- Celtic were drawn in a group with Hibernian, St Mirren and Partick Thistle.
- Debut game for John McDonald. Despite 2 goals in 2 appearances he would go out on loan to Kilmarnock in November then on to Leith Athletic in December of this year with many people disappointed that he failed to show the promise that had been seen in him in the Reserves.
- St Mirren played their new goalkeeper Pirrie, who had arrived in the closed season from Bradford, as well as two ex-'gers Williamson and Duncanson
