Trivia

  With the club already growing too big for Burnbank, Rangers moved to Kinning Park (south of West Scotland Street - next to the present Subway station) for the start of the 1876-77 season.

  The oldest surving team photo is also from this season. Please see the gallery below.

  Rangers received a bye in both the 3rd Round and Semi-Final of the Scottish Cup this season!
