Rangers F.C.

Rangers Football Club is a football club based in Glasgow, Scotland that plays in the Third Division of the Scottish Football League. Their home ground is the 51,082-capacity all-seater Ibrox Stadium in the south-west of the city.

Founded in 1872, Rangers are one of the ten founder members of the Scottish Football League, remaining in the top division until the end of the 2011–12 season, during which the company became insolvent and entered administration. After the failure to agree a settlement with creditors, Rangers' assets were bought by a new company which obtained the transfer of Rangers' Scottish Football Association membership and relaunched the club. Though an application for admittance to the Scottish Premier League was rejected, a successful application to the Scottish Football League secured Rangers a place in the Third Division for the 2012–13 season.

In domestic football Rangers have won more league titles and trebles than any other club in the world, winning the league title 54 times, the Scottish Cup 33 times and the Scottish League Cup 27 times, and achieving the treble of all three in the same season seven times. In European football, Rangers were the first British club to reach a UEFA tournament final. They won the European Cup Winners' Cup in 1972 after being runner up twice in 1961 and 1967. A third runners up finish came in the UEFA Cup in 2008.

Rangers have a long-standing rivalry with Celtic, the two Glasgow clubs being collectively known as the Old Firm, since the late 19th century.
