Rangers Football Club is a Scottish football club that plays in the Scottish Premiership. The club is also referred to as Glasgow Rangers, of simply as Rangers. The club was founded in 1872 and is one of the original members of the Scottish Football League. Rangers are the most successful club of Scotland, and they have won more titles and trebles than any other club worldwide, such as 54 League titles, 33 Scottish Cups and 27 Scottish League Cups. Glasgow Rangers play all of their home matches in the Ibrox Stadium. The stadium has a capacity of over 50,000.
Rangers’ biggest rivals are city-neighbours Celtic. The match between the two clubs from Glasgow is also referred to as The Old Firm, one of the most famous derbies in the world. Both clubs are the most popular and successful clubs in Scotland, and the rivalry between them is known to be one of the fiercest rivalries in world football. In 2012, Glasgow Rangers were declared bankrupt and were placed in the 4th tier of the Scottish League. Because of that, the Old Firm wasn’t played for several years. In the 2016-17 season the Rangers were promoted back to the Scottish Premiership and the derby was reborn.
By signing Steven Gerrard as a head coach, Glasgow Rangers show their ambitions to restore pride to a club which has lost more than just a few trophies over the past few years. With players such as Alvredo Morelos, Filip Helander and George Edmundson they will be taking it up against rival Celtic once again.
