Blue heaven: Rangers players celebrate confirmation of their title win after Celtic’s dropped points yesterday

The outpouring of unbridled joy as Rangers football club supporters celebrated their long-awaited title win yesterday was entirely understandable, if not, quite within social distancing rules.

In the 10 years since the Scottish League trophy last landed at Ibrox, those supporters have borne the brunt of sanctions imposed for financial rule-breaking by a previous boardroom regime.

Relegated to the lowest tier of Scottish football, they remained loyal to the club and true to their motto, continued to follow Rangers on that long journey from far-flung Scottish football outposts back to the very top yesterday.

Celtic fans will not view it the same way after missing out on an historic 10 titles in a row.

But when their disappointment, and the Rangers euphoria, eventually subsides, blue and green must surely agree that Scottish football is a better place for having become competitive again after the one-club procession of the last nine years.
