KILMARNOCK CONQUER CELTIC

After their failure against East Fife in the Scottish Cup tie, it was not expected that Kilmarnock would be able to overcome Celtic in the League game. But surprises often happen, and there was certainly one on Rugby Park. From first-to last it was a hard, fast, and determined game. Celtic opened the scoring through McGrory after five minutes. Shortly afterwards Rattray brought about the equaliser for Kilmarnock 

The ball travelled rapidly from end to end, and both custodians were tested. Jackson put Kilmarnock, in the lead with a nice shot, and before the interval Cassidy was responsible for Celtic’s second goal. Beginning level in, the second half it was, not long till McCuIloch placed Kilmarnock in the ascendancy. 

Though the ground was slippery, the pace continued fast. M'Atee equalised the game again before half an hour had gone. A great struggle for supremacy ensued, and in the last fifteen minutes the play was of the liveliest description, Smith scored the winning goal for Kilmarnock. 

Altogether it was a thrilling game and it was thoroughly enjoyed by nearly 10,000 spectators.


The Glasgow Herald, 5 Feb 1923

Kilmarnock, 4; Celtic 3.

Kilmarnock attacked at the start, but there was little sting in their effort. Play afterwards became fast, and Celtic opened the scoring through McGrory. Two minutes later Rattray equalised. 

Twenty minutes from the start Jackson scored for Kilmarnock, and before the interval Cassidy brought the scores level again. 

Five minutes from the resumption McCulloch gave Kilmarnock the lead but ten minutes from the finish McAtee scored for Celtic. 

Kilmarnock got the winning goal through Smith. 

Goal-scorers: – Kilmarnock – Rattray, Jackson, McCulloch, and Smith; Celtic – McGrory, Cassidy, and McAtee.

Killie chasing 4th. Lekovic was gone. Mavis scores from just outside Barrhead. And Jim McIntyre apparently changes his name to Tom Wright...

massively underrated player - he would be absolutely fantastic in the game these days.  a defensive minded midfielder who could pass, shoot, tackle and has real discipline.  Had my POTY vote for a good few seasons running.

Not just the square pass merchant he was sometimes painted as. Very much the unsung hero at the heart of our team.

He was a favourite target of the boo boys at the time. Lost count of the arguments I had with people about him: it honestly felt at the time like I was the only Killie fan that appreciated him! Feels good now to see I wasn't the only one after all.

Yep. On loan from PSV. Didn't he start the whole 'Aye, but what about his hot missus' stuff in the old place?

Interesting that Jock Brown mentions Stephen wasn't deemed fit enough for this game. He wasn't fit for his debut 'last week' at Thistle.

This also marks Tom Callaghan's final game for us.

Very attacking team. Fowler the only defensive player in front of the back four, obviously AJ a CM by this point but none the less

It really is the toss of a coin who I hate more - thistle or our inbred, webtoed, soap dodging, web toes cave dwelling neighbours from down the road.
