CELTIC v RANGERS – This League match, which was looked upon as likely to decide the championship, was played at Celtic park before 14,000 spectators. The Rangers had their full team, but the Celts were minus the services of Reynolds and Maley. Dunbar played right back, while Gallagher filled the vacancy at half, and forward the Celts introduced Scott, of the Aidrieonians on the left with Campbell. Madden reappeared on the right with Blessington. The Rangers lost the toss, and the Celts, aided by the wind, made great progress. After many attempts Kelly scored the first goal of the match with a splendid shot. The Rangers almost equalised. The Celts strove strenuously to add to their score, but failed. At half-time the result was :- Celtic, two goals; Rangers, nil. McMahon scored the second goal. On crossing over the Celts were the first to attack, but the Rangers’ custodian saved again and again. After half-an-hour’s play M’Mahon scored a third goal for the Celts. A hard game ended :- Celtic three goals; Rangers, nothing.
Celtic Team:- Cullen, T. Dunbar, Doyle, Curran, Kelly, Gallacher, Madden, Blessington, McMahon, Scott, Campbell
Scorers:- McMahon, Campbell, Kelly
Rangers Team: Haddow, Gow, Drummond, Marshall, A. McCreadie, Mitchell, Davie, H. McCreadie, N. Kerr, McPherson, Barker
