Back at the turn of the century Martin O’Neill took his champions to , earlier in the season the hoops had ‘came unstuck’ losing 5-1 to the reigning champions.

After a quiet first half saved their best for the visiting in the . Lubo Moravcik scored twice with the icing on the cake supplied by Henrik with his 50th goal of the season..

It was more than a decade before the derby again fell on April 29. Again Celtic were the champions, again the scoreline was 3-0 on a day that no Celtic fan will ever forget.

More recently there has been two five goal hammerings dished out with ’ side in their pomp.

In 2017, six days after winning a semi-final, the hoops hit five at Ibrox with each goal carrying a magic of its own- topped off by the greatest strike of Mikael Lustig’s career.

Rolling the clock forward there was a title to be won in 2018. Odsonne Edouard wasn’t messing about, Lustig borrowed a police hat with the biggest surprise being that the scoreline was kept down to five.

Who knows what future joy April 29 has in store for ?
