Carlos Cuellar: "Even in the farthest places there are Rangers fans"


Carlos Cuéllar (Madrid, 1981) had the time of his life with the Glasgow Rangers. Record games in one campaign (65), two titles, League Cup and Scottish Cup, and the award for best player in the league, something that has never been done for a center back.

Few Spanish players have been able to internalize the feeling of ‘Gers’ in such a short time Cuellarthis Wednesday at Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan as another Rangers fan and attend EFE 24 hours before the final match Eintracht Frankfurtthe Scots could be crowned after 50 years.

“It’s a matter of pride, especially for the bad years that have happened, with the administrative downturn. From there, to compete again, to be at the best level in Europe, to fight for a final, to compete in the league, to win cups.This is a more than appropriate award for the fans and for the history of guardswho are unworthy to spend several years dancing in the lower divisions of Scotland ”.

Cuéllar also spoke about the large number of fans going to Seville, something that did not surprise him. “For the fan there and for the player it’s just normal. In the year I played there you received a lot of letters from New Zealand, from Australia, from anywhere in the world. I remember a preseason in Germany, I think it was in Düsseldorf, and you played against teams from the Third or Fourth division and there were probably 10,000-15,000 people from the Rangers. People arranged their vacations to get into the preseason, “

And Cuéllar, who knows the team and the fans, perfectly defined it. “I always say, for them it’s more than football. It’s history, it was religion back in the day. It’s that feeling of belonging, since I was little. Then there have been a lot of immigrants who left Scotland, who went to abroad and went on to show that love for the club and creating his rock.And anywhere in the world.We toured the United States and there were people from guards. You come to distant places and are told “but there is no life there” and are a fan of Rangers “commented Cuellar
