Rangers deliver yet another off the field blow to Celtic with new study results

Rangers may be leading the Scottish Premiership league table by four points as rivals Celtic lag behind on the pitch, whilst off it, the Gers are also excelling.

With the recent news that saw the Ibrox side thrash Celtic in social media engagements during 2021, the Gers nearly had double the figure of their rivals.

A study analysing player loyalty in the Scottish Premiership has recently been revealed and the data is telling.

Statistics were analysed by Wedbureaus.nl from the CIES Football Observatory and examined on average just how long players stayed with their respective clubs.

Rangers triumph over Celtic in yet another off-field victory

The results of the study showed that players remain at Rangers for 32.4 months, which is just under six months longer than the 26.7 months players remain at Celtic.

Although Rangers don’t top the table, that accolade goes to St Johnstone with an incredible loyalty score of 38 months.

Whilst this may not seem too important as the club chase another league title, it proves just how much loyalty comes into play when the side is aiming for success.

Loyalty is a key trait in football and with more players remaining at the club, chemistry can build, and connections are formed, enabling a greater understanding between teammates.

There are other factors when it comes to success of course, yet loyalty is underrated and was key as the Ibrox side strolled to the league title last season to secure arguably the club’s most important piece of silverware in years.

Hopefully, this small off-the-field victory can be followed up by Giovanni van Bronckhorst winning his first Old Firm match in charge next Wednesday as the race for the title heats up.

Meanwhile, the Rangers manager has admitted that ‘anything can happen between now and deadline day.
