1986 saw a return to glory for the fans, so it seemed. In one week Hearts could achieve the double. Following a 31-match unbeaten run, Hearts had to go to Dundee and nearest challengers Celtic were at St Mirren. A seven-goal turnaround was needed for Hearts to throw away the championship. Until the final seven minutes Hearts were going to be champions once more. Albert Kidd scored twice for Dundee in the last seven minutes, and Celtic won at St Mirren (who incidentally had a new £1m stand the next season) by five goals to nil. Hearts were shattered by this and went on to lose the Scottish cup final 3-0 to Aberdeen.
