aka: Andy Donaldson
Born: 5 June 1884
Birthplace: Airdrie, North Lanarkshire
Signed: 29 April 1911
Left: 1 Feb 1912
Debut: Celtic 5-2 Third Lanark, Charity Cup, 6 May 1911
BiogInside-left Andy Donaldson signed for Celtic in April 1911 from his hometwon side Airdrie. He was apparently "the personification of pluck"! Better to have it than not!
A more than competent attacker he made a scoring first team debut on May 6th as Celtic defeated Third Lanark 5-2 in a Charity Cup tie at Parkhead.
However with competition for a starting spot from the likes of Travers, McMenemy and Gallacher, Donaldson's time in the Hoops was short lived.
He returned to Airdrie in February 1912 after 17 Celtic appearances and five goals, a commendable total, and possibly we could have missed a trick here.
At his second spell at Airdrie, he scored 4 goals in a single game v Rangers on 4 Jan 1915, enough we can assume to make him popular with Celts even though he'd left.
