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

Month 2, Day 29 of Celtic Historian David Potter’s new diary on The Celtic Star which will run throughout the new season and will highlight key Celtic-related events relevant to each day, today covering 29 September…

MONDAY 29 SEPTEMBER 1913

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.

MONDAY 29 SEPTEMBER 1919

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.

SATURDAY 29 SEPTEMBER 1945

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.

SATURDAY 29 SEPTEMBER 1962

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.

SATURDAY 29 SEPTEMBER 2007

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.
