Redirected from Glasgow Rangers

Glasgow Rangers F.C. is a Scottish football club, nicknamed the Gers. With Glasgow Celtic F.C. they dominate the Scottish football league as the 'Old Firm'. They play in light blue shirts, white shorts and black socks.

Note that "Glasgow Rangers F.C." is a misnomer. Strictly the name of the club is "Rangers Football Club". As in the case of Celtic F.C., the name of the city does not form part of the club's name.

The club play at the 50,411 seater Ibrox Stadium in Edmiston Drive, one of the finest stadiums in Europe. Rangers won the Scottish League championship nine years in a row, from 1989 to 1997.

Founded in 1872 as Argyle.
