What was the most memorable game you were ever involved in between Celtic and St Mirren?

That is an easy one, it was the 1986 Premier League decider when Celtic needed to beat St Mirren heavily at Love Street and hope that Hearts slipped up at Dundee.

Thankfully we won 5-0 and Albert Kidd worked his magic with a double at Dens Park for the Dark Blues and we came from behind to be crowned champions.

That was probably the most dramatic day of my managerial career and one I will never forget.

If you have a question for Davie, just email him at and we'll print the answer alongside the question.
