The Dons pleased their followers by their fighting spirit against Celtic. And how the fans responded! it was cheers all the way, culminating in that victory roar that might have been heard at Cults as Ken Brownlee got that most valuable thir goal!

On writer suggested that Ken Brownlee might have been offside at the scoring of the winning goal. Actually the ball was passed out to our player by Bertie Peacock, the Celtic half-back!
