The Glasgow Herald – Dec 1, 1919
Aberdeen, on the other hand, had only their own recklessness to blame for their failure against Celtic. Their defence was equal to all calls made upon it by forwards who have not been strikingly successful recently, to say the least, and had the northern forwards shown a little of that purpose and confidence which mark the Parkhead attack even in decadence, Celtic would have shared in a fourth consecutive drawn game; McNair and Cringan fully accounted for a line whose only asset was impetuosity, and by scoring the only goal Gilchrist added lustre to the only efficient section of the winning team. The Celtic attack was irritatingly clever and ineffective.
