The first Old Firm match was won by Celtic and there have been over four hundred matches played to date.

During the 19th century, many immigrants came to Glasgow from Ireland — this was a time of considerable anti-Catholic and anti-Irish sentiment in Scotland.
Rangers partnered with Celtic to form the Old Firm Alliance, an initiative aimed at educating children from across Glasgow about issues like healthy eating and fitness, as well as awareness of anti-social behaviour, sectarianism and racism.
However, sectarian chanting by supporters has continued to incur criticism and sanctions upon the club as well as convictions against individuals identified.

Henry McNeil won a total of 10 caps for his country and scored 5 goals. Archived from the original on 20 January Retrieved 20 January Rangers were born in March , after a group of teenage rowing enthusiasts watched a game of football in Glasgow Green.
Brothers Peter and Moses McNeil and Peter Campbell and William McBeath got their heads together to give rise to the club, who played just two matches in their first year.
The year is the official founding of Rangers as that was the year the elected office bearers. The first time the club donned blue shirts was their second game, against Clyde not the present-day club and won it 11—0.
Five years after their founding, Rangers made it to their first major cup final against Vale of Leven. The game was played at First Hampden Park and it finished 1—1 so a replay beckoned.
Rangers refused to turn up for the replay and Vale were awarded the cup. The teams met the following year in the Charity Cup. The —91 season saw the inception of the Scottish Football League, and Rangers were one of ten original members.

By their second fixture — the only other they played that first year — they had donned the light blue.
It must have done the trick — Rangers beat Clyde 11—0. By Rangers had their first international, Moses McNeil one of the four founders, who made his Scotland debut in a 4—0 victory over Wales.

Archived from the original on 13 January Retrieved 6 January The humiliated Rangers boss that day was Scot Symon, so it is with a pleasing symmetry that Symon was a player in the other record victory in an Old Firm match.

He returned to Rangers just one year later where he would steer them to six league championships. The teams to avoid, plum picks and all you need to know about the group stage draw".
Semi-finalists — Lost to Eintracht Frankfurt 12—4 on aggregate in what remains a record scoreline in a European Cup semi-final. Retrieved 23 August David Murray, the chairman of Rangers, yesterday unveiled a bronze statue of John Greig, the captain who led his team against Celtic on the day of the accident.
The statue lists the names of those who died in and 25 fans killed when wooden terraces collapsed during a match between Scotland and England in Mr Greig then laid a wreath at the plinth of the statue.
An inquiry, however, later discounted the theory and said that the crush was likely to have happened 10 minutes after the final whistle and to have been triggered by someone falling on the stairs.
Retrieved 17 August Retrieved 22 March I played with a stress fracture in my foot. A guy jumped on it late in the final and I ended up with another fracture on the other side, but the euphoria kept the pain away until I was called down to this little room to receive the trophy.
It all passed in a blur, but I hobbled down there in agony with our manager Willie Waddell and a UEFA delegate and, in this cramped corner covered in Barcelona memorabilia, the delegate handed me the trophy and basically said: When I got back to the dressing room all my team-mates were either in the bath or out of it.
Waddell succeeded in getting this reduced to one year, meaning Rangers could not defend their trophy. Waddell argued that the police had over-reacted, that the fans were drunk but not intent on violence, and that recent European finals had witnessed rejoicing Celtic, Bayern Munich and Ajax fans running on to the park and those occasions had been deemed acceptable.

Retrieved 26 August There will be no more fitting way to mark his departure than to beat Celtic to another championship but Walter has already established himself as one of the finest managers Scotland has ever produced.
After Sir Alex Ferguson and Jock Stein, his record is fantastic; his success is there for all to see. Retrieved 31 December Graham Souness lead the side to their first two championships as player-manager before his assistant, Walter Smith, took the reign, claiming another seven titles to equal a record set by Jock Stein at Celtic in the s and 70s.

At this point McLeish was viewed as one of the hottest managers in the game. Many of his prize assets were sold and subsequently Celtic won the league comfortably.
Also, Rangers failed to pick up a single trophy that season. Boumsong joined Rangers from Auxerre on a free transfer last summer and made just 28 appearances for them before moving to England.
Rangers have completed the signing of Nacho Novo from Dundee but manager Alex McLeish insists his summer spending spree is not yet over.
Rangers pipped rivals Celtic to the Scottish Premier League title after a dramatic final day of the season. The Gers went into the final game two points behind their Glasgow rivals but a sensational late fightback by Motherwell gave them the title.
Peter Lovenkrands was the goalscoring hero as Rangers became the first Scottish club to qualify from the group stages of the Champions League.
Criticised by some for his tactics during a run without a win now stretching to 10 games, McLeish got it right on the European stage with the surprise inclusion of Lovenkrands as a lone striker.
Until Gravesen gave the home side the lead there was a wariness about both sides, which betrayed the number of players on each side who were making their first appearance in the conflict.
If Celtic were expected to be dominant — with Rangers reliant on the absorption of pressure and the counter-thrust — Gordon Strachan and his players would also be mindful of the four-point advantage they held over their great rivals and the need not to risk having it damaged.
Retrieved 22 April On one side was an authoritarian French manager used to having the final word and working with clean-living, tee-total players.
On the other was a passionate Scottish captain who enjoyed talisman status with the fans and liked to work hard and play hard. There were reported to be differences between the duo soon after Le Guen took over at Ibrox seven months ago.
And they came to the surface at a news conference before the last Old Firm derby on 17 December. Rangers manager Paul Le Guen has left the club by mutual consent.
Walter Smith has quit as Scotland coach to become boss of Rangers for a second time after agreeing a three-year deal. Rangers crashed out of the Champions League and into the Uefa Cup with a disappointing home defeat to Lyon.
Panathinaikos, Werder Bremen and Fiorentina have been dispatched, along with Sporting since Rangers qualified via their position in the Champions League group stage.
Rangers may have been criticised for their cautious approach in European games this season — but Zenit St Petersburg boss Dick Advocaat insists Walter Smith should not change his style of play when the sides clash in the UEFA Cup final.

Retrieved 21 May Retrieved 20 August With the boundless relief and joie de vivre of a man who has been reprieved on the steps of the gallows and installed in a palace, Rangers produced a climactic performance to snatch their first championship since at sun-drenched Tannadice.
Rangers completed the second stage of their Scottish league and cup double in the baking heat of Hampden Park on Saturday thanks to a glorious goal from Nacho Novo, with his first touch of the ball only seconds after arriving as a half-time substitute for Kris Boyd.
But the favourites were made to sweat throughout — and not simply because of the sweltering conditions. It would, of course, be churlish not to recognise the winning mentality of a team who have lost just a single domestic fixture since Celtic lifted this trophy at their expense a year ago.
Yet this win arrived in the most unlikely of circumstances, sealing the League Cup despite being down to nine men. Rangers manager Walter Smith described the Co-operative Insurance Cup final win over Celtic as one of his "best ever" victories.
Smith, coming to the end of his second spell in charge at Ibrox, clinched a 20th trophy as Rangers boss after the 2—1 extra-time win at Hampden.
Retrieved 16 May Rangers gave departing manager Walter Smith the perfect send-off as they wrapped up a third-consecutive Scottish Premier League title in style.
A blistering opening saw Kyle Lafferty net twice inside seven minutes, either side of a Steven Naismith strike. Early in the second half, Nikica Jelavic smashed in a free kick and Lafferty completed his hat-trick with a composed finish.
