Glasgow was revelling in its status as European city of culture, Germany was re-unified, Gazza wept buckets at the World Cup - and St Mirren beat Celtic 3-0 at Parkhead.
The Paisley side have not enjoyed a victory in the east end of Glasgow since and after just 15 minutes of this encounter the seeds of another defeat were sown. It's now 22 years and counting and there is a further significance to that number which won't make pleasant reading for yersterday's visiting fans. During Danny Lennon's 30-month stint in charge, the aggregate scoreline reads Celtic 22 St Mirren 0.
