Glasgow Rangers were crowned Scottish football champions for the first time since 2011, following a 0–0 draw by their great rivals Celtic in Dundee, who had won the previous nine titles.
After their win (3-0) against Saint-Miren on Saturday, only one point was missing for a team coached by iconic former Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard to secure the trophy. Celtic Glasgow have 20 points with six games to play after winning the draw at Dundee (8th) and therefore can no longer advance.

The title is the crown of a season in which Rangers have been undefeated. They have won 28 of their 32 matches, including all 16 matches at home. It is also the most successful club return to the helm in Scottish history (55th title), a receivership after nine years and an administrative relegation that saw them relegate to the Fourth Division.
The club was revamped, allowing Englishman Steven Gerrard to come and start his coaching career in 2018. This Scottish Premiership title is the first trophy won by Gerrard as a coach, after a busy playing career with Liverpool (1 Champions League, 1 UEFA Cup, 2 FA Cups and 3 League Cups).
A victory beyond health restrictions
