Across Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube and TikTok, Rangers raked in a pretty incredible 3.3m interactions.
Across the city, Celtic were left in no doubt about which club is the biggest and best in Scotland as their paltry 2.28m paled in significance to the Rangers total.
Whilst Rangers have been without success off the field over the last decade, stories such as this highlight both just how loyal the support is and how big it is.
Celtic might’ve been pipping Rangers on the field but despite their dominance Rangers are still clearly the nation’s premier club.
Whilst many Rangers fans would trade these sorts of statistics for success on the pitch, they’re an insight into the power that the Rangers support possesses.
The fans have not stopped following the Ibrox club and continue to interact with Rangers online.
But now it’s the time for the team to repay that support with silverware as the pressure begins to mount in Scottish football this season.
Rangers are set to play Celtic in the Scottish Premiership this weekend – is this the team which Steven Gerrard will pick for the crunch match?
