Revealed: The six key players behind Rangers' title win

Rangers have won the SPFL Premiership after a remarkable campaign to restore the Scottish league silverware to the Ibrox trophy room.

Steven Gerrard’s side re-wrote the record books at times with some formidable form and went over a year without losing a single league match – and only falling once in the Betfred Cup to St Mirren.

James Tavernier struck an impressive haul of goals from right-back before injury curtailed his campaign but the captain – alongside mainstays Allan McGregor and Connor Goldson – played a huge part in the season’s success with the club’s defensive record.

There were also impressive statistics at the opposite end with Rangers registering an 8-0 win over Hamilton the highlight to lead the scoring charts in the league.

As Ibrox celebrates title number 55, we look at some of the key figures behind the on-field success for Steven Gerrard’s side in achieving Rangers’ first league title in a decade in season 2020-21.
