22nd September – If you know your history
130 years ago … and still some asking questions about the New Club from the East End – now into the 4th season, having been Runners-Up to Third Lanark Rifle Volunteers in the Scottish Cup Final in season #1 and runners-up (3rd) behind the Joint Winners of the inaugural League Championship in season #3
Can these Bhoys win one of the 2 majors?
It’s still looking good n the League as Celts are sitting one point behind leaders Hearts, having defeated Abercorn 5-2 at Underwood Road, Paisley in front of 6,000 on 12th of September ….
it’s interesting that both ‘keepers were absolutely Duff…
A Duff, A Cuthbertson, D Cuthbertson, McNeill, Bowie, Reid, Wallace, Nicol, McLung, McLaren, Bonnar.
Goals:- Wallace, McLaren 43.
Celtic:- Duff, Reynolds, Doyle, Dowds, Kelly, Gallacher, McCallum, Brady, Madden, McMahon, Campbell.
Goals:- McMahon 2, McCallum 4, McMahon 42, McCallum, Madden 75.
Ref:- Mr Heggie, (Heart of Midlothian)
Last Saturday (19th September) the club were drawn against Kelvinside Athletic in a Glasgow Cup tie due to be played at Celtic Park. However, Kelvinside ‘scratched’ from the tournament before kick-off and Celtic were awarded a ‘walkover’ to the next round. The teams played a ‘friendly’ and Celtic romped to an 11-1 ‘win’. There are no records of teams or scorers.
Next opponents are current Champions (joint) Dumbarton who visit Celtic Park on 26th September on league duty.

60 years ago… 1961…having secured a valuable point in a 2-2 League match at Ibrox the previous weekend- tomorrow (23rd September ) Celts welcome Dundee United to Paradise on league duty. Willie Fernie is “indisposed” and it seems a strange term… maybe used when a player is unwell, but not injured. Wondering if this impacted on payments made to the player?! Mild Professional curiosity…
Celts are 3-1 winners in this game and took control for much of the game. Both Hughes and Gillespie scored their respective openers with “scorching” shots. Interesting to see Stevie Chalmers at outside right and Mike Jackson scoring from a shot .. a rebound off the bar from a Divers’ header.
Celtic: Haffey; Mackay, Kennedy; Crerand, McNeill, Price; Chalmers, Jackson, Hughes, Divers, Carroll.
Scorers: Hughes (13, Chalmers (45), Jackson (70)
Ugolini; Graham, Briggs; Neilson, Smith, Fraser; Bonnar, McMichael, Carlyle, Gillespie, Mochan.
Scorers: Gillespie (40)

20 years ago … 2001 and when we were Kings…well, almost!
Hard to believe This guy has just turned 50 … clearly Bobby Petta is not anticipating a rebound … which is just as well!!
Celts have returned from an exciting game in Turin – (3-2) even the Daily Record knew we were “ROBBED” – diving, cheating bassas that they are… Nicolo Amoruso & German referee Krug have a lot to answer for.
Still fizzing…details can keep for another time!
Today, we welcome Dons to Paradise on League business and. “Turin clouds lifted” with a 2-0 win in this dress-rehearsal for the midweek visit of Porto, on Champions League duty.
Then it’s Rangers at Ibrox…

Note: The excellent Celtic Wiki site is the font of all knowledge on things Celtic. Most of the Celtic stuff above is from that site. The guys who set it up and painstakingly keep it updated, deserve no end of credit, praise and thanks. A treasure trove for Celtic fans young and old – and new- and free to view.
