Video: Range Rover carrying Steven Gerrard knocks over a police officer as Gers boss films his arrival at Ibrox

Rangers fans were in party mode ahead of their game against St Mirren

Steven Gerrard arrived at Ibrox Stadium ahead of today’s clash against St Mirren knowing that a win for Rangers tonight would mean that they will be within a point of securing the league title. The Glasgow outfit are almost certain to dethrone Celtic after a streak of nine years in a row, to clinch the Scottish Premiership in a season where they are still unbeaten in the league, and in Europe.

Their thoroughly dominant performances made the Scottish first division a monopoly this season, as a jubilant mob celebrating with flares and smoke bombs greeted Gerrard today – when the Rangers head coach was making his way into the stadium in his car.

Gerrard was filming his reception before he went into the Ibrox, as the Range Rover he was travelling on knocked over a policeman amidst the celebratory chaos (scroll down to see video below).

The unfortunate policeman was helped up by his peers and normal service resumed – as they went on to successfully control the intimidating sea of masses outside while Rangers played St Mirren in the Ibrox.

Goals from Ryan Kent, Alfredo Morelos and Ianis Hagi secured the three points for Rangers on the night, as Gerrard’s men went a whopping twenty-one (you read that right) points clear of Celtic placed second.

Rangers will focus on their Europa League duties against Slavia Praha in the next couple of weeks and then look forward to meeting their city rivals for the latest rendition of the Old Firm Derby.

Celtic have a game in hand but the league title is well beyond their reach, and a loss to Dundee United tomorrow will mean that Rangers will make the short trip to Celtic Park in two weeks – as the new, and definitely deserving champions of Scotland.
