Re: A victim of 'retain and transfer'

I think Rene Moller was retained by Hearts until 1976 - about 6 years after leaving.

Re: Back in 1963

Was Alistair Dewar not sacked after Hearts beat Celtic 4-1 in 1972 for being too enthusiastic or at least reprimanded or is my memory hazy?

Re: Celtic's 'Home' Games At Hampden...But Why?

As I recall, there was a safety issue with the Parkhead stand. Celtic also played Arbroath [3-3] at Hampden in the League Cup.

John McFarlane

According to John Litster, there was a John McFarlane who played 16 games and scoring 12 goals in 1968-69 - all before the end of October before he was released to join Airdrie :shock: . I can't find him anywhere else. Can anyone help identify him?
