The forward, wrapped in the flag of his Colombia homeland sneaked up on his manager and poured celebratory champagne over the suited Gerrard, as Rangers lifted the silverware to round off the season with a 4-0 win over Aberdeen.

"That’s another fine for him for sure,” the manager joked on Sky Sports when asked about his striker. “It feels good, and it’s been a while since I had the smell of champagne - everyone know what it smells like but it’s been so long I’m enjoying it.”
