As you might have heard, Rangers were sent packing from the Europa League just 317 days before the final after losing across two legs to a team that finished fourth in the Luxembourg National Division last season.

The 2-0 defeat against Progres Niederkorn on Tuesday evening was quite possibly the worst in Rangers’ history, and it was made all the more ignominious by the adorably humble programme notes proffered forth by the Luxembourg side before kick-off…

“We know we’re not very good, but we’ll do our best”.

Just to put the enormity of Rangers’ atrociousness in perspective, fourth-place Progres only ended up qualifying for the Europa League because the Luxembourg cup winners (the mighty F91 Dudelange) also won the league title, thus handing them a qualification spot.

It’s hard not to chuckle.

    Little puppies, adorable!

    Let’s get real…

    Rangers of Glasgow were beaten by Luxembourg’s 4th best team.

    It’s a beautiful country, Luxembourg. But as a country, it actually has less people living there than Glasgow.

    Yes, less people are in the whole country of Luxembourg than there are in the Scottish city of Glasgow.

    Yet the 4th best team in Luxembourg beat Rangers.

    Scottish football. WTF.

    THIS is what Rangers fans should listen to now. Listen closely and you will find some parallels between those sweet lyrics and the club. Too good I found out about these similarities.
