- King George VI had died on 6th February.
- Celtic were third from bottom with 16 points from 20 games. Below them were Third Lanark with 16 points from 22 games and Stuirling Albion with 13 points from 23 games. Immediately above were Morton on 17 points from 22 games. This game against bottom and doomed club Stirling Albion was a vital game for Celtic.
- Jackie Millsop started at left half rather than Joe Baillie. Alex Rollo had not recovered from the pulled muscle he sustained in the Cup-tie replay against Third Lanark.
ReviewDescribed as a pretty poor game.
Celtic started well putting the Stirling Albion goal under considerable pressure with Jenking saving with his face from a Walsh shot, the ball connoning off his face and out for a corner. Jenkins went off to receive attention to his nose with george Henderson taking over in goal. Collins scored from the spot after Walsh had been brought down and injured in the area. Walsh resumed on the wing. Jenkins failed to appear at the start of the second half and Albion continued with 10 men with Henderson in goal. Then in a three minute spell McPhail scored after chasing a hacked away ball from Stein and getting a lucky rebound from the Henderson clearance. IOne minute later Collins scored with a low angled ball and then Albion got one back from a goalmouth melee.
