Here are the highlights of the 1954 Scottish Cup win, our 17th success in the competition… The 1950’s will of course be remember for the Coronation Cup win and the 7-1 win in the League Cup Final in 1957 but this Double win was probably more significant for the supporters at the time.

Celtic were unchanged from the side that won the league at Easter Road but despite dominating play the Scottish Cup Final remained goalless at the interval.



For the first time in sixteen years since before the Second World War, Celtic are the League Champions!



And Celtic achieved this in a fine 3-0 defeat of Hibs at a packed Easter Road with 45,000 at least in the ground and a lot more having climbed the wall.

Winning the league at Easter Road would have been a lovely experience for the huge travelling Celtic support and the very next Saturday they were all there at Hampden for the Scottish Cup Final against Aberdeen.

The Celtic side was Bonnar, Haughney, Meechan, Evans, Stein, Peacock, Higgins, Fernie, Fallon, Tully and Mochan.

It was a great triumph for a team who had seemed to have no hope at the turn of the year and it said a great deal about the resolute captaincy of Jock Stein.
