1933-04-22: Dundee 3-0 Celtic, League Division 1
|Match Pictures | Matches:1932 - 1933 |1933 Pictures|
- An under-strength Celtic side were well beaten at Dundee. Andrew Miller, James Robertson, and H. Smith, were the goalscorers for Dundee.
- One matter was definitely settled on Saturday, and that was that Morton will be deposed along with East Stirlingshire. They lost at Falkirk, and though, the Airdrieonians were also beaten the latter could afford to drop points, provided Morton were in the same position. The rivals for promotion, along with the Hibernians—Queen of the South and Dunfermline Athletic—are still uncertain as to their fate. Both won their games, and it will depend now on what happens in the King's Park-Dunfermline Athletic match as to whether Dumfries or the Fife town is to have First Division football next season.
- The Arsenal, after beating Chelsea 3-1 in front of 74,000 have won the English League championship, and Stoke City are almost certain to be promoted. It is an open question yet who will be deposed from the First Division. There are still six clubs in the running for that fate with Blackpool bottom of the pile.

SCOTTISH CUP WINNERS WELL BEATEN
A Celtic team, weakened by the absence of Kennaway, Geatons, McGrory, and Napier, were well beaten by Dundee at Dundee, before 8,000 spectators.
For the first twenty minutes Dundee stormed the Celtic goal in great style to become three goals up.
The Celtic's reprisals were weak, and they rarely looked like scoring, thanks largely to a rock-like Dundee defence.
Wallace, the Celtic goalkeeper, was not the safest of custodians, but it is doubtful whether the presence of Kennaway would have seriously affected Dundee's score. The home forwards were in sparkling form.
In the second half, the Celtic defence improved, but the forwards could make little progress. Their one effort of note was a powerful drive by A, Thomson, which Marsh was forced to turn round the post at the expense of a corner.
Dundee opened the scoring soon after the start, when Miller, headed in a lob from Symon. A few minutes later Robertson broke away to score with a fine shot from twenty yards, and with twenty minutes gone Smith got a goal following a shot by Troup. Dundee kept up the pressure until half-time, and might have gone still further ahead.
Play deteriorated in the second period, which provided few thrills. Troup and Robertson were the star Dundee forwards, who were well supported by the half-backs. The defence made few mistakes.
The Celtic side gave a poor showing, and only A. Thomson, Wilson, and McStay were at all impressive.
