Dumbarton and Rangers was joint league winners in 1890/91. Neil Kerr played all 18 league matches and scored 8 goals for Rangers. He is also listed with 1 game & 1 goal for Dumbarton. When did he play for Dumbarton? Is it correct, or was it maybe another Kerr who played for them?

I think there are two Kerr's.
On 24 January 1891, Dumbarton defeated Cambuslang 5-0. The Glasgow Herald reports "Kerr" in the Dumbarton line-up and scoring a goal. On the same day Neil Kerr scores in a 1-0 win for Rangers over Hearts (report in Glasgow Herald).
So unless there was different kick-off times, it is not the same player but both could be called Neil Kerr?
