The Most Successful Clubs In World Football By Major Trophies Won

Rangers had the chance to add the Europa League to their huge list of honours, but it hasn't stopped the club being one of the most successful clubs in the history of football.

Aaron Ramsey's miss in the penalty shootout against Eintracht Frankfurt on Wednesday night denied the Scottish giants their chance of winning the Europa League for the first time.

It would have been their second success in Europe, having won the Cup Winners' Cup back in 1972, but it wasn't to be, as Frankfurt walked off with the beautiful trophy.

Giovanni van Bronckhorst's team could yet add to their tally of honours this weekend, when they face Hearts in the Scottish Cup Final, and it is already quite the tally.

The Gers are the second most successful club in the world, with 116 major trophies in their history, and Celtic aren't too far behind them.

It's major trophies only though, so it doesn't include any of the teams' successes in lower divisions or even wins in Super Cups and the like.

With Celtic having won the league this season, Rangers really could do with winning the Scottish Cup this weekend, or their rivals could soon be breathing down their necks.

Both of them will be eyeing up Al Ahly's current lead, and believing they could be the ones to usurp the Egyptian's in the top spot.
