SIGNED from St Mirren during World War One, Chadderton-born Arthur Dixon was hugely successful in his time at Rangers.

An influential defender recruited by William Wilton, his impact was such he was awarded a benefit match against Liverpool in 1923 and 10,000 fans attended a 1-1 draw.

A winner of six league titles, Dixon was to spend more time at Ibrox after he hung up his boots and retired from playing.

Indeed, he performed an important role as a trainer and assisted the legendary Bill Struth after making 362 competitive appearances for the Light Blues.

Englishman Dixon had started out at local club Oldham Athletic as a youngster but went on to spend most of his career north of the border.

As well as enjoying two loan spells at St Mirren, he also plied his trade for a period with Fife club Cowdenbeath.

Although he played at the back, Dixon was known to occasionally find the net for Rangers and he scored eight goals for the club.
