|Match Pictures | Matches: 1929 - 1930 | 1930 Pictures|
- Celtic's new-boy Willie Cook got the plaudits, but old-bhoy John McMenemy got the prizes as he scored in just 5 minutes and starred in a comfortable Motherwell victory. Centre-forward Willie Dowall had two, and Englishman Bobby Ferrier was the other scorer for Motherwell.
- In the English League competition Derby County lost the lead they snatched last week. They could only draw with Manchester United. Sheffield Wednesday had little difficulty in taking both points from the lowly Newcastle, and thereby gained championship parity with Derby.
- Glasgow Street Outrage. A stabbing affair, in which a young man lost his life, occurred in the Drygate, Glasgow, last night. The victim was Alexander McLelland, nineteen years of age, who resided at 137 Drygate. Few facts are available concerning the outrage, but it is surmised that the assailants were members of a Calton gang.

CELTIC’S POOR DISPLAY.
Celtic made a poor show at Parkhead, Motherwell being the superior team in all departments, saving that of right back, Cook, the young Port-Glasgow defender, made a splendid show, and was the most outstanding defender on view.
Motherwell opened the scoring in the first minutes of the game, McMenemy scoring from the rebound of Ferrier's shot from the cross-bar. This gave the visitors encouragement, and they overplayed Celtic, scoring their second before the half-hour had gone, through Dowall.
Celtic's right wing was the only menace to the visitors' defence, but the finishing was bad. The home team made a better show in the early stages of the second half, but Motherwell added to their score through a bad clearance by McGonagle, when McMenemy took advantage of it and placed to Murdoch. The latter crossed to Ferrier for the winger to score.
Murdoch shortly afterwards again beat McGonagle, and laid an easy opening for Dowall to score Motherwell's fourth.
Motherwell won easily, but it must be said that nothing came off for Celtic, even if they did not play well. The home team were far below their usual form, their middlemen being very poor, and McGonagle very erratic. Only the right wingers played to form, the others being poor, and Hughes particularly weak.
Motherwell played a fine game, and they carried no passengers, although their left wing was well attended to by Cook.
The attendance was 8,000.
