Rangers Fans Light Up World’s Tallest Building In Dubai To Celebrate Title Triumph

Rangers celebrated their Scottish Premiership title success as a group of fans arranged for a spectacular light show on the world's tallest building, Dubai's Burj Khalifa.

Steven Gerrard's side sealed the title back in March but completed an unbeaten league season in style by beating Aberdeen 4-0 at the weekend.

And a group of Rangers fans based in the UAE showed their appreciation for their team's 55th league title success by organising the flashy tribute on Sunday, beamed onto the side of the 2,717-foot building and complete with suitably rousing music.

While the video of the moment was shared on Rangers' official social media accounts, apparently the tribute was set up by a group of Gers supporters.

The light show beamed a short video of celebrating players, the club badge, a count up to 55 league titles - as well as the image of Gerrard himself - onto the vast skyscraper.

Presumably any Dubai-based Celtic supporters were rapidly closing their curtains as the tribute kicked off at, you guessed it, 5.55pm UK time.

Gerrard's team drew just six of 38 league games this season, winning the other 32 for a total of 102 points. Captain James Tavernier, Scotland's PFA Player of the Year, lifted the trophy on Saturday as Celtic's run of nine league titles in a row officially ended.

Twenty-four hours later came the light show on the Middle East skyscraper, which became the world's tallest building when it surpassed the Taipei 101 in 2009.

Boasting 160 floors, the hotel is over half a mile in height. It is also Dubai's main tourist attraction and - for a brief period on Sunday - also became the main centre of attention for a lot of interested observers in Glasgow.

Well, one half of Glasgow anyway, as Rangers fans paid tribute to the "phenomenal" and "outstanding" show on social media.
