  1. I’d be willing to bet the Jackie McQuillan “Celtic Pride” poster in Wee Jackie’s room is Jackie Dziekanowski after one of his four goals in the 5-4 “win” (Celtic lost on away goals) over Partizan Belgrade in the 1989 ECWC. The kit and the numbers on back match up,

    Another of the many lazy inaccuracies in the film that sticks in my mind was Rob McLean’s commentary in the lead up to kick-off mentioning that Rangers have “internationals from 9 different nations” in their line-up. This is true for the contemporary team of the time, but when the game starts and Rangers have possession the commentary goes something like “Campbell,,,to McDonald… to McGregor…”… not only the laziest cliche Scottish surnames imaginable but can only mean the “nine different nations” are Scotland and…. Northern Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Jamaica etc
