Rangers have made it into UEFA’s top ten most successful teams in Europe over the past five years.
The Scottish club have earned 17075 points during that period, with their run to the Europa League final last season having played a key role in their rise through the rankings.
Remarkably, the Gers are just under 500 points behind last year’s Champions League winners Chelsea, who currently sit ninth in the table, with this season’s victors Real Madrid just ahead of them. See the top ten below:
1) Bayern Munich – 19,714
2) Liverpool – 19,429
3) Manchester City – 19,143
4) Paris Saint-Germain – 18,667
5) Ajax – 18,000
6) Red Bull Salzburg – 17,900
7) Red Star Belgrade – 17,875
8) Real Madrid – 17,714
9) Chelsea – 17,571
10) Rangers – 17,075
Barcelona are actually below the Light Blues in 11th position, while Manchester United find themselves down in 14th. It really is a stunning turnaround from the Old Firm club, who were only knocked out of the Europa League at the first qualifying round stage by Luxembourg outfit Progress Niederkorn five years ago.
