FOOTBALL Saturday 21



0 Celtic V Clydebank Celtic Park. Glasgow (Buses 61. 62, 64) All eyes (and ears) will be on Tannadice, where Rangers face Dundee Utd, but Celtic cannot afford any further slips by lack of concentration here.

Mitchell’s entry lorthe 1984 Sports Photography Award captures a vivid moment (see Arts listings ior current exhibition).
