BBC Scotland are set to air, in full, Celtic’s title-winning match at home to St Johnstone in May 1998.

The programme showcasing the infamous match, in which Henrik Larsson and Harald Brattbakk scored to ruin Rangers’ hopes of winning ten-in-a-row, will start at 19:15 on the BBC Scotland channel and on the BBC Sport website.

Celtic supporters had endured a long, almost entirely barren 1990s up to that point, save for a Scottish Cup and League Cup win.


A rampant Rangers, backed by the millions of David Murray, had bought their way to a nine-in-a-row run and there were serious concerns they would perhaps even exceed Jock Stein’s legendary and original nine-in-a-row triumph with a tenth title.

However, Wim Jansen, Larsson and company had other ideas, narrowly leading the division heading into the St Johnstone fixture on the final day of the season.

An early Larsson cracker got the Bhoys off to a fantastic start but nerves persisted inside Celtic Park and it wasn’t until Brattbakk netted in the second half that delirium broke out in Paradise.

Nobody inside the stadium on that day will forget what they witnessed, but a refresher this weekend on our televisions sounds brilliant.
