Rangers manager Willie Waddell said "This was a Rangers
commitment, but we were not left on our own. Celtic rallied to our side
immediately. Bobby Charlton personnified the willingness of his fellow
footballers when he said "I'm thrilled to be asked. Just tell me when
you want me and where."
Celtic manager Jock Stein said "I would like to think there could
be no greater silent memorial to the disaster victims than the joining
together of the fans here at Hampden tonight to tumble the barriers which
have besmirched Scottish football so often in the past."
