SATURDAY 6 FEBRUARY 1909 – A “capital attendance” in good weather at Parkhead sees Scottish Cup holders Celtic beat Port Glasgow Athletic 4-0 in the Scottish Cup. Captain Jimmy Hay scores twice and the other goals are scored by Jimmy Quinn and Davie Hamilton.

mmense dismay of Celtic supporters and following several days of speculation, Pat Crerand signs for Manchester United for a fee reputed to be £56,000.
