The Sunday Post (Dundee) - - Post Match -

Celtic could do with a shock win over Bay­ern Mu­nich on Tues­day night to im­prove their hopes of Cham­pi­ons League foot­ball after Christ­mas.

The Ger­mans aren’t un­ac­cus­tomed to fly­ing home from Scot­land after an un­ex­pected de­feat, as back in Fe­bru­ary, 1989, they trav­elled to Tynecas­tle to face Hearts in a UEFA Cup tie.

The Jam­bos had al­ready beaten St Patrick’s Ath­letic, Aus­tria Vi­enna and Velez Mostar to reach the quar­ter-fi­nals.

26,294 packed Tynecas­tle for the tie, de­spite the match be­ing shown live on TV, some­thing which earned Hearts owner, Wal­lace Mercer, a hefty SFA fine as he’d not sought per­mis­sion to broad­cast the match!

Iain Fer­gu­son scored the only goal, a rasp­ing 25-yarder from Tosh McKin­lay’s short free-kick.

Jambo joy was short-lived, how­ever, as Bay­ern won the re­turn in Mu­nich 2-0.
