LIVERPOOL 5 SCOTLAND 1; HEARTS Square Up to Liverpool Tomorrow Night Knowing the Weight of History and the Might of the English Premiership Is against Them. the Anfield Side Have Previously Faced Scottish Opposition Six Times in Europe and Have Tasted Defeat Only Once. Here, Record Sport Takes a Trip Down Memory Lane and Looks Back at the Reds' Battle of Britain Clashes


1966 - CUP WINNERS CUP SEMI-FINAL CELTIC 1 LIVERPOOL 0 LIVERPOOL 2 CELTIC 0 (LIVERPOOL WIN 2-1 ON AGGREGATE) TWO of Scotland's greatest managers, Bill Shankly and Jock Stein, pitted their wits against each other in the last four of the Cup Winners Cup.

And while Stein would lead Celtic to European Cup glory in Lisbon 12 months later he had to settle for second best this time against his Liverpool counterpart.

Celtic headed to Merseyside with a one-goal advantage after Bobby Lennox scored in front of a 76,000 crowd at Parkhead.

But the second leg was mired in controversy when Lennox had a last-minute strike - which would have taken Celtic through to the final on away goals and looked perfectly legitimate - ruled out for offside.

The Celtic supporters didn't take the decision too well and as bottles started raining down on the Anfield pitch, right, Shankly turned to Stein and said: "Jock, do you want your share of the gate money or shall we just return the empties?" Liverpool were back in Glasgow for the Final which was played at Hampden but went down 2-1 to Borussia Dortmund after extra time.

CELTIC 2 LIVERPOOL 2 LIVERPOOL 0 CELTIC 0 (2-2 LIVERPOOL GO THROUGH ON AWAY GOALS) THE brilliance of Steve McManaman proved to be the difference between the sides.

In the first game Michael Owen scored early on for the Reds to silence a capacity Parkhead crowd.

But Celtic hauled themselves back into the game thanks to second-half strikes from Simon Donnelly and Jackie McNamara.

Wim Jansen's side looked set for a victory only for McManaman, left, to score with virtually the last kick of the game.

Receiving the ball 30 yards inside his own half, the England winger went past half the Celtic team. He waltzed all the way to the edge of the box before firing home.

It was a stunning equaliser and with the second leg a 0-0 draw at Anfield that strike meant Liverpool moved into the second round.

1997 - UEFA CUP FIRST ROUND 1970 - UEFA CUP LAST 16 HIBS 0 LIVERPOOL 1 LIVERPOOL 2 HIBS 0 (LIVERPOOL WIN 3-0 ON AGGREGATE) HIBS were European regulars for nine straight seasons in the 1960s and 70s and had hopes of making an impact in the UEFA Cup.

But after disposing of Malmo and Vitoria Guimaraes they were still no match for the Reds.

John Toshack bagged the only goal at Easter Road and the second leg at Anfield was a formality as Steve Heighway, above, and Phil Boersma scored to ease Liverpool into the last eight.

HIBS 1 LIVERPOOL 0 LIVERPOOL 3 HIBS 1 (LIVERPOOL WIN 3-2 ON AGGREGATE) HIBS squared up to Liverpool for the second time in five years and while they fared much better this time the outcome was the same.
