I think it's a pivotal point in Celtic's history, really marked a change for us IMO. The change wasn't overnight but sometimes you need results as on that night to create the changes needed.

Destroyed Barnes, and led ultimately to obtaining MoN as our manager.
I'm not sure I agree with this. It was another disappointment in a season of disappointments. If we'd beaten Caley it wouldn't have changed the fact that Barnes and Kenny would be out on their arses that summer.

Considering a thread about a 3rd Division team is at the top of the page then it isn't that strange a topic. I don't understand the need to talk about either but this one is slightly more relevant.

I met one of the Caley Thistle directors of the time just last year. He said despite the fact they'd just pretty much humiliated us, Celtic were terrific with them that night. Basically handed over a lounge to them, gave them champagne and let them celebrate. Was probably our way of saying thanks for the opportunity to get rid of Barnes.

Guy is a big tim as well. Also mentioned that after the merger between Caley and Thistle, a lot of the former Inverness Thistle fans didn't want to know, as it was effectively a Caley takeover. Might explain why they still struggle for crowds.

A cup upset. These things happen every season. As others said it accelarated the departure of Barnes, which was a good thing for us.

Raith Rovers was worse.

Absolutely does explain it. I followed Thistle growing up, as did my pals, my dad, his pals. They all either defected to Ross County or Clach or chucked it altogether after the "merger".

It was a shampoo game, but upsets happen. They were an ambitious 1st Division team at the time, it was hardly the shock of the century.

I was there but the Semi Final replay defeat to Falkirk was far worse as were our 5 defeats at Hampden in the past 2 and a half years with the League Cup Final defeat to Kilmarnock being the one that really sickened me.

It was a major point in Celtics history. Given that we won the League Cup that year it is entirely possible that we could have went on to win the Scottish Cup as well - and we would have been stuck with Barnes. All if, buts and maybes but given the way the club bank-rolled Barnes & Dalglish and the ready-made excuse of Henrik's injury I think it would have taken a lot to shift Barnes at that time - thankfully the ICT result done the job.

effing pardon me, I saw it on youtube, couldn't remember the exact date but I was there, it was horrible, as I say there were grown men crying and everyone was having a shampooty time, and it did usher MoN in.

Basically we can respond to it now with "It brought us MoN in and we went to Seville, Wahay!" GIRFUYH


edit, never mind seville... 7 months from caley to the 6-2 game. THAT'S a turnaround

I agree - the Caley debacle was humiliating beyond belief but it got the powers-that-be at Celtic to get their heads out of their asses and sort out the managerial side of things at Celtic properly - ie employ a proven and charismatic manager. :rocker:

Raith Rovers was simply soul destroying. :brickwall: :boik: :cry:

I remember we were on a pretty patchy run of form, and on our way to the original Saturday fixture I opined that sticking three or four past this mob might turn things around. Was on the M74 when we heard it was off and had to turn around. :ffs:

Personally it was a positive. I knew Barnes couldn't survive it, and we ended up getting MON and years of hunskelping :)

Clyde away was worse.

Just another cup upset. Can't see why someone would want to bring it up just now, 13 year anniversary is a bit Sevco-ish, as its not as if it doesn't get mentioned a lot. We might have lost that night but we won overall. It was the catalyst for change at the club and that change brought about the downfall of the huns.

Living in Brighton at the time, forget why I was traveling in a taxi when the game was ending, but driver had radio on and was very chatty, quick to realize I was a Celtic man, he asked -

'You must be gutted mate?'

I replied, 'Naw, effin' delighted, Barnes will be gone in the mornin'
