Celtic On This Day – 29th September – David Potter’s Celtic Diary

The late, great Celtic Historian David Potter’s Celtic diary highlights key Celtic-related events relevant to each day, today covering 29 September…


Celtic beat Clyde 2-0 at Parkhead this Holiday Monday. It is a solid performance with Charlie Shaw, Alec McNair and Joe Dodds very impressive at the back and two good goals from Patsy Gallacher and Jimmy McMenemy.


Celtic register their tenth win in a row with a 4-1 win over Third Lanark at Cathkin this Holiday Monday. The team are very impressive with Adam McLean and the “boy wonder” Tommy McInally scoring two goals each.


Following some indifferent performances of late, it is nice to see a good Celtic victory today over Queen of the South with a penalty from Jimmy Delaney and a good goal from Jackie Gallacher bringing the 2-0 victory. It is also good to see more and more ex-soldiers returning from the war, some of them wearing their demob suits and hats in the 10,000 crowd.


Without being any too impressive, Celtic beat Raith Rovers 2-0 at Stark’s Park, Kirkcaldy. Bobby Murdoch and Billy McNeill (with a penalty) score the goals. It is an improvement on some recent performances.


Scott McDonald scores a hat-trick in a 3-0 win over Dundee United before 57,000 at Celtic Park today. It was a good performance and Celtic are now back on top of the League on goal difference following a disappointing performance at Easter Road last Sunday.

Meanwhile Thursday 19 October is going to be a very special day for The Celtic Star so please save the date…

John Hartson will be The Celtic Star’s guest of honour as we celebrate the launch of Matt Corr’s new book Majic, Stan and the King of Japan on Thursday 19th October at the Kerrydale Suite at Celtic Park. More information on the night and ticket details to follow…. Majic, Stan and the King of Japan tells the story of Gordon Strachan’s first dramatic and ultimately highly successful first season as Celtic manager and it was of course Big Bad John who scored the goal that won the league!
