Steven Gerrard’s side trounced Hamilton 8-0 at Ibrox in November and many other Premiership hammerings have been handed out across the campaign, including last weekend’s 4-1 Old Firm win.

Rangers netted eleven times in three early-season Europa League Qualifiers and then went on to score heavily in the tournament proper, putting nine past Royal Antwerp across the two legs of their Round of 32 tie in February.

Overall, the Gers have scored a whopping 131 goals from 54 matches in all competitions this season, which is more than any other team in Europe.

Bayern Munich are their closest challengers on 126. Ajax, Red Bull Salzburg and Red Star Belgrade all have 124, while Champions League finalists Man City have 119 and Barcelona 117.

The side that defeated Rangers in the Europa League Last 16, Slavia Prague, are on 115, with star-studded PSG producing the same amount.

Rangers have played a few more matches than most of the other sides on the list, but it’s still remarkable that they have scored more goals than any other club in Europe’s top 20 leagues.

Only two 2020/21 fixtures now remain for the Gers, with a trip to Livingston on Wednesday evening to be followed by a home clash against Aberdeen next Saturday.
