Source: Aberdeen Daily Journal, 29th April 1916The game at Pittodrie was good in parts, like the curate's egg. Rangers had some difficulty in scraping together aside, and if the 11 appeared quite good in defence, the attack was far below the Ibrox standard. It was at no time convincing, even in the first period, when it did slightly better than the spasmodic home forwards. On turning round the latter improved 50%, thanks principally to a revival on the right, where Mackay and Paton, two Gordons, made the pace a cracker for Taylor and "Sneddon." Cumming was eager, but too well watched, and in this period Archibald and Walker gave Gordon and Manderson a lot of running about. Hempsey it was who saved the goal of two, and certainly a point for Rangers. At the other end, in the last minute, Brewster's head saved Aberdeen, who am a however, on the general run of the play, ought to have won. It was by no means a bright game, but there were real interesting stages and not a few thrilling episodes, principally around Hempsey in the second half. Anderson was just as clever in the home goal. Perry and Gallacher gave a good display against Alec Bennett and Brander. Hempsey, Manderson, Gordon, Muir, and Bennett were the best Rangers. All the home defenders gave of their best, and Paton and Cumming were the pick of the forwards.
