Trophies: Scottish First Division, Scottish Cup, Scottish League Cup, Glasgow Cup, European Cup.

League Play: Won by 3 points over Rangers, with a +78 GD

Hoops fans are no doubt incredibly familiar with the Lisbon Lions of 1967. The only team to complete a European quintuple, they took home trophies from the Scottish Football League, the Scottish Cup, the Scottish League Cup, the Glasgow Cup and culminated the season in their 2-1 win over Inter Milan in the club’s first and only European Championship (as well as the first team from the British Isles to do so). Winning the league with a +78 goal differential, the club truly dominated play suffering only two defeats (both 3-2 to Dundee United). In the Glasgow Cup, they carried a 16-0 goal differential over three matches against Rangers, Queen’s Park, and Partick Thistle. The squad also became one of only two that have won the European Championship with a team consisting of all local players.
