International Federation of Football History & Statistics Rankings

The International Federation of Football History and Statistics have released their club world rankings.

Here are their top 15 club teams in the world:

1. Manchester United (England)
2. Glasgow Rangers (Scotland)
3. Chelsea FC (England)
4. Bayern Munich (Germany)
5. Barcelona (Spain)
6. AS Roma (Italy)
7. Liverpool (England)
8. Arsenal (England)
9. Boca Juniors (Argentina)
10. Inter Milan (Italy)
11. Sao Paulo (Brazil)
12. Fiorentina (Italy)
13. Fluminense (Brazil)
14. Olympique Lyon (France)
15. AC Milan (Italy)

I have a few issues with this list. First of all, Rangers as number 2 in the world?? Are you kidding me? Rangers were just eliminated in the UEFA tournament, and aren't even the best team in Scotland in my opinion (that honor goes to Celtic). 

Also, no Real Madrid in the top 15 but Barcelona is 5th?? Doesn't make sense to me. I also feel that Inter is a better team then Arsenal and Liverpool and should be higher on the list for winning Serie A.  Juventus was also 95th on the list.

ok good jokers i am a Bacerlona fan but i must ask one question to you guys where is Real Madrid? is it not enough for winning the spanish league? and Rangers second this must be a British press maybe you can help also by celtic going third in the list well i guess it is just a list Juventus 95? crazy better start dreaming of Hearts forth or maybe first twenty should only be english leagues

Real Madrid was 39th on the list!

This to me is absurd, as winning La Liga (which is probably the 2nd or 3rd best league in the world) should get you in the top 5 at least.

these rankings are obviously ridiculous, but i think a lot of the purely formulated rankings will be horribly off so it's no big surprise

i also don't think liverpool should be 7th, they haven't been doing very well lately at all

The International Federation of Football History and Statistics is totally a joke. Don't even take these guys serious. Their lists are just b.s. for years.

I agree, which is why I started up my own rankings
