Trivia

  Rangers declined to play in a Scottish Cup replay after an unsuccessful protest with regard to the first match against Vale of Leven.

  The club did win their first trophy however, beating Vale in the final of the Glasgow Merchants' Charity Cup.

  Rangers played Third Lanark in November 1878 under 'electric' spotlights at the first Cathkin Park.
