Part A. Reading comprehension

Read the following text:


I'd say myself that Glasgow is a crazy football city; there aren't many Glaswegians who don't support one or other of our two big professional teams, Rangers or Celtic. And the football results in the evening papers are a lot more important to many people than what's happening in the rest of the world. Both Rangers and Celtic have been around for about a century, and they have helped to make football popular in the rest of Scotland. Well, when the two clubs were founded they both had religious connections, which probably sounds a funny thing for football. Rangers -that's the older club- was started in 1873, and that was protestant. But Celtic was started by Catholics in 1888. The club is called Celtic but it's the same word as Celtic, you see, and the Irish are descended from the Celts, so the Celtic team's name shows its Irish connections. I don't know how long there have been Irish living in Glasgow, but a long time. And one of the Celtic's original purposes was to raise money for poor Catholic children in the city who needed meals and clothes. For many years Celtic only had Catholic players and Rangers only had Protestant players. And the supporters of the two clubs were divided on religious lines, too. But that's changed now.
