ArticlesMatch report from The Scotsman, 13th December 1920
[...] The 30,000 spectators present at the Celtic-Partick Thistle encounter at Celtic Park saw a game worth going to see. The teams were evenly matched, and the verdict hung in the balancepractically the whole ninety minutes. Fifteen minutes after the start the Celtic were awarded a penalty kick for an infringement against McInally. McStay struck the bar from the spot, but Gallagher, catching the ball on the rebound, drove it into the net. In the second half, the Thistle made a strong effort to draw level, but could not get the better of Celtic's strong defence. McMenemy made his first appearance against his old club, and was the Thistle's best forward until he retired ten minutes from the finish knowing to a leg injury.
