The final against St Johnstone in 1969, which we won 1-0, will always be special because it brought my first winner's medal.

I didn't expect to play, but Jock Stein decided to drop Tam Gemmell. My big pal only found out when he came into the dressing-room to find me sitting in his seat pulling on his No.3 shorts.
