Scottish giants Rangers returned to the HKFC Citi Soccer Sevens last year after last playing in the event in 2014, when they lost in the final of the Shield to Aston Villa.
The Glasgow club have won a record 54 top flight titles in a glittering 145-year history that has also seen them claim 33 Scottish Cups and 27 Scottish League Cups, while stars including Paul Gascoigne, Brian Laudrup and Ally McCoist are among a long list to establish a lasting legacy at Ibrox.
However, Rangers have only returned to the Scottish Premier League a little under two years ago after the club’s financial problems saw them relegated to the fourth tier in 2012. Back-to-back promotions elevated Rangers to the second tier by 2014, although they took a further two seasons to rejoin Scotland’s elite. Now back where they rightfully belong, a club with one of the proudest histories in British football is aiming to bring an end to their great rivals Celtic’s dominance of Scottish football.
Rangers have yet to win the HKFC Citi Soccer Sevens but did reach back-to-back finals in 2009 and 2010 only to lose 1-0 to Celtic in an all-Glasgow final before suffering a 3-2 reversal to Villa a year later.
