It was the first time they have ever won a league game at Parkhead, and they have now done the double over the Old Firm having beaten Rangers in the Scottish Communities League Cup win at Ibrox last month.

Butcher, whose team were hammered 5-1 at home to Motherwell last week, said: "To win as a manager for the first time and to beat both Glasgow clubs in the same season on their own patches and keep clean sheets, is fantastic.

"We have created history all the time and we intend to keep on doing that. We got rid of last week very quickly, they are a great bunch of lads."

Billy McKay, who scored the only goal of the game, said: "It was great for me to get the winner. Barca came here and they are probably the best team in the world and didn't get a result but we stuck to our task and got the win.

"I hit the bar and then it got cleared off the line after that. We have lost a few late goals so it was great to hang on and grind it out.

"We had a plan to frustrate them, keep our shape and it worked."

lassic management. Build them up and then knock them back. Raise expectations and then dampen them. Create a dynamic where by you demand the most from your team, but where the team are given room to manoeuvre unexpected or unwanted results. Classy work by Van Gaal, he really reminds me a lot of me. A smart cookie, make no doubt.
