Match Report

Dreams of conquering the star-studded Old Trafford side evaporated thanks to three highly unfortunate goals. The task of pulling back a single goal deficit for tha fifth time over the two legs proved just too great.

Manchester United went ahead when Mark Hughes pounced on a Dave Narey clearance to hit a 12-yard snap shot past Hamish McAlpine. The equaliser came 13 minutes later. Paul Sturrock drifted over to the left and his cross was turned home by Davie Dodds. A tragic own goal by Gary McGinnis from a Strachan corner gave the Reds a half-time lead.

The second half was less than 15 minutes old when Paul Hegarty headed in our equaliser. The tie, evenly balanced now, swung Manchester United's way when Arnold Muhren's well-timed volley struck defender Gordon McQueen, the deflection beating Hamish McAlpine.
