RANGERS have a great Scottish Cup record, winning the trophy on 33 occasions, one of which was in the 1991-92 season...

M. AITKEN (Glasgow) - Can you confirm that when Rangers won the Scottish Cup in 1991-92 they met Premier League clubs in each round.

Yes they did. They entered the cup in the third round and beat Aberdeen 1-0 at Pittodrie with a goal by McCoist. In the fourth round they beat Motherwell 2-1 at Ibrox and Mikhailichenko scored both goals.

Next came the quarter-finals and they beat St Johnstone 3-0 at McDiarmid Park with goals from McCoist, Gough and Hateley.

The semi-final was at Hampden against Celtic and McCoist scored the only goal of the game.

The cup final, also at Hampden, against Airdrie saw Rangers win 2-1 with goals by Hateley and McCoist.

A successful cup run with McCoist scoring in four of the the five ties.

DOUGLAS KENNEY (Bishopbriggs) - I was intrigued by the picture in your Now You Know page on April 3 of Celtic against Kokkola in 1970. Was there a reason why Celtic did not wear their traditional green and white hoops for this game?

Kokkola colours were green and they asked Celtic if they could change their strip for the match.

Celtic manager Jock Stein agreed and surprised all by wearing a brand new canary yellow outfit of shirt, shorts and socks.

This was kept secret until the teams took to the field for the match and was a surprise to the Celtic fans.

Many thanks to Celtic historian Pat Woods for this information.

ROBERT (Cathcart) - I read the other day that it was 77 years since the recording of the highest capacity ever at Hampden Park between Scotland and England. I'm pretty sure the second highest attendance was soon after that in a Scottish Cup final, could you please confirm if this is right and who the teams were in the final?

Yes, you are correct. After the record European attendance of 149,415 watched Scotland beat England 3-1 in the Home Championships on 17/4/1937, Celtic then played Aberdeen in the Scottish Cup final one week later on the 24th with 147,365 watching as Celtic beat Aberdeen 2-1.

The goals came from John Crum and Willie Buchan for Celtic with Matthew Armstrong scoring for Aberdeen.

This match not only is Hampden's second highest attended match but also holds the record attendance for a European club match.

JIMMY MALONE (Duntocher) - Dundee United lost six times in the Scottish Cup final before they finally won one. Can you tell me how many of these defeats featured the recently deceased Frank Kopel?

Frank played in the first two of United's cup final defeats in 1974 and 1981. In the first of those games they lost 3-0 to Celtic.

In the latter they were defeated 4-1 by Rangers, in a replay. The first game had ended in a goal-less draw.
