David Potter on Celtic winning Scottish Cup Finals from 1914 to 1951

CELTIC’S SCOTTISH CUP FINALS – Number 11…CELTIC 2-1 DUNDEE – HAMPDEN, 11 APRIL 1925 – One of Celtic’s most famous Scottish Cup finals as Celtic came from behind to beat a strong Dundee side who had scored in the first half through ex-Celtic player Davie McLean. But Celtic inspired by “wonderful Patsy” came back and scored twice in the second half with goals from Gallacher (the famous “somersault” goal with the ball wedged between his legs) and then an equally famous goal, a diving header by Jimmy McGrory from a “Jean” McFarlane free kick. Celtic had now won the Scottish Cup eleven times, once more than Queen’s Park.

The Celtic team was: Shevlin, W McStay and Hilley; Wilson, J McStay and McFarlane; Connolly, Gallacher, McGrory, Thomson McLean.
