The Glasgow Herald, Monday, Nov. 4 1918
As the Celtic forwards did not give unqualified satisfaction when scoring heavily at Dumbarton, they may be written down as disappointing in only scoring once at home against St. Mirren. McLean, preferred before Burns as Gallagher’s partner, secured the point with a splendid shot, and in other respects justified the choice; a forward who can make himself at home at centre or on either wing must be reckoned as useful.
