Rionnag Chaillte

Tha Ailig O'Henley a' toirt thugainn an stòiridh aig Calum 'Malky' Dòmhnallach agus na ceangalaichean aige ri Uibhist a Deas. Bha Calum air fear de na rionnagan san sgioba ainmeil a bh' aig Celtic aig deireadh na 30an. Bho freumhaichean iriosal ann an Uibhist a Deas gu bhith air fear a fhuair trì tadhail ann an geam dearbaidh Old Firm. Tha am prògram a' cluinntinn bho Iain Smith as an Leth Mheadhanach aig a bheil cuimhne air a bhith a' cluiche ball-coise còmhla ri Calum agus Ruaraidh Mac a' Phearsain aig a bheil stòiridh inntinneach mun bhall leis an d'fhuair Calum a 'hat-trick' ainmeil sin an aghaidh Rangers. Tha stiùiriche agus eachdraiche Celtic, Brian Wilson, a' dèanamh measadh air àite Chaluim sa chiad leth-cheud bliadhna de dh'eachdraidh Celtic agus tha Roy Camshron a' cuimhneachadh air a' bhuaidh a thug an Dòmhnallach air sgioba Chille Mhearnaig far an robh e dà uair na mhanaidsear.
Alex O'Henley brings us the untold story of Celtic great Calum 'Malky' MacDonald and his connections with the island of South Uist. MacDonald was one of the stars of Celtic's 'Golden Team' team of the 1930s. 'Rionnag Chaillte,' 'Forgotten Star', tells the story of Calum 'Malky' MacDonald from his humble origins in South Uist to being one of the few players who has scored a hat-trick in an Old Firm derby. The programme also hears from Iain Smith who remembers playing football with Calum, while Roddy MacPherson recalls how the ball with which MacDonald scored his famous hat-trick against Rangers may have found its final resting place in a garden shed in Lochboisdale. Celtic director and historian, Brian Wilson assesses MacDonald's importance in the first 50 years of the club's history, while lifelong Kilmarnock fan Roy Cameron remembers MacDonald's spells as manager at Rugby Park.
