Watch Rangers boss Steven Gerrard given a hero's welcome to Ibrox ahead of SPFL Premiership match with St Mirren as fans wave flares and flags
Fans poured onto Edmiston Drive with flags, banners and flares at lunchtime to kick off league title celebrations early – despite national lockdown regulations banning mass gatherings and Rangers still needing four points to make mathematically certain of a 55th title.
The crowds roared the players and coaches’ through the street and into the stadium – and online footage has emerged of two cars negotiating the supporters’ scrum with one said to be driven by Rangers manager Steven Gerrard
In another, red smoke envelopes the vehicle forcing it to stop yards from the ground with the driver unable to proceed, before being waved through the Broomloan Road end gates.
Rangers can win the league if they defeat St Mirren and Celtic fail to win against Dundee United. Gerrard sat the game out after accepting a one-match ban from the SFA.
