Scottish Reserve League 
Celtic 2 - 1 Aberdeen
    Match abandoned after 75 minutes.
Kick Off:  3:00 PM   Colrain, Conway 44.       McCall.  
Attendance: 0
Venue: Celtic Park, Glasgow
The Reserves were in Glasgow for the second successive week, but last Saturday they were a changed side, both in formation and in play. The Young Dons, though a goal behind, were fighting back strongluy when the referee called the sides in. Fog!


Will the abandoned Celtic A match have to be replayed? We imagine a decision will not be made until near the end of the season.
