Rangers have earned a stunning amount of praise this season for their Europa League exploits, putting away Feyenoord and Porto along the way.
But the numbers that represent where Rangers are right now demonstrate even more what an achievement Rangers have presented, and, more crucially, the teams in the Europa League Rangers officially rank above.
In terms of offensive attainment, as a numbered rating, Rangers score a very respectable 6.75 so far for this season.
But while the number isn’t necessarily headline news, the quality of the sides Rangers top is:
Wolfsburg, Feyenoord, Eintracht, Lazio, Porto, Rennes and CSKA, to name just 7 of the eye-catching names rated below Steven Gerrard’s men.
But it gets better:
For all Celtic’s apparent attacking prowess this season, and topping their group, it’s Rangers who actually come out on top between the two in offensive numbers, particularly shots:
11.8 PG to Celtic’s 10.
Rangers also top Roma, Malmo, AZ, Porto, Man Utd, Sevilla and a host of others.
Don’t believe even for a second this isn’t an attacking Rangers. It does it even more than Man Utd does.
