Rangers to be subject of Amazon Prime streaming service documentary

Rangers will be subject of a new documentary through online streaming service Amazon Prime – who also screen popular documentary series All Or Nothing featuring Manchester City, Spurs and Arsenal.

The Ibrox club has confirmed Prime Video has won exclusive rights to Friday’s digital release of factual feature film Rangers72 – a look at the club’s only European trophy success.

Colin Stein, and a Willie Johnston double, defeated Dynamo Moscow in Barcelona 50 years ago and the documentary by City Talking and Giuseppe De Luca focuses on the players affectionately known as the Barca Bears.

Rangers’ commercial director James Bisgrove said: “The remarkable achievements of the ‘Barca Bears’ in 1972 will forever be remembered as a defining moment in the club’s rich 150 year history.

“This May marked the 50th anniversary of their famous victory and it felt fitting for us to reach the 2022 UEFA Europa League Final, with Rangers supporters following the club in record numbers across Europe on this brilliant journey back to Spain.
