Rangers sell more football strips that any other team in Scotland. Period.
That’s according to Love the Sales who’ve tracked which Scottish side sells more of their replica tops than any other club.
As quoted by Football Scotland, it places the Famous Glasgow Rangers at the top of the table. And needless to say, the saltiness of rival Celtic fans is a joy to behold.
Total nonsense, theres no way they could accurately count sales…

Not even close.
Celtic merchandising revenue in 2017/18 was £17.3m
Rangers merchandising revenue in 2017/18 was lumped in "Other" revenue. Their "Other" was a mere £2.8m.

Those are some of the cleanest ones. It’s superb stuff.
The notion that Rangers, the biggest, most supported and historically most successful club in Scotland, also sell more strips is enough to make these fans lose the plot.
The thing is, it doesn’t stop it being any less true.
Rangers have always been Scotland’s premier club, even during times of hardship, and it’s something that is never likely to change.
As retail issues bubble away in the background at Rangers, it shows the enormous potential that the club’s merchandising has.
Rangers remain locked in a grubby war with retail tycoon Mike Ashley but fans have been encouraged to buy kits for the last two seasons after a well-publicised boycott.
The response is further proof of which club is the biggest and best in Scotland, no matter what our rivals have to say about it.
