Rangers eight games away from equalling outstanding Europe-wide record

Steven Gerrard’s Rangers side sit eight games away from equalling the record for most points earned in a single season, with the Light Blues looking at a potential haul of 106 if they can win all eight games.

With the Gers already on the brink of winning the title and setting several domestic records in the process, equalling the record for most points in a season would be an incredible achievement.

Winning 100 points in any season is an outstanding milestone but if Gerrard’s side can level the 106 set by Celtic in 2016/17 – widely held as one of the best teams in the history of the Scottish top flight – it would show just how incredible a job the Gers boss has done since taking the reins at Ibrox.

Levelling the previous record would also mean the Gers will have gone the entire league season undefeated, in addition to reaching (at least) the last 32 of the Europa League.

The highest points tally gained in any of Europe’s top-five leagues is 102 (Juventus 2013/14) while Barcelona, Real Madrid and Man City have all surpassed the 100 points mark.

With Rangers having only drawn four times this season, it shows just how remarkable an achievement it will be if the Light Blues can reach 106 and level a record unlikely to be beaten soon.
