Rangers have announced they’re proud to be a part of a 200+ strong European club membership organisation.
Taking to Twitter to voice their support, Rangers joined the likes of PSG, AC Milan, Napoli and even rivals Celtic in giving their backing to the European Club Association.
The group “exists to safeguard, strengthen and shape European club football.” Rangers are clearly delighted to help do the same.

The European Club Association act as a collective, representative voice on behalf of its member clubs. The ambition is to ensure clubs have a voice in the major decisions which concern football across Europe.
It is the sole independent body representing football clubs at European level. First created in 2008, the ECA has set about becoming the “voice of clubs” in the region.
The ECA ultimately exists to protect and promote the future of club football in Europe. Its major aim is “to create a new, more democratic governance model that truly reflects the key role of the clubs.”
The Organisation looks to strengthen each of the clubs for the benefit of all of its members and strengthen the role of European football clubs as a major stakeholder in the game.
