ON October 24, 1970, a 16-year-old Derek Johnstone scored the only goal of the League Cup final against Celtic.

The striker had only made his Rangers debut the previous month in a win over Cowdenbeath but he repaid the faith of Willie Waddell and Jock Wallace in stunning fashion as Jock Stein's side were defeated.

It was the first medal of Johnstone's career and he would go on to win the European Cup Winners' Cup in Barcelona and two domestic Trebles with the Light Blues.


DJ recalls that famous afternoon in an exclusive interview with Herald and Times Sport as he remembers the day that set him on the road to legendary status at Ibrox.

And here we look back at some pictures from Hampden to mark the 50th anniversary of one of Scottish football's most iconic moments.
