Rangers FC

The traditional Glasgow club has been nicknamed in several ways, namely The Gers, The Light Blues and The Teddy Bears. The club's traditional rivals are Celtic, a rivalry with religious and political overtones. Celtic are historically associated with the Irish and Scots of Irish descent, who are predominantly Catholic. Rangers, on the other hand, are recruited from Scottish or Northern Irish Protestants linked to the political strand of British Unionism. Hence the animosity between supporters of both clubs. The colours of Rangers are royal blue, white and red.

Historical milestones and club achievements

The club was founded in 1872 and is one of the original 11 founding members of the Scottish Football League. It remained in the top flight until the 2012/13 season, when the club went into relegation due to debt and dropped down to the league's fourth division. From there it slowly worked its way up, with the current top league, the Scottish Premiership, being played again since 2016. Since then it has always fallen in the final to Celtic.

The club's most successful era has been since Bill Struth took over the reins. The long-time assistant was installed as club manager in 1920 and began a 34-year tenure at the helm during which Rangers replaced Celtic as the most successful club in the country. During his time at Rangers:

  • were Scottish champions 19 times
  • won 12 Scottish Cups

Overall, Rangers now have 54 domestic competition wins under their belt, making them the club with more league titles than anyone else in the world. They also have 33 Scottish Cups and 27 Scottish League Cups. In terms of European competitions, they have one Cup Winners' Cup win from the 1971/72 season.

Disasters and records

Rangers' home stadium is Ibrox Stadium, which currently holds 50,817 spectators. It is the third largest stadium in Scotland. It is associated with the famous 1902 accident when the former wooden terraced stand collapsed, killing 50 fans and injuring 500 others. Another accident was the 1971 crush, where 66 people died. After that, the stadium was completely rebuilt. The stadium also holds the British attendance record, when an incredible 118,567 people came to watch a league match against Celtic in 1939.
