Neither Celtic nor Hearts played on Saturday  10 April 1954, but Rangers did in the Scottish Cup semi-final and managed to lose 0-6 to Aberdeen, in what seemed like a protest by the players at the aged and increasingly tyrannical Bill Struth.

1954 was a great year for Celtic and their long suffering supporters.

However much Celtic fans may have enjoyed that, they themselves had not won anything yet, and on Wednesday 14 April Celtic went to the extremely dangerous ground of Brockville, Falkirk.



To their credit a depleted Hibs side without Gordon Smith and Laurie Reilly fought back, but although they enjoyed a fair amount of territorial possession, Celtic remained in control, Neil Mochan scored again and then with only minutes remaining, Johnny Higgins headed home a Willie Fernie cross to guarantee the flag as Celtic won 3-0.

Easter Road was heaving with well over 45,000 inside as Neil Mochan scored in 90 seconds to set Celtic on their way.

More will follow this evening on The Celtic Star…

A crowd of 22,000 saw a goal from Fallon, and then two from Neil Mochan as the half back line of Evans, Stein and Peacock kept a stranglehold on the game to the delight of the Celtic fans.
