Growing up in the 60s I remember that wonderful Celtic team that used to put Revie's Leeds in tgeir place in the European Cup. I think it was the semi final in Glasgow when over 136, 000 turned out to see the game. When Billy Bremner scored you coukd literally hear a pin drop. (Celtic won at Elland Road to reach their second European Cup final in three years) Going back to the first leg. Celtic reserves were playing on the Monday night before the midweek tie against Leeds and rumours swept the ground that Leeds had returned more than half their 10, 000 allocation. The reserves would be watched by thousands back then and the ground started to empty during the game as everyone rushed out to try to get more tickets that had gone on sale. This was the heyday of football in Scotland. Incidentally, the twenty highest attendances in British football have all been at the three msin Glasgow grounds. As has the highest attendance in a UEFA game.
