Stunning statistics compiled by Sky Sports show Rangers to be outperforming European heavyweights such as PSG and Bayern Munich so far this season.

The Gers hammered Aberdeen 4-0 at Ibrox on Sunday afternoon to extend their lead at the top of the Premiership table to 11 points.

Steven Gerrard’s side haven’t just been impressing against Scottish opposition, though. They have also been outstanding in Europe, comfortably winning three Europa League qualifiers before securing seven points from their opening three Group D fixtures.

They remain unbeaten 21 matches into the season and their numbers in several departments make for impressive reading.

With 17 in all competitions, Rangers have recorded more than double the number of clean sheets kept by any team in Europe’s top five leagues, with PSG, Borussia Dortmund and Chelsea amongst those in second place on eight.

The Gers have been strong at the back since the opening day of the campaign but with 12 goals in their last two matches, they are really starting to click at the top end of the pitch too.

With 58 in all competitions, they have scored at least 10 more than any other club in Europe’s top five leagues, with Bayern Munich currently second on 48.

Finally, Rangers’ unbeaten run is unmatched, with Chelsea’s 12-game streak the best managed by any other team.

 

While the relatively early start to the Premiership season and the club’s involvement in Europa League qualifiers means that Rangers have played more matches than many of the other teams on these lists, the numbers are still remarkable.

Given how the 2019/20 season ended, few could have foreseen such dramatic improvements.

Yet, the club’s coaching staff appear to have learned from previous mistakes and after strong recruitment in the summer, the squad is now packed full of quality and producing consistently on the pitch.
