Airdrie 0-5 Dundee, League Cup 26th Aug 1961
After the impressive victory over Falkirk three days earlier, Dundee picked up where they left off by notching a 5-0 win over Airdrie in the League Cup. Gilzean (2), Cousin, Smith and Penman put the West of Scotland side to the sword with Rangers easily casting aside Thirds in the group's other match. The results left Thirds and Airdrie out of the tournament and with Dundee hanging on to faint hopes of progression- being four points behind with only two left to play. The next game in the tournament was Rangers at Dens in what promised to be another great showdown between the two sides.
