Signed: 28 Jan 1939; 13 June 1941 (from St Anthony's)

Debut: Hibernian 0-1 Celtic, Scottish Cup, 14 June 1941
BiogJames Macdonald signed for the Bhoys in January 1939 from Blairhill Colliery but by the end of the year had been released without a competitive appearance.
After a spell back in junior football with St Anthony’s the outside-right returned to Celtic in June 1941 and made his debut in a 1-0 Summer Cup victory over Hibs at Easter Road on June 14th. He played against Rangers in a Glasgow Cup semi-final (29th Sep 1941) in which Celtic missed two penalties (not him though).
He made a total of seven Regional League appearances - netting three times. It was a terrible time to play for the club (let alone due to the war situation) and Celtic's results on the whole were appalling.
However, seems that he can hold his head up high for 3 goals in 7 games is a fair record.
He was released in the summer of 1943 and joined Albion Rovers.
