Scottish Cup

Scottish Cup
Rangers have won the Scottish FA Cup a total of 33 times in their history, two behind Celtic. The first time the team lifted the old trophy was in 1894, the last was in 2009.

The early years of the Scottish Cup were dominated by Queen's Park and Vale Of Leven. Queen's Park won the first ever competition in 1874, and the trophy changed hands between themselves and Vale of Leven up until 1883 when Dumbarton stopped the trend.

Queen's Park won it four times in a row at the start of the competition before Vale of Leven dominated with six in a row. Queen's Park bounced back though and won it a further five in a row.

During Vale of Leven's six in a row, Rangers were the runners up FIVE times, although one of them was a walkover which means basically that Rangers forfeited the match.

Rangers first victory was a 3-1 victory over Celtic in 1893/94 at Hampden. Rangers won the trophy five times in the 2000's, the last of them in 2008/2009.

Rangers 33 victories came in the following years:

1894, 1897, 1898, 1903, 1928, 1930, 1932, 1934, 1935, 1936, 1948, 1949, 1950, 1953, 1960, 1962, 1963, 1964, 1966, 1973, 1976, 1978, 1979, 1981, 1992, 1993, 1996, 1999, 2000, 2002, 2003, 2008, 2009.
