21st November 1981 Celtic 3 Rangers 3
On this day in 1981, 48,600 were inside Celtic Park for the 2nd Old Firm contest of the season, Celtic having won the opening encounter 2-0 at Ibrox.
Pat Bonner was in the Celtic goal; the back four was Davie Moyes, Tom McAdam, Roy Aitken and Mark Reid; Dom Sullivan, Murdo Mcleod and Mike Conroy made up the midfield; with Davie Provan, Frank McGarvey and George McCluskey as the strike force.
The crowd wanted to see some action and in the first 21 minutes of the match, they certainly got plenty of it. Tom McAdam got Celtic off to a great start in 3 minutes, touching a Davie Moyes header past Peter McCloy in the Rangers goal. Gordon Dalziel pulled one back two minutes later but Frank McGarvey soon made it 2-1, sending a powerful header into the roof of the net, again from a Moyes cross in the 10th minute.
Rangers equalised again, this time from Jim Bett in the 20th minute, then John McDonald put Rangers 3-2 ahead in 21 minutes, a score which stayed the same till the interval. Six minutes after the break, though, Moyes nodded down a cross by Davie Provan and Murdo McLeod thundered a tremendous drive past McCloy to make it 3-3, a result which kept Celtic top of the table.
