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

CELTIC’S SCOTTISH CUP FINALS – Number 14…CELTIC 1-0 MOTHERWELL – HAMPDEN, 15 APRIL 1933 – The same two teams met again in 1933, but in 1932 the excellent Motherwell team won the League – and it was as well that they did, otherwise Rangers would have done nine in a row long before we did. This was a very poor game played on a dull day at Hampden, and the only goal of the game was a tap in scored by Jimmy McGrory. Harry Lauder at the time had a record called “the saftest o the familie”. This was what they called McGrory’s goal that day, but it brought Celtic their 14th Scottish Cup. The following day Maley took the Scottish Cup to the Bridge of Weir Sanatorium to show it to TB patient Peter Scarff, who had only a few months left to live.

The Celtic team was: Kennaway, Hogg and McGonagle; Wilson, McStay and Geatons; R Thomson, A Thomson, McGrory, Napier and O’Donnell.
