    1. The Fall and Rise of Rangers: The Fall

    Rangers didn’t just win the Scottish Premiership this year, they absolutely obliterated the field, unbeaten at the time of writing and with the added bonus of stopping Celtic win their tenth title in a row. It’s been quite a journey back to the top, a journey they started from the very bottom. Over the course of the next four episodes you will hear the full story about why Rangers fell in the first place, how they climbed back to the summit of Scottish Football, and a rookie manager with no experience of the Scottish game, whatsoever, secured their first league title in 10 years.
    Hear from the players, the managers, and the chairmen as well as the fans, the journalists, and the reporters who watched this story unfurl from beginning to end.
