Rangers compared to teams in Europe’s big 5 leagues – and the Glasgow giants are crushing it

Steven Gerrard’s effervescent Rangers side has made a lot of teams sit up and take notice with their performances so far this season, both in the Scottish Premiership and in the UEFA Europa League.

As the Glasgow outfit sit on top of the table being still undefeated, Sky Sports’ recent analysis of them has served a lot of teams a well-earned reminder of how good Rangers have been this season.

These stats are too good to be true

Besides being undefeated in the league with 13 wins and a couple of draws, Rangers have proven to be very miserly at the back: they hardly entertain any penetration in defence and have the most amount of clean sheets (13) in all competitions out of all teams in Europe’s top five leagues and the Scottish Premiership.

Even though they are incredibly solid in their rearguard, it is safe to say that their attackers have also got their finishing boots on with the most amount of goals in the league (41) and a whopping 58 goals in all competitions.

Rangers are also the side with the hottest streak of current form in Europe, having gone 21 games unbeaten in all competitions: they are yet to lose a game this season.

These extraordinary statistics when compared with in form European superpowers such as the likes of Bayern Munich will well cement Rangers as a force to be reckoned with both in domestic and continental competition, as well as their reputation as a historical European heavyweight coming back to their past glory.

If Rangers carry this form on through a major part of the season, Steven Gerrard will be looking forward to break his elusive league title jinx by winning the Scottish Premiership, and maybe go another step further by winning the Europa League.
