On 23rd October 1971, Thistle created nothing short of a major sensation in the football world when in the League Cup Final they demolished the all-conquering Celtic team of that period by four goals to one.
Having led by an incredible 4-0 at half time! The names run ever so easily off every Thistle tongue:
Rough, Hansen, Forsyth, Glavin, Campbell, Strachan, McQuade, Coulston, Bone, Rae, Lawrie. Substitute: Gibson.
Alex Rae, Bobby Lawrie, Denis McQuade and Jimmy Bone all found the Celtic net, much to the delight of all Thistle fans (and a good few others as well!)
