Division 1 – Poor 14th Place Finish For Ayr

The 1921/22 season was the 49th season of competitive football in Scotland and the 32nd season of the Scottish Football League. Division Two was reintroduced after having been abandoned due to World War I.

Automatic promotion and relegation was introduced this season, as well as goal difference to divide teams who are level on points. Between next season and the 1974/75 season, goal average became the decider between teams equal on points.

Once again Ayr United finished 14th but with a few less points and much worse goal difference than the previous season and with three clubs being relegated they survived by 8 points.
