History of Home ties at Ibrox

Sharing is caring!

The Rangers certainly are a lucky team when it comes to home ties in cup games.

Not including wee ditty Cups like the Petrofac, their entire Cup history is below.

You can go to Wikipedia and check yourself if you wish.

All in all the Newco has been drawn 40 times including their shock pairing with Dunfermline overnight.

In this time they have played just 10 games away from home losing twice.

They have played a further 6 matches at neutral venues, falling out of the Cup at the Semi Final stage at 5 of them as well as losing the Scottish Cup to Hibernian a few years back.

Their homes record features only 3 losses out of 24 matches, those being to Inverness in 2012, Raith in 2014 and St. Johnstone in 2015.

This, of course, means lots of extra revenue for the cash strapped Ibrox outfit.

Since their financial troubles worsened to critical levels in 2015, they have played only Airdrie away and Kilmarnock in a replay.

This means that 13 of the last 16 times they have been drawn they have played at home.

20 pounds a ticket x 50,000 fans is a million pounds.

With money split evenly after expenses, the cash cow has made a cool 6.5 million quid in this time.

I wonder if the dramatic surge in home draws had not happened if they would still be here?

But that’s a hot topic…
