The Old Firm.

Tommorrows old firm game at Ibrox stadium between Rangers an Celtic will have added poignance especially for Rangers fans as it is also the 40th anniversary of the second Ibrox disaster when 66 fans were killed at the end of an old firm match on the 2nd January 1971 as 100,000 fans were in the process of leaving the ground.

We can only hope that the rivalry between the two sets of fans can be put aside during the minutes silence tomorrow and that Celtic fans will show due respect to the memory of those killed fourty years ago.

...and they did!! good for them.

Shock result though, 2 - 0 to Celtic but the Tangers have 2 games in hand.
