The Glasgow Herald – Dec 23, 1918
VETERANS’ STEADYING INFLUENCE
Hamilton Academicals have never beaten Celtic at Dougals Park, but when Purdie scored for them after five minutes even play it appeared probable that the ex-Champions would meet their first defeat on that ground. However in McMenemy and McNair they possessed veterans in attack and defence who have the knack of infusing coolness and confidence in their less experienced comrades, and before the interval the scores were level. Celtic were the better team. The local attack became more disjointed, the half-backs more dispirited as the game developed on unexpected lines, and only the adamant opposition of Mason and Miller stood between Celtic and a more pronounced victory.
