Rangers F.C. is a club from Glasgow. The club was founded in 1872 by four men who got the name from an English Rugby team they had seen in a book. The club officially launched in 1873 when the first annual meeting was held and staff were elected. The club has traditional roots in the Protestant and Unionist communities, which has unfortunately sometimes led to a sectarian element in the age-old rivalry with fellow 'Old Firm' members Celtic. The clubs have both worked hard to attempt to eradicate this element of the rivalry. The founders could scarcely have foreseen the rapid success of the club. By 1876 the club had produced its first Scottish international player, Moses McNeil, one of the club's founders. In 1877 Rangers F.C. reached the Scottish Cup Final. The Scottish Football League was founded in 1890 and Rangers shared the first league title with Dumbarton. This was to be the first of 51 Scottish League titles (up to the end of the 2006-07 season), a world record. Rangers won its first Scottish Cup in 1894, a success which it followed with a further 30 Scottish Cup wins. The team has also won the Scottish League Cup on 24 occasions. In 1972 Rangers lifted the European Cup Winners Cup after beating Dynamo Moscow 3-2 in the final.
