Former Liverpool and England captain Steven Gerrard, who took charge at Ibrox in 2018 has led Rangers FC to win the Scottish Premiership for the first time in 10 years, following Celtic's failure to beat Dundee United on Sunday.

Rangers who are unbeaten in the league with six matches to spare picked up a 3-0 victory against St. Mirren on Saturday to maintain their 100% home record and set up Sunday's clinch. The title means that Rangers have now extended their world record tally to 55, one more than Northern Ireland's Linfield. Celtic, are unable to become the first club in Scotland to win the league for the 10th time in a row.

The club's last league title came in 2011 before diving into a financial crisis which led to their eventual demotion to Scotland's bottom tier in 2012 after entering administration. They returned back to the top-flight five years ago and have now clinched the title, their first league match as champions will be against Celtic in the Old Firm derby on March 21
