Three-time finalists Rangers return to the HKFC Citi Soccer Sevens for a second consecutive year having again narrowly missed out on the Cup title at Hong Kong Football Club in 2018.  

Scotland’s Rangers reached 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 Aston Villa a year later. 

And last year, it proved not to be third time lucky for the side from Ibrox as Newcastle United claimed a 1-0 win after extra-time in the showpiece final.  

Rangers also lost to Villa in the Shield final in 2014, which was their last appearance before returning in 2017.  

Last year, Rangers won their group with an unbeaten record which included a goalless draw with Newcastle.  

West Ham United and Cagliari Calcio were both dispatched in the knockout stage, but after hitting the crossbar at the start of the second half in the final, Callum Roberts’ golden goal winner denied Rangers a first taste of success.  

The Glasgow club have won a record 54 top flight titles in a glittering 145-year history that has 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.
