It’s party time on the blue side of Glasgow with Rangers sealing their first Scottish Premiership title in ten years.
Celtic's draw with Dundee United on Sunday confirmed the trophy would be leaving Celtic Park after nine successive titles for the Hoops.
Steven Gerrard’’s side have broken records aplenty on their way to winning the league, the earliest a team has ever done so.
Rangers have picked up a staggering 88 points from a possible 96, winning all but four games and conceding just nine times in the process.
Celtic sit a mammoth 20 points behind their arch enemies with their push for ten in a row left in tatters.
They knew only a win would prolong the inevitable, but were held at Tannadice, with Rangers fans also taking the opportunity to aim a dig at the fallen champs.

It has been a matter of when not if for Gerrard’s side, particularly after their routine 3-0 win over St Mirren made it almost a done deal.
The win sparked wild scenes of celebration in the Ibrox dressing rooms, with players toasting their successes across social media.
After dancing and singing to ‘I’m Feeling It’ by Sunset Bros, the Rangers manager took centre stage in the dressing room celebrations.
Drink was poured onto the floor allowing the Liverpool – and now Rangers legend – to launch himself across the floor before lifting a makeshift trophy – with the real ceremony set to take place in the coming weeks.

Their confirmation as champions comes just two weeks before the Old Firm derby when Celtic could be forced to give their rivals a guard of honour.
Reports claim that Celtic have yet to decide on whether they will keep with tradition, although they may opt to follow Rangers’ suit who opted not to during the 2018-19 season.
