Champions of Scotland !

52 years ago today Kilmarnock Football Club defeated Heart of Midlothian 2-0 at Tynecastle to be crowned Scottish Football Champions. No team from outside a city has done this since - and may never again.

Killie went on to play in what is now called The Champions League in 1966-67, drawing with the mighty Real Madrid at Rugby Park. The following season they made it to the Semi Final of what is now known as The Europa League. Halcyon days indeed !
