Scottish League Cup

Scottish League Cup
Since the Scottish League Cup was introduced in 1947, Rangers have won it a grand total of 27 times. Nearest rivals are Celtic who have won it only 14 times.

Rangers won the first ever League Cup in the 1946/47 season with a 4-0 victory over Aberdeen. The first of many classic finals between the two teams over the years.

The Scottish League Cup has been known as several different names due to sponsorship. It was known as the Bell's League Cup, Skol Cup, Coca Cola Cup, CIS Insurance Cup, Co-operative Insurance Cup, and currently Scottish Communities League Cup.

During the time it was known as the Skol Cup, Rangers had one of their best spells. At that time, the winning team would be presented with a 'Skol Cup' as well as the League Cup itself.

When the Skol Cup sponsorship deal ended, Rangers got to keep the Skol Cup trophy as they had won it more than any other team.

Rangers last won the competition in 2011 with a 2-1 victory over Celtic. Current holders are Kilmarnock who beat Celtic in this year's final.

Winners of the competition used to gain entry to the UEFA Cup but this no longer happens. Rangers roll of honour in the competition is as follows:

1947, 1949, 1961, 1962, 1964, 1965, 1971, 1976, 1978, 1979, 1982, 1984, 1985, 1987, 1988, 1989, 1991, 1993, 1994, 1997, 1999, 2002, 2003, 2005, 2008, 2010, 2011.
