Today Rangers FC clinched the Scottish Premiership title for a record-breaking 55th time, as part of what has been one of the most remarkable seasons in recent history.
“On behalf of Orange County SC and our fans, I want to congratulate the Rangers organization for this exceptional achievement,” said Orange County SC Owner and CEO James Keston. “When we began discussions with Rangers two years ago, the senior leadership from Stewart Robertson and Steven Gerrard on down made clear that Rangers were a world-class club, both on the field and commercially, headed back to the upper echelons of European football. They have been absolutely true to their word. We are proud to be their partner and look forward to being at Ibrox for the raising of many trophies in the coming years.”
Orange County SC are proud of our strong relationship with Rangers FC and are delighted to see them back as champions after a long wait. Our partnership is based on shared values, on and off the field, and we are pleased to see our friends in Glasgow enjoy a season of success both domestically and in Europe. We are looking forward to continuing to grow our one of a kind partnership and to develop the next generation of champions.
“I would like to sincerely congratulate our world-class partner club Rangers and all their fans for winning their 55th Scottish league title!!”, said Orange County SC President of Soccer Operations Oliver Wyss. “What a massive accomplishment and so well deserved! Rangers have set a new standard of excellence and we proudly celebrate this special championship alongside our friends and partners in Glasgow! Simply the best!!”
Last season saw a number of firsts for the two clubs, as Rangers FC sent three players on loan to Orange County SC to compete in the USL Championship. It also saw the first international transfer between the two clubs, with 18-year-old goalkeeper Aaron Cervantes joining Rangers FC on a permanent transfer.
