Spot on Jaggernaut, but help me out. Where/who against? I can't recognise that ground.

It's Crusaders apparently

Back when strips, shorts and socks were exactly just that, and not plastered with advertising.

Tommy Rae on the ball. Maybe Johnny Flanagan the other Jag? Craig & Clark for Celtic. Guessing 1967  or '68. 

Look how far the ref is behind play!

That's Seaview for sure. That stand is now at Taylors Avenue, home of Carrick Rangers. As Murphys Law insists I (the only Jags fan in NI at that time) was in England during that summer and missed the match. I don't recognise that strip as Crusaders, nor do I recognise either the keeper or defender. I wonder did Distillery ("the Whites") play their match at Seaview. They shared the ground for a few seasons after Grosvenor Park was burned down in the early days of our crazy times. Though this match was just pre troubles.

Is that the ref or linesman ?  But as you say - ref is nowhere in sight

Can only find 3 games v Celtic at home where Rae and Flanagan played together. Take your pick 1-4, 1-5 or 1-5!

I went for 69-70, as we continued to wear that high, round neck version into the following (promotion) season.

The keeper is Billie Ritchie, and the defenders (l to r) are Gray, McKinnon and Campbell. Maybe this is Ritchie's 60th minute save, mentioned at the end of the match report.

Shame he didn't make too many such saves for us in the league campaign that followed! I was glad to see the back of him.
