The first 1969 Scottish League Cup Final was played on 5 April 1969 at Hampden Park in Glasgow and was the final of the 23rd Scottish League Cup competition. The final was contested by Hibernian and Celtic. Celtic won a one-sided match by 6–2, with Bobby Lennox scoring a hat-trick. Bertie Auld, Jim Craig and Willie Wallace scored Celtic's other goals, while Jimmy O'Rourke and Eric Stevenson scored for Hibs.
