- Jimmy McGrory opened the scoring in 10 minutes in this match in which Lochee-born James Cameron made his debut in the problematic outside-left berth for Celtic. Cameron scored, while his opposition debutant Paddy Moore, acquitted himself well in a losing side, which included former Celtic favourite Adam McLean. Charlie Napier scored from the penalty spot in 89 minutes.
- A better day for the start of the football season in Scotland could hardly have been chosen. It was, indeed, too summerlike on Saturday for so strenuous a game though there was a cooling breeze to temper the heat. There was a full programme of League engagements. Generally, the attendances were fairly good, and in the First Division series ranged from 25,000 at Paisley to 2500 at Cowdenbeath. In the way of results, it was an eventful day, and several things happened which were not expected. Of real surprises there were many. Most notable of all was the defeat of the Rangers at Paisley by St Mirren. Of the 6 Glasgow clubs Celtic were the only winners.
- In the Second Division, Raith Rovers played strongly, and won by 9-1. Their opponents, King’s Park were handicapped by the loss of a player. Both the relegated clubs of last season, Leith Athletic and Dundee United, were defeated. Of the Edinburgh four in the Second Division, the Hibernians and St Bernard’s were victors, and Edinburgh City, and Leith Athletic were beaten.
- Demands that he should be appointed Chancellor of the Reich and that the most important posts in the Cabinet should be given to his nominees were put forward by Herr Hitler, leader of the German Nazis, during a dramatic interview with President von Hindenburg. The aged President of the Republic, however, emphatically rejected Hitler's programme, and the hopes of the Nazi party of achieving power were thus again dashed.
- Many Spanish grandees, Generals, officers, and ex-officers have been taken into custody following the abortive Monarchist revolt led by General Jose Sanjuro. At a ceremony in Madrid the President of the Republic presented decorations to numerous troops and police who remained loyal to the present regime.

CELTIC'S OPENING SUCCESS
Nearly 20,000 were present at Parkhead, Glasgow, for the Celtic-Aberdeen game.
The Celtic had one change only from what was regarded as their regular eleven last season, Cameron, the former Dundee United player, coming in at outside left forward.
In place of Yorston, now with Sunderland, Aberdeen played Moore, from the Shamrock Rovers, Dublin, a youth built on similar lines to Yorston.
Both newcomers acquitted themselves well. The Celtic recruit scored a goal. The Celtic were the superior side throughout, even if they did not display that confidence and snap which distinguished their play at the beginning of last season.
Aberdeen gave one the impression that they had not developed a proper understanding, but they seemed a likely enough lot. The home team had the better of the play in the early stages, and McGrory opened the scoring with a characteristic effort. Aberdeen fought back pluckily, and prevented the opposition increasing their lead in the first half.
The intense heat was no doubt responsible for the slack play after the interval. The Celtic continued to have the advantage, and added two goals, one by Cameron, a fine effort, and another from a penalty kick by Napier.
The home defence were seldom in real trouble except on a few occasions, when Moore's unorthodox methods almost upset them. Wilson was the Celtic's best, half-back. McGrory appears to have quite recovered from his injury of last season, and A. Thomson and Cameron did well.
Moore and McLean were the most dangerous of the Aberdeen forwards. Falloon their best half, and the backs and goalkeeper did good work.
