The Glasgow Herald – Feb 17, 1919
Altered climate conditions vetoed the proposed alterations in the Celtic attack, and McLean and McColl were not asked to make way for Browning and Cassidy. The centre-forward made a bold bid for further restoration by scoring three goals, aided and abetted by McMenemy and Gallagher, whose inimitable moves were not to be checked on such a treacherous surface by a rather crude defence. In defence as in attack Celtic shone refulgently, McNair exhibiting all those mannerisms that mark him as unique in contemporary football.
