Celtic v Rangers : 10 Best Old Firm Derbies Ever

6. Celtic 5-0 Rangers [March 1925]

Celtic’s 5-0 success in 1925 is the biggest score in a Scottish Cup Old firm game. By that point, the trophy had eluded the Ibrox side for 22 years and the manner of this result showed they still had some way to go to get it back. Rangers actually had a good first 20 minutes but the first of three goals from Jimmy McGrory set Celtic on their way soon after. Played in front of a then Scottish record attendance of 101,700, Adam McLean and Alec Thomson completed the scoring.


5. Rangers 1-0 Celtic [March 1992]

It was the Scottish Cup semi-final of 1992. This win was remarkable for the Rangers in the sense they played most of the match with just 10 men. With only six minutes gone, left-back David Robertson was shown a straight red card by referee Andrew Waddell for a bodycheck on Joe Miller deep in Celtic’s half. The dismissal took Robertson by surprise as much as anyone, with the defender anticipating a yellow card instead, and his departure left Rangers on the back foot.

Despite that, the Rangers rallied and went in front through Ally McCoist shortly before half-time then turned in a solid defensive display to keep their 1-0 lead.


4. Celtic 4-0 Rangers [1969 ]

Despite Celtic already winning the league and League Cup in the previous four weeks, Rangers were strong favourites when the sides met in the 1969 Scottish Cup final, largely due to the fact their opponents were missing several key players.

Billy McNeill’s early header set a tone though and two goals just before half-time from George Connelly and Bobby Lennox killed the game. Stevie Chalmers added a fourth to round off a handsome success as Jock Stein led his team to a domestic treble for the second time in just three seasons.
