A large party of Belfast football enthusiasts, mainly composed of Belfast Celtic members and followers, left last night for Glasgow to witness the Celtic v. Glasgow Rangers match at Parkhead to-day.

The Belfast Celtic party are to join the Glasgow Brake Clubs at half-past twelve and drive to Parkhead.

The Belfast excursionists have three days programme mapped out, which includes the Celts Saturday game.

They marches to the quay last night carrying a flag bearing portraits of their favourite players, Frederick William McKee and Harry Buckley.

The demonstration created much excitement in the crowded streets.
