- Souness was back in charge after his triple by-pass operation, but proud coach, Ronnie Moran, led the team out at Wembley: "I marched out with the side and it was a very proud moment for me. I've still got the video at home and it will be something for my grandchildren to watch in years to come. It was a great occasion for us and I introduced the side to the Duchess of Kent. I'd been to Wembley on a few occasions already, but I'd never played there. I missed out in 1965 when we won it for the first time."
- McMamanan hadn't played for a month after injuring his cartilage, but was voted man-of-the-match vs Sunderland.
