Division 1 – First Division Status Maintained

The 1920/21 season was the 48th season of competitive football in Scotland and the 31st season of the Scottish Football League.

Ayr United Manager James McDonald had a more disappointing season with Ayr, finishing 14th in the First Division.

Again the season was one of good wins and some heavy defeats such as a 6-1 Christmas Day defeat at Motherwell and a 7-2 thrashing at Ibrox in March.

The up side was two 5-1 home wins against two, now defunct clubs, Clydebank in February and Third Lanark in April.

21st January saw a well earned testimonial for ex Ayr manager Jimmy Richardson with a Scottish Select side ending in the usual draw for these types of matches, 3-3..
