- Celtic take 2-1 lead back to Parkhead for the second leg.
- Start of game delayed for ten minutes to allow crowd into the small ground.
- A young Roy Aitken captained Celtic for the first time.
ReviewCeltic win a typical cup tie on a small park.
Doyle gave Celts the lead when he dribbled round the keeper when Glavin put him clear. Stirling equalised through a powerful Clark shot but young skipper Aitken scored a memorable winner with a 25 yard rocket shot which didn't rise more than three feet off the ground.
Celtic fans sang throughout for their injured players Danny McGrain and Alfie Conn.
