Match Report


For over 40 years I've attended Dens Park. I've seen many demonstrations, but never anything like the scenes on Wednesday night.

When Dundee cracked home the second goal against St Mirren hundreds of youngsters and a few adults rushed onto the pitch to congratulate the players.

The final whistle was the signal for a mob invasion and the players had to battle their way to the dressing-room.

Pat Liney, who made a wonderful penalty save at a vital time in the game, had to be rescued by four policemen and escorted tot he pavilion.

Meantime deafening roars rent the night air, stately gentlemen danced jigs; hats, scarves and what have you went up in the air. I had to plug my ears.

Just before the finish of the game a telephone flash to the Press box told that Aberdeen had beaten Rangers at Pittodrie. Down in the board room this information was greeted quietly. There was a feeling it could not be right. The Bob Shankly's telephone rang. The message confirmed that Aberdeen had won. Trainer Sammy Kean made a bee-line for the dressing room. The next we heard was a terrific roar from the players.

But that was a whisper to what happened in the ground. No one moved even after the pitch had been cleared of fans. they were waiting for news from Pittodrie over the tannoy, a gramophone record stopped and the crowd roared. A pause - then more music.

Sighs of despair "Rangers must have won" was the feeling." Bit still they stood. Then the music stopped and the announcer said "Attention please." But the way he said it was enough. The crowd roared at the jubilation in his voice.

"Here is the final result from Pittodrie." Again the tone of his voice told the tale. Another tremendous roar which half blotted out his announcement of the score.

They thought it was 1-0 Aberdeen, but no one worried.

They knew Aberdeen had won and that Dundee were two points ahead again and needed only one point at Perth on Saturday.
