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.[1] Bertie Auld, Jim Craig and Willie Wallace scored Celtic's other goals, while Jimmy O'Rourke and Eric Stevenson scored for Hibs.

The Final was originally scheduled for 28 October 1968, but was postponed until April because a fire destroyed part of the south stand at Hampden Park.[2]
