McCloy the St. Mirren goalkeeper is seen saving from the Celtic forwards, McGrory and O'Donnell.
The trial was a sequel to an attack made by a mob, in Bridgeton Cross Station on March 3, on a train which was conveying passengers from Maryhill and Possil to Paisley, where the Celtic Football Club were playing St. Mirren F.C.
The accused, John Traquair, was charged with mobbing, rioting, and assault. It was alleged that being a member of a gang known as the "Billy Boys," or by some other name or names, he did, on March 3., at Bridgeton Cross Station, form part of a riotous mob and invade a compartment of a railway carriage with intent to assault passengers therein.
The charge also alleged that he assaulted John McVey, 277 Saracen Street, by striking him on the arm with a razor or other sharp instrument to the effusion of blood, and that he also assaulted Ranzo Buonaccorsi, 130 Barloch Street, Possilpark.
He was found guilty of all the charges, and sentenced to four years' penal servitude.
