1938-03-05: Celtic 1-2 Kilmarnock, Scottish Cup
|Match Pictures | Matches: 1937 - 1938 | 1938 Pictures|
- The big crowd at Parkhead saw Kilmarnock take the lead when George Reid passed the ball to Felix McGrogan to score. Then Reid repeated the service for Alan Collins to score Kilmarnock's second and though MacDonald pulled one back from the penalty spot Celtic were out of the cup and Kilmarnock had won a famous victory against the odds.
- Celtic’s cup tie topped the attendances with 39,389 fans bringing receipts of £1,589 and East Fife set a record attendance at Bay View where 17,000 watched their drawn match with Aberdeen.
- Rubbing salt into Celtic’s wounds following their defeat by Kilmarnock was the fact that they had recently provided Kilmarnock with a player (George Reid on loan) who was part of a forward line that excelled against Celtic, and a manager (Jimmy McGrory).
- In the English Cup 75,500 watched Aston Villa beat Manchester City and in the League Blackpool beat Portsmouth thanks to goals from Scots and ex-Celts, O’Donnell and Buchan.
- The biggest naval engagement of the Spanish Civil War took place today during which the Nationalist cruiser Canarias was sunk by a torpedo from Republican warships in the Mediterranean off Cape Palos, Murcia, Spain.
