The Scotsman - Monday, 17th August 1931, page 4
At Celtic Park, Glasgow, before 10,000 spectators, the Celtic were far superior to Dundee United, and scored twice early in the game through McGrory.
Continuing the pressure, A. Thomson increased the score, and then the home team were unfortunate to lose the services of McGrory, who met with an injury.
The visitors then scored from a penalty kick before the interval, and ten minutes after the resumption Kay got his second goal.
Although these successes were encouraging to the Dundee side, they never seriously menaced the Celtic, who ought to have won by a larger margin.
The visitors' defence was sound, if robust at times, but their forward play was very ragged. Gardner was the best half-back, and defended grandly.
R. Thomson and McGrory, until he was injured, were the Celtic's best forwards, with McStay their outstanding half-back.
