Video: Covid pleas ignored as Rangers fans in Northern Ireland celebrate title win

Fans along the Shankill Road appear to flout Covid-19 guidelines as crowds gather to celebrate

There was joy for Rangers fans across Northern Ireland after the club reclaimed the Scottish Premiership title for the first time in 10 years - but pleas to stick to the Covid-19 regulations fell on deaf ears in west Belfast.

A number of fans along the Shankill Road appeared to flout the health and safety guidelines after a cavalcade of Rangers supporters released red, white and blue flares, set off fireworks, beeped their horns and waved flags as hundreds gathered on the streets.

Steven Gerrard’s side, who beat St Mirren 3-0 on Saturday, needed Celtic to drop points at Dundee United on Sunday to confirm their coronation.
