|Match Pictures | Matches: 1933 - 1934 | 1933 Pictures|
- Two goals from Willie Mills and one from Irishman Paddy Moore were more than enough to secure the points for Aberdeen against a make-shift Celtic side.
- The absence of Kennaway, McGrory and Napier was too much for Celtic to bear and the score flattered them, such was the dominance of Aberdeen.
- Celtic after losing at Aberdeen are now in twelfth place, 13 points off the leaders. This is Celtic’s third defeat of the season.
- In England Tottenham Hotspur regain pole position and Portsmouth drop into second place after their 2-1 defeat at Leicester. Plymouth Argyle beat Bradford Park Avenue 4-1 with Eugene Melaniphy scoring a hat-trick.
- An unemployed march from the mid-Glamorgan mining valleys was stopped by the police, under the Chief Constable of Glamorgan, Captain Lionel Lindsay, before the marchers had completed the first stage of their journey to Aberkenfig, where they had hoped to camp last night in preparation for their march to Bridgend to-day, to interview the Guardians Committee and place before them a series of demands. Contingents from three valleys, numbering about seven hundred in all, took part in the march. There was no opportunity for them to meet until they reached Aberkenfig, and detachments of police were posted in each of the valleys to prevent them arriving at this point.

Aberdeen s well-deserved victory at home over the Celtic by three goals gave great delight to a crowd of over 15,000.
The heroes, of the match were the scorers, Mills, inside-left, and Moore, who played as well as ever, in the position of centre-forward. The two worked together in excellent co-operation. Moore's passes enabled Mills to score twice—once with a header—and the centre on his own was responsible for the third goal, obtained by a clever shot.
Wallace, the Celtic goalkeeper, showed, energy and smartness, and prevented the score against his side being much greater, and he was ably assisted in defence by Hogg, and McGonagle.
From start to finish, Aberdeen's aggressiveness was a feature. Even when they were three goals ahead there was no lagging, for they had evidently the idea that the best defence was continuous pressure on the Celtic goal.
McStay's efforts to get the Celtic forwards on the move failed repeatedly. Aberdeen's wing men, Benyon, and Gall, showed how well they could assist in an "all-in" forward line movement, and Falloon was ever watchful to see that the policy of aggression was maintained. The wonder was that Aberdeen's scoring was not greater. The Celtic goal had several narrow escapes.
