Steven Gerrard And Alfredo Morelos Celebrate Rangers’ Title Win With Fans

Steven Gerrard raised a triumphant fist to Rangers fans who surrounded his car as he was driven into the club training ground for a league title celebration.

Once he entered, the Rangers manager was able to join up with his players - including Alfredo Morelos wearing a Union Jack hat and holding a giant Colombian flag - as they celebrated their Scottish Premiership win in front of the fans outside the gates.

Flares were visible, while Joe Aribo emptied a beer over the fired-up Morelos's head.

Celtic's 0-0 draw at Dundee United on Sunday, coming on the back of Rangers' 3-0 win over St Mirren the day before, made it certain that Rangers are Scottish champions for 2020/21.

Gerrard had been showing off his dance moves in the Ibrox dressing room after the victory against St Mirren.

However he looked fresh-faced as he accepted the congratulations of fans, while stewards guided cheering Rangers supporters back to make room for Gerrard's car.

Each of the Rangers players was wearing a '55' T-shirt - a reference to the fact this is Rangers 55th top-flight league title, ending Celtic's run of nine league championships in a row. It's also Rangers' first major honour since their 2012 collapse and rebirth.

There was plenty of noise, jubilation and singing outside the Rangers training ground - just as there had been when players ran and saluted the fans outside after the St Mirren victory.

Morelos looked particularly revved up - pumping his fists as the Rangers fans outside sang his name.

The players understandably had a few beers on the go, one of which midfielder Aribo chose to shower striker Morelos with, plus a few bottles of champagne were being sprayed.

Rangers travel to face Slavia Prague in their Europa League last-16 first leg in midweek. However their next Scottish Premiership game is actually a trip to Celtic Park.

Gerrard's side have an unbeaten league record to protect, having won 28 and drawn four of their league games this season. But with the title mathematically settled, there is little else to play for.

Nobody is necessarily expecting a guard of honour at Celtic Park. So perhaps it's best Rangers do their celebrating now.
