TOUR 1904

Postby LEATHERSTOCKING » Thu May 11, 2017 6:52 am

In mid May 1904, both Celtic & Rangers set off on tour to Austria & Bohemia. I`m wondering - did they travel on the same trains & ferries to reach the centre of Europe and return?

Apparently not on the way there!

Dundee Evening Post - Wednesday 18 May 1904

While Celtic left for Austria on Monday [16 May 1904] and will be followed by Rangers to-morrow [19 May 1904] whose destination is the same country.

Edinburgh Evening News - Friday 20 May 1904

Glasgow teams on the Continent – The Celtic players, who left Glasgow on Monday [16 May 1904] to play a series of matches in Vienna, Buda- Pesth and Prague, won the opening match of the tour at Vienna on Wednesday [18 May 1904] by four goals to two. The Rangers players left St Enoch’s yesterday [19 May 1904] morning for the same destination.

Thank you for that. With Rangers playing six matches & Celtic only 3, it`s unlikely they united in their travel arrangements on the way home either.
