ArticlesMatch report from The Scotsman, 27th December 1920
[...] About 18,000 people saw the game at Paisley between St. Mirren and the Celtic, and the score in favour of the Parkhead team just about hits off their superiority. St. Mirren made one or two changes forward, Grieve and Halliday of the "A" team playing centre forward and outside right respectively. Both these players did well, especially against such a strong-going team. The Saints played a strenuous game in the first half, and Shaw was a trifle fortunate at times to clear his goal. McInally scored the Celtic's first goal in the first half, and Cassidy the other in the second. It was only be spasmodic rushes that St. Mirren reached the Celtic goal, but it was always a case of so far and no further, for McNair and McStay played a remarkably steady game. St. Mirren's best men were Lavery, Pringle and Thomson, and the Celtic were well served by their backs, Cringan, and Cassidy.
