a one goal lead a glancing Barry Wilson header after a precision cross from Paul Sheerin. Celtic went straight up the field and scored through Mark Burchill many thought Caley Thistles moment of glory had passed but they were wrong. In the 24th minute Bobby Mann headed a Sheerin corner goalwards and it was deflected past Jonathan Gould by Lubo Moravcik. Celtic fought hard for an equaliser but the defence matched every effort and Jim Calder made some outstanding saves. The early part of the second half was expected to be all Celtic but the onslaught did not happen and the home camp realised that victory was a strong possibility. In 57 minutes Regi Blinker hauled Wilson down in the box and Sheerin sent Gould the wrong way with the penalty to make it 3-1. It was uphill for Celtic after that and they became more and more frustrated. Caley Thistle continued to defend well and to create a number of good attacking moves. Charlie Christie ran the midfield and was named Man of the Match. Substitutes Martin Glancy and Martin Bavidge combined to set up a good chance close to the end but indecision as to who was to shoot allowed the Celtic defence to clear. By this time thousands of home fans had walked out and Caley Thistle ran out clear winners. The remaining Celtic fans sportingly applauded the Caley Thistle players and fans but turned their wrath on their own team. Caley Thistle now look forward to a 4th Round home tie against Aberdeen and live Sky TV coverage.
