The Ibrox side were officially crowned champions after rivals Celtic failed to defeat Dundee United on Sunday afternoon, drawing 0-0 at Tannadice.

It’s title number 55 for Rangers, who finish top of the pile for the first time in ten years, and represents the completion of a comeback which started with the four-year odyssey in the lower leagues.
