The 1986 Scottish League Cup Final was played on 26 October 1986, at Hampden Park in Glasgow and was the final of the 41st Scottish League Cup competition. The final was contested by Rangers and Celtic. Rangers won the match 2–1, thanks to goals from Davie Cooper and Ian Durrant. In the aftermath of Mo Johnston's dismissal, Tony Shepherd was shown a red card by referee David Syme, who thought he'd been struck by Shepherd. The Linesman on the bench side confirmed that it was a coin thrown from the crowd that had in fact hit him, and Shepherd's red card was immediately retracted.
