The Glasgow Herald – Dec 15, 1919
A Centre-Forward Problem
Celtic met with the same unbending opposition, and at Airdrie in addition had to combat a much more formidable attack. Any advantage held by the city team in possessing two such experienced wing forwards as McMenemy and Gallagher were neutralised by the manifest inferiority of McInally to Reid, which meant both attacks being on the same plane and a general equality that was faithfully reflected in the result.
