Rangers Football Club are based in Glasgow, Scotland. The club are nicknamed the Gers, Teddy Bears (from the rhyming slang for the same) and the Light Blues. They are sometimes referred to as Glasgow Rangers, although the word Glasgow is not part of the club’s official title. The club’s home is the all-seated 51,082-capacity Ibrox Stadium in south-west Glasgow. The four founders of Rangers were brothers Moses and Peter McNeil, Peter Campbell and William McBeath who met in 1872 and named their team after an English rugby club upon seeing the name in a book.
Rangers have won 54 League Championships, more top-flight national championships than any other club in the world. They have won the Scottish League Cup 27 times, more than any other Scottish club, and the Scottish Cup 33 times. In 1961, Rangers reached the final of the European Cup Winners’ Cup, becoming the first British club to reach the final of a UEFA club competition. They won the European Cup Winners’ Cup in 1972. The club have traditionally been identified with and favored by the Protestant and Unionist community of Scotland, as well as the Unionist community in Northern Ireland. For most of their history, Rangers have enjoyed a fierce rivalry with their cross-city opponents Celtic.
