29th February Celtic 5 St Mirren 1 1960
Naturally enough, not too many Celtic matches have ever taken place on 29th February. One of the most memorable, though, was played on this day in 1960, when Celtic and St Mirren met in the 2nd replay of a 2nd round Scottish Cup tie at Parkhead.
The first game – at Love Street – had finished one-all; the first replay at Celtic Park was a high-scoring encounter, finishing four-apiece, the Bhoys’ goals coming from Neil Mochan (2) and John Divers (2).
A toss of the coin meant that the second replay would take place at Parkhead again and 51,000 packed in hoping to see some more goals.
They were not to be disappointed. Celtic ran riot, winning the match by five goals to one with all five coming from Neil Mochan, in 7, 12 (pen), 40, 54 and 81 minutes.
