Rangers told they’d finish ’38th in 20-team Premier League’ after Liverpool loss

Rangers have been told they would finish ‘38th’ in the Premier League after losing 2-0 to Liverpool in the Champions League.

Fans of English football’s top flight quickly took to social media to troll the Scottish Premiership giants after their group stage defeat. Liverpool looked relatively comfortable throughout the tie as they netted goals from a wondrous Trent Alexander-Arnold free-kick and Mohamed Salah’s second-half penalty.

But despite a late push which could have seen them nick a consolation goal at the end, Rangers were outmatched for the duration of the clash at Anfield. And the disappointing result triggered an old debate about the quality of Scottish football.

One fan took to Twitter to write: “Rangers would finish around 38th in the 20 team English Premier League.”

Another shrewd observer wrote: “Rangers would get relegated from the Championship let alone the Premier League! That was dreadful.”

A third added: “If Rangers were in the Premier League they would get relegated like them finishing their champions league season with 0 points.”

Where do you think Rangers would finish in the Premier League? Let us know in the comments section.

Rangers are currently second in the Scottish Premiership and two points behind old foes Celtic in first. That is arguably an indication of just how far Scottish football still has to go, with the side winning a whopping 55 domestic titles but yet to pick up any points in Europe this season.

They were on the receiving end of a 4-0 hammering in their opening Champions League game of the season at Ajax. And they did not fare much better in the second fixture at home to Napoli, where they conceded three after going down to ten men.
