  1. The Scottish Premier League introduced Manager & Player of the Month Awards at the start of the 2000-01 season and added the Young Player of the Month Award the season after. Since their introduction, 99 Manager & Player of the Month Awards have been won, together with 90 Young Player of the Month Awards. Alex McLeish and Martin O'Neill head the Managers list with 9 awards each, while Barry Ferguson has won the Player of the Month award 4 times. Derek Riordan won the Young Player of the Month award 6 times. Overall, 17 of the 18 clubs which have participated in the Scottish Premier League have won at least one monthly award, the exception being Gretna. Rangers' managers have been honoured 15 times, with a Rangers footballer winning the Player of the Month award 26 times. The award for Young Player of the Month has gone to Rangers 7 times, giving an overall tally of 48 monthly awards. Scottish Premier League Manager, Player & Young Player of the Month Awards
  2. The Squad Number 13

    Christian superstition has it that 13 is an unlucky number, as that's how many people were seated for Jesus' last supper. By contrast, 13 is regarded as a lucky number in Judaism as it's the age when young men have their Bar Mitzvah and the number has various other positive connotations. In football, 13 is most often the squad number assigned to the first reserve goalkeeper in a squad. The only Rangers player to have been given the number 13 shirt during the SPL era was Antti Niemi in season 1998-99.
  3. When was the last time Berwick were in the Scottish Premier League?
  4. I know that this issue will open a can of worms, but here's why Ireland was "missing" from the list: Ireland has been a soverign and independent country since 1922. I wouldn't want to take anything away from their soverignty or independence as a Nation. Having said that, there are numerous historical, cultural, geographical, sporting and political reasons why Ireland and the United Kingdom have a special relationship and thus players from Ireland have been treated differently in the data to, say, players from Bolivia or Japan. You only have to look at the recent "Nations Cup" (also called 4 Associations' Tournament or Celtic Cup) to see why this is the case.
  5. 558 Foreign Players have played in the Scottish Premier League from season 1998-99 to 2010-11. Rangers have had the most foreign players with 89. France has supplied the most players with 85. Players from a total of 78 foreign countries (non-British & Irish Isles) have had participate in the Scottish Premier League since season 1998-99.

  6. Rangers European Record in recent years

    Rangers have reached the Semi-Finals or better in major European competitions 6 times. Once as winners, three times as losing finalists and twice as losing semi-finalists. Fiorentina from Italy and Marseilles from France have identical records to Rangers. This puts Ranger's record as the 22nd best in Europe... Major European Club Competitions Last 4 1955-56 to 2010-11

  10. Rangers SPL Player's Squad Numbers 1999-2011

    Thanks to everyone who was kind enough to post corrections - I'll amend the table as soon as I get a spare moment. I'm almost finished compiling the full squad lists for every team who has participated in the Scottish Premier League. If you're interested, you can see them at the top of this page...

  11. Rangers SPL Player's Squad Numbers 1999-2011

    Sorry about that - the 1998-99 season squad numbers have now been added. BTW, Alan Hutton was nominated as the Premier League's best right back of 2010 by Sky Sport for his stints with Sunderland on loan in the first half of the year and with Spurs this season. He's now firmly re-established himself as our first choice right back.
  12. I've just finished compiling a table of every Rangers player's squad number from their introduction in season 1999-2000 to date. The table features every season Rangers have participated in the Scottish Premier League since the introduction of squad numbers. There's far too much information to post here but you can see the table in the link below... Rangers SPL Squad Numbers ...hopefully there won't be too many errors, but if you do see one, please be kind enough let me know. Perhaps you'd like to name your favourite Rangers player for every shirt number? I hope you enjoy your trip down memory lane!
