Of the wide variety of sources used in researching this website, most are complimentary, some are intriguingly contradictory and a few, a very few, appear to be misguided at best and totally inaccurate at worst.
I have tried to weave all these sources into a single narrative and consequently it is simply not possible to acknowledge within the text the specific source or sources involved.
Unfortunately most of Celtic's records were lost in a fire in the 1920's. In consequence the information given regarding Alec's playing career with Celtic and his scoring record with them has had to be assembled from newspaper reports (and a variety of other sources.) These do not always list the players in the teams or who scored goals so these records are inevitably incomplete at this stage. Hopefully further research will help fill in the gaps
I would gratefully acknowledge the following published sources..
"Willie Maley - The Man who made Celtic" by David Potter
Archives of several newspapers including The Glasgow Herald, The Daily Record and The Scotsman

Please forgive me if I have inadvertently missed anyone out.
