1932-11-19: Celtic 3-0 Cowdenbeath, League Division 1
|Match Pictures | Matches: 1932 - 1933 | 1933 Pictures|
- Penalty goals in 38 and 43 minutes by Charlie Napier and a Jimmy McGrory goal seven minutes after the break was enough to see Celtic home and hosed.
- Cowdenbeath couldn't match Celtic in a game played in dense fog. The interest of the press was taken by Charles McCartney, Cowdenbeath's signing from Morton and Tom Russell, a full-back, and another debutant who would soon make his way to Rangers, while Alex Venters, a forward who would shortly attract Ibrox attention, went unnoticed.
- Scottish League First Division leaders, Rangers, Motherwell, Aberdeen, Heart of Midlothian and Hamilton Academicals were all winners on Saturday.
- In England, Aston Villa beat the Arsenal at Birmingham by five goals to three. These two teams are now equal at the top of the English League with Derby County in third place.
- Japan's observations on the Lytton Commission's report constitute an emphatic rejection of the Commission's proposal for international control of the new State of Manchukuo (Manchuria.) A memorandum containing the observations was issued yesterday, and to-day at Geneva the Council of the League of Nations will debate the issue. Yesterday the Chinese spokesman at Geneva declared that he felt assured that the League would have the courage to take decisions and see them carried into effect.

CELTIC GET TWO PENALTY GOALS
Considerable interest was displayed in the visit of Cowdenbeath to Parkhead, Glasgow, in view of the debut of McCartney, the old Morton player, at outside left in the Fife team. Another attraction was Russell, who was also making his first appearance for Cowdenbeath this season.
The Fifers made a good show at the start, and if Hamill had taken advantage of a nice, cross by McCartney they might have been on the lead. The former Morton player was dangerous on several occasions, and Kennaway had to give of his best to stop one shot in particular.
Napier was prominent in the open for the Celtic, but his finishing left much to be desired, and several fine efforts by McGrory were well held by Crosskey.
Each side had “penalty" claims turned down by the referee, but at seven minutes from the interval a. "spot kick" was awarded the Celtic, which Napier converted.
Just a few minutes later another penalty kick was given the home side, which appeared a severe punishment, and again Napier counted.
Five minutes after the resumption McGrory scored a clever goal, and thereafter the Celts had most of the play, although Cowdenbeath played pluckily.
Fog spoiled the game to a considerable extent. On the play the margin in favour of the Celtic was too great. The Fifers put up a good fight.
The attendance would be about 8,000.
