(Very) Old Firm dominate
Even 100 years ago the Old Firm were the big draw, as this sports lead on page 10 proves. “Rangers leaving Celtic in the race,” proclaims the headline, above a round-up of the Scottish League results from the day.
“Rangers easily smashed Clyde,” the story reports, as Celtic were held to a 1-1 draw by Hearts at Parkhead.
To give a flavour of how much sports reporting has changed in the intervening years, the Celtic match coverage included these lines: “With Celts playing a wide-passing game, they made ground quickly, and Browning had one great show, which took the woodwork. This was a ‘life’ for the Hearts, who stuck grimly to a defensive game. Rallying somewhat, they carried out a couple of dangerous movements.”
