Recent weeks have focused a lot more on the business side of Rangers, but the heart of the club has always been in its fierce rivalry with Celtic. Globalization and the evolution of religious tensions have changed the rivalry in recent years (former New York Red Bulls and Toronto manager Mo Johnston famously became the rare Catholic to play for Rangers in 1989), but it remains tense to this day. Today, of course, it involves multiple Americans— Maurice Edu, Alejandro Bedoya, Carlos Bocanegra, (and, in a non-playing role, Dominic Cervi) in addition to past names like Claudio Reyna and Damarcus Beasley.
Vice recently put out five-part documentary (totaling about 45 minutes) on the rivalry today. It’s worth your time if you have a free hour and is conveniently broken into shorter segments. I will provide a warning that there is some foul language at times (not that that should be surprising).
