It would not be an exaggeration to say that it’s been an amazing time to be a Rangers fan of late.
The Glasgow outfit are well on their way to clinch the Scottish Premiership title after a nine-year-long wait, and the points table could not read any sweeter – Steven Gerrard’s men are currently a whopping fifteen points clear of their eternal rivals Celtic with a game in hand.
The title is likely to change hands after Celtic won it for the past nine seasons in a row, and a set of jubilant Rangers supporters made sure to rub the humiliation into their Old Firm Derby rivals’ faces with a massive banner outside Celtic Park.
The massive banner (see it below) outside Celtic’s home ground read “Champions” while accompanied by the Rangers club crest, serving as a larger-than-life reminder that Rangers are marching towards a fate that has not been in doubt for quite a while now.
Rangers have been dominant both in the Scottish Premiership and in the UEFA Europa League, as they are still unbeaten in both competitions – while it has been anything but the same for their city rivals.
Celtic have had a season to forget to say the very least of it, as their issues with consistency and the large gap between them and their rivals has cost head coach Neil Lennon’s job.
Rangers could rub further salt in their rivals’ wounds by heading to Celtic Park as champions when the two sides meet later this month.
Only seven more points for the league leaders would mathematically finish off the competition – should Gerrard’s men win their next two games against Livingston and St Mirren or draw one and Celtic drop points to Dundee United – they will be crowned as champions of Scotland as early as this weekend.
Rangers could either win the Scottish Premiership on enemy territory – or go there as champions – either of which is certain to cause thousands of daggers to be stabbed into Celtic hearts.
