Professional football in Scotland


May 2, 1893
At a meeting of the Scottish Football Association held last night, in Glasgow, at which there was a large attendance, Mr. McLaughlin (Celtic) carried his motion to permit professionalism by a large majority. When the proposition was put the representatives rose “en masse”, and loud cheers greeted the chairman’s announcement that professionalism had at last been legalised.

An effort will now be made to come to a mutual understanding with England on the registration of professional players.
(Liverpool Echo: May 3, 1893)
