The English clubs got banned from Europe for 5 years after the Heysel Disaster in 1985.

During the ban,
The English Champions and the Scottish Champions competed in the Dubai cup, which lasted only 3 years and all games were decided by a penalty shootout.

In the first match in the 1986/ 87 season,
Celtic conceded a last minute equaliser to Liverpool's Scottish player Alan Hansen.
Liverpool won 4-2 on penalty kicks.

The following season,
Rangers scored 2 goals in the last 10 minutes to draw 2-2 with Everton.
Rangers won 8-7 on penalties.

The last season,
Celtic got our revenge on Liverpool, when we won this time 4-2 on penalties after another 1-1 draw.
That match in Dubai was only 9 days before the Hillsborough Disaster in April 1989.

I remember playing Liverpool at parkhead after Hillsborough, to raise money for the victims families.

We had some Liverpool fans on our supporters bus from springburn, that day.

{Ed001's Note - it was Liverpool's first game after Hillsborough.}

It was an emotional day for everyone Ed. I remember everyone throwing money onto the track and the ball boys going round with buckets picking it up. I also recall dalglish coming on and scoring.

Was one of the few times I did not care about getting beat. Was more about showing solidarity with our socialist brothers from Liverpool under difficult circumstances.

I have a vivid memory of our fans chanting "Liverpool" and a moving rendition of you'll never walk alone.

Thankfully the 97 eventually got some justice and we got to see thatcher die and descend to hell.

{Ed001's Note - it was a very emotional day. It was much needed.}

I was in the Main Stand that day.
There were Liverpool fans all around the ground.
It was a very emotional day.

We went to Hampden the day after Hillsborough and I don’t think anybody was interested because everyone was still in shock.

{Ed001's Note - if I remember correctly it was on TV as well?}

I don't recall if it was on tv as I was at the game but buzz may remember.

I was in the jungle that day buzz and like you say, there were Liverpool fans mixed in with the Celtic fans all round the stadium.

{Ed001's Note - there was no segregation, just like there should be. Football tribalism has only got worse due to the fans being split.}

I don’t recall neither WeeJoe because I was at the game.
I just remember Liverpool destroyed us.

Both clubs went on to win their FA cup finals against their City Rivals the following month.

I will never forget that night either, as although we got thrashed, it was all about compassion and respect for that terrible day.

11 Feb 2024 09:47:17
There where fans from other scottish teams dotted around stadium that day as well . didn't gerry Marsden do you'll never walk alone in the centre circle that day?

Ed, segregation wasn't the case in the Disaster game. Me and my dad were in amongst that lot. lol.

I thought there was segregation after the Ibrox 1971 . I was behind the goal that Rangers scored the last minute equaliser. I thought that it was all Celtic supporters in that end.

CC, my uncle worked with the Sunday Post and was told he wasn't needed for that game. He went and bought tickets for him and his brother - both were Protestatnts and the tickets were for the Copland Road end. He was later asked to cover the game and he gave me and my dad the two tickets.
