Kilmarnock, Raith, Airdrie and QOS away were all great performances.
We seemed to change it after a 1-0 home defeat to E Fife, who in fairness we battered, and the magic never really returned.
With Danny McGrain at right back for much of it. Not sure what had happened to Kevin McKee at that point. We used to regularly pump Airdrie at Broomfield - 0-4, 0-3 & 1-4 with another 1-2 when we'd already wrapped up the first title in 1986. And up until about 1984 we hadn't won there since the thirties. The big turning point I remember is getting battered 1-5 at home to Meadowbank. We limped over the line after that, and only got there thanks to Lambie signing Colin Harris.
