Especially after George Best had an earlier goal chalked off after he famously kicked the ball out of Gordon Banks' hands. Best was on top form dazzling again here in Glasgow and the side managed a 1-0 win here thanks to a 14th minute John Greig own goal. O'Kane played the full match at the back picking up his 5th cap.

O'Kane struggled with injuries and was forced to retire at the age of only 28 in '76 but did manage to represent his country 20 times in total.
