Glasgow Rangers Soccer Kit Back in the Scottish Championship
In other words, it’s crucial that the Rangers have a good season if they are going to avenge that relegation from the Premiership in a year’s time. The Rangers have a talented squad, of course, so their return to the top tier of Scottish football seems like a foregone conclusion at this point. Still, that doesn’t mean that the Rangers couldn’t use some help getting there, and you can give it to them by showing your support purchasing a new Glasgow Rangers away shirt 2014 – 2015 from Soccer Box.
This year’s away version of the Glasgow Rangers soccer kit is an attractive red, white, and blue jersey from Puma. It’s a fairly traditional football kit, but the Rangers’ team crest—and the five stars embroidered above it—has surely never looked better.
The Unfair Relegation
In a way, there was nothing unfair about the relegation that the Rangers faced two years ago from the Premiership. That’s because the relegation was completely by the book of Scottish football rules—and indeed, by the football rules of virtually every league in the world. The Glasgow Rangers adopted new corporate structure during the 2012 – 2013 season, which meant that the club had to be relegated—even though the Rangers finished the year in second place on the Premiership standings table.
Still, there is a very good reason that a lot of football fans absolutely detest relegations such as these, no matter how “by the book” they are. By every single metric, the Glasgow Rangers are one of the best football clubs—if not the best football club—in all of Scotland.
Therefore, relegating the team not only out of the Premiership, but all the way down to the fourth tier of Scottish soccer, is an action that punishes fans more than anyone else. After all, who wants to watch a “premier” football league season that doesn’t include one of the premier teams in the country?
The Legacy of the Glasgow Rangers
When you purchase the new Glasgow Rangers away shirt at Soccer Box, you are involving yourself with an impressive and long-lasting legacy of Scottish soccer. Even in their third straight season outside of the Premiership, the Rangers remain the club with the highest number of Scottish national championship titles.
Rangers currently have a count of 54 titles in Scotland’s top soccer tier. The club was going for number 55 in the 2011 – 2012 season, but ended up coming in second to Celtic—and then getting relegated.
Celtic has added two trophies to its mantelpiece since the relegation of the Rangers. The club’s victory in the 2013 – 2014 Premiership was also its 45th overall championship title.
Playing in the Scottish Championship
Interestingly, the Glasgow Rangers away shirt 2014 – 2015 is not the only jersey of a top Scottish team that fans can glimpse in the Scottish Championship league this season. On the contrary, the third highest ranking Scottish club, in terms of titles, is Heart of Midlothian. Granted, there is a massive gulf between Celtic’s 45 titles and Midlothian’s 4. However, Heart of Midlothian has also been a runner-up in Scotland’s top league on 14 occasions, and has come in third place 17.
Both the Glasgow Rangers and Heart of Midlothian are competing for promotion back to the Premiership in this year’s Scottish Championship. At the moment, Midlothian is actually leading the league, with 7 wins, 1 draw, and 0 losses. Glasgow’s Rangers are just behind, with 5 wins, 1 draw, and 2 losses.
Can the Rangers win the Championship and return to the top tier of Scottish soccer? Or will their progress be stalled by Heart of Midlothian?
