ON THIS DAY JULY 10TH


On 10 July 1989 Glasgow Rangers signed Maurice Johnston.

One of the last bastions of Scottish Protestant sectarianism, Rangers shocked many of its supporters when the club, under manager Graeme Souness, signed Maurice Johnston from the French club, Nantes, for 1.5m. Johnston had not only played for arch-rivals Celtic, but was the first well-known Roman Catholic player to sign for Rangers in modern times.


On 10 July 1802 Robert Chambers, the Scottish naturalist and publisher, was born.

Author of Vestiges of the Natural History of Creation, a pioneering work on the theory of evolution, he was also co-founder, with his brother William, of Chambers Encyclopaedia.
