|Match Pictures | Matches: 1931 - 1932 | 1932 Pictures|
- Early strikes by Alec Thomson and Frank O'Donnell had Celtic in the driving seat, but in 20 minutes Black pulled one back for Morton. Celtic put on another three goals in response Frank O'Donnell, (2) and Alex Thomson being the scorers, before Black once again responded in 69 minutes, but this was simply the signal for Frank O'Donnell to score his fourth and his side's sixth goal. Black again countered in the last minute of play.
- Prompted by Charlie Napier, Frank O'Donnell and Alex Thomson had a field day, but Black of Morton was unfortunate, as not many centre-forwards will score a hat-trick against Celtic, and be on the losing side. Alexander Wilson, the Morton goalkeeper, was said to have played well, which tells us how one--sided this game was.
- There was a possibility that the league championship could have been settled on Saturday if Motherwell had won and Rangers lost, but Motherwell dropped a point at Firhill to Partick Thistle, and Rangers beat Cowdenbeath 7-1 at Central Park.
- Everton, the leaders of the English First Division extended their lead to 4 points by beating Grimsby while their nearest challengers Arsenal were drawing with Chelsea at Highbury in front of a 60,000 crowd.
- The Crown Prince of Germany has issued a manifesto urging voters to vote for Herr Hitler in the second ballot for President.

NINE GOALS AT PARKHEAD
Morton collapsed against the Celtic at Parkhead, Glasgow, after a run of success during the past few weeks, but they were unfortunate in meeting their opponents in something like their best form.
From the start the home side played with great confidence. They scored two goals early, and then Morton, through Black, reduced the leeway.
They added another couple. A fifth came shortly after the interval, but BIack scored once more for Morton.
Then O'Donnell scored a sixth for the Celtic, and his own fourth.
Morton's third and last goal was hotly protested against on the ground that the ball had been out of play, but it was allowed.
Morton were badly beaten and few of their players, with the exception of Wilson in goal, and Black did well.
The Celts moved with fine freedom and really, won as they liked. There was not a weakling in the side.
The attendance came to about 4,000.
The scorers were O’Donnell, (4), and A. Thomson, (2), for the Celtic, and Black had all Morton's goals.
