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.

1. James Tavernier
The numbers sum up the captain's fantastic season. 17 goals from right-back, 12 league assists, an infallible engine and a key lieutenant of Steven Gerrard on the pitch in managing games, the previously maligned defender has turned the tables on his detractors and is thoroughly deserving of lifting the silverware in May.

In-game nous has been pivotal to Rangers' season, the Northern Irish record holder has kept the middle of the park ticking with composure and class. Always free and reliable, Davis' placement facilitates Glen Kamara's dynamism and movement around the park. Veteran's experience has managed the majority of games out properly - be that retaining leads or increasing tempo for a late push at St Mirren or Livingston. Photo: Alan Harvey - SNS Group
3. Allan McGregor
Rangers' driving force has roared them through the season from the back and simply wouldn't let the team lose.. The 39-year-old's reliability and formidable ability has ensured the remarkable defensive record stayed in single figures in the league when he has been infrequently called upon.

The weight of expectation is on the Romanian - not just because of his name but because of his impact last season too. A hero in his homeland he has played a key role at crucial times for Rangers despite not being a staple starter in Steven Gerrard's plan. Hit form just before Christmas and propelled Rangers through the crucial festive period and will only get better with more confidence from league win he had a significant say in. Photo: RUSSELL CHEYNE
