Rangers were confirmed as Scottish Premiership champions after Celtic failed to win away to Dundee United today
Sky News is reporting that Rangers have won their 55th Scottish top-flight title after Celtic’s 0-0 draw against Dundee United at Tannadice on Sunday officially ended their bid for 10-in-a-row.
Celtic needed to take maximum points from their trip to Dundee United after Rangers’ 3-0 win over St Mirren on Saturday took them to the brink of securing their first Premiership title since 2011.
To compound matters for Celtic, a plane carrying a banner reading “Can you see us now?! #55titles”, presumably arranged by Rangers supporters, flew over the stadium just minutes into the match.
It will be Steven Gerrard’s first trophy as Rangers manager after taking over in Govan in the summer of 2018.
He and his players were met by thousands of Rangers supporters at Ibrox ahead of the game on Saturday as crowds gathered to let off flares and hang banners near the stadium, breaking lockdown restrictions.
Rangers will now travel to Czech Republic in midweek ahead of Thursday’s Europa League last-16 first-leg match against Slavia Prague.
The Scottish Football Association announced last week that Scottish Cup fixtures are set to resume this season, with Rangers hosting Cove Rangers and Celtic welcoming Arbroath or Falkirk to Celtic Park on April 3.
Sky Sports’ Graeme Souness: “It’s been a long time coming. Celtic have had a period of domination which has been uncomfortable for Rangers’ supporters. They’ve been fantastic all season and they thoroughly deserve it. I just wish I was in Glasgow right now. There’s part of me which wishes Celtic had won today so that Rangers could win it at Parkhead next week.”
