Overview[edit]

Rangers played a total of 50 competitive matches during the 1919–20 season, this was the first full season since the end of the First World War and clubs who were asked to retire for geographical reasons during the war returned along with the Scottish Cup, which had been withdrawn.

The team won the league championship with thirty-one wins from there forty-two matches, however the Scottish Cup campaign was ended at the hands of Albion Rovers, it took a second replay to separate the sides and a 2-0 win for Rovers saw them go through to the 1920 Scottish Cup final.
