Tuesday Round-Up: Do It Again

The Celtic players and staff celebrate reaching the European Cup Final on this day in 1967

THE BIG NEWS: We're now starting to build-up towards this Saturday's game with Rangers at Ibrox, and Craig Gordon is confident, even if Dembele and possibly Brown are out of the game. Talking of Brown, Patrick Roberts has said that Andy 'hilarious' Halliday's dreadful challenge only receiving a yellow card should add his upcoming appeal against his red card. Roberts has enjoyed his time at Celtic, which is due to come to an end at the end of the season. Brendan Rodgers has urged Leigh Griffiths to make the most of his role replacing Dembele, and is trying to dampen down all talk of the treble for the time being.

SITE NEWS: Yesterday we wrote about Brendan Rodgers' summer transfer plans, and why Celtic should make an attempt to bring Patrick Roberts back on loan next season.

ON THIS DAY: In 1967, Celtic reached the final of the European Cup after a 0-0 draw with Dukla Prague, meaning that the Celts had won 3-1 on aggregate. Celtic played in a much more cautious than usual defensive style, but Jock Stein's plan worked and Celtic were through to our first European final. Footage of the second leg is hard to find, so below are the goals from the first leg.
