In our latest club history piece, we’re taking a look at Rangers’ biggest ever wins across all competitions.
Pretty much ever since the club was founded in 1872, Rangers have been heavyweights, particularly in the domestic game, as is reflected by the spread of these record victories.
The Gers’ biggest ever margin of victory is 13 goals, which they achieved three times in the Scottish Cup between 1877 and 1889.
Possilpark, Uddingston and Kelvinside Athletic were each defeated 13-0 in October 1877, November 1877 and September 1889 respectively [Fitbastats.com].
Rangers have scored more than 13 goals in a single match on two occasions, though, beating Whitehill 14-2 in the Scottish Cup in September 1883 and Blairgowrie in the same competition by the same scoreline in January 1934 [Fitbastats.com].
The club’s record ever league win came on Christmas Eve in 1898, when they downed Hibernian 10-0.
Rangers’ biggest ever European victory was by the same scoreline against Valletta FC of Malta in September 1983 and their record League Cup win was a 9-1 victory over St Johnstone in August 1964.
As you will have noticed, many of these record scorelines came over 100 years ago.
Therefore, we thought we’d throw in a more recent triumph to round things off.
Rangers’ biggest win since Steven Gerrard’s appointment as manager came in November 2020 when Hamilton Accies were hammered 8-0 at Ibrox, with Scott Arfield, Kemar Roofe (2), Joe Aribo (2), Brandon Barker and James Tavernier (2) all on the scoresheet.
