ArticlesMatch report from The Scotsman, 23rd August 1920
The Celtic scrambled through, and took both points from the Albion Rovers at Coatbridge, where 17,000 spectators were present. The game was fast and at times furious, but devoid of any sustained brilliance on either side. In comparison with old Celtic teams, Saturday's lot have a great deal to learn, and even veteran McNair was often at fault before the dash of Hillhouse and James White, who composed the Rovers' best wing. The only goal of the game fell to McMaster, from a scramble following a free kick. McInally and McLean were always keen, but the Celtic's attack did not over-tax the Rovers' rear ranks. Their middle line, McStay and Shaw, sustained their best traditions. The Rovers had fully as much of the play, but their wings neglected Reid, else the story might have been different, for the old Rangers man showed a lot of his old dash. Duncan, Ford, and Keir were the mainstay of the Rovers' defence, which, on the whole, was quite equal to that of the Parkhead lot. A draw would better have represented the worth of a moderate game.
