The four founders of Rangers - brothers Moses and Peter McNeil, Peter Campbell and William McBeath - met in March 1872 at West End Park, (now known as Kelvingrove Park). Rangers first match, in May that year, was a goalless friendly draw with Callander on Glasgow Green under the name Glasgow Argyle F.C. In 1873, the club held its first annual meeting and staff were elected. By 1876 Rangers had its first international player, with Moses McNeil representing Scotland in a match against Wales. In 1877 Rangers reached a Scottish Cup final; after drawing the first game, Rangers refused to turn up for the replay and the cup was awarded to Vale of Leven. Rangers won the Glasgow Merchants Charity Cup the following year against Vale of Leven 2-1, their first major cup. The first-ever Old Firm match took place in 1888, the year of Celtics establishment. Rangers lost 5-2 in a friendly to a team composed largely of guest players from Hibernian.
The 1890-91 season saw the inception of the Scottish Football League, and Rangers, by then playing at the first Ibrox Stadium, were one of ten original members. The clubs first-ever league match, on 16 August 1890, resulted in a 5-2 victory over Heart of Midlothian. After finishing joint-top with Dumbarton, a play-off held at Cathkin Park finished 2-2 and the title was shared for the only time in its history. Rangers first-ever Scottish Cup win came in 1894 after a 3-1 final victory over rivals Celtic. By the start of the 20th century, Rangers had won two league titles and three Scottish Cups.
