Rangers won today without playing, benefiting from a draw by rival Celtic, their first title in 10 years in the Scottish football league, after a period marked by the bankruptcy and restart of the club.
It took a decade for the club to ‘reborn’ with more titles, now 55, with a gradual growth since former Liverpool star Steven Gerrard took over in 2018/19 the technical command of his football team.
The crown of glory arrived today, without having to enter the field, with the team benefiting from the null between Dundee and Celtic, which leaves the Rangers with 20 more points and when they only have to play six rounds (18 points).
The Rangers crisis and their descent to the fourth division in the face of accumulated debts in 2012, ‘helped’ the uninterrupted dominance of rival Celtic, prevented this season from adding their tenth consecutive title.
For Steven Gerrard, he is the first title player in a national league, in a playing career in which he was European champion for Liverpool, among other titles, but he never managed the English league at the service of the ‘reds’.
The next Rangers game will be a kind of consecration, with the team facing off against Celtic, the great rival, in the classic known as ‘Old Firm’, opposing the two biggest clubs, in the same city of Glasgow, Scotland.
The Rangers now have 55 champion titles, followed by Celtic, with 51, while Aberdeen, Heart of Midlothian and Hibernian, are far behind, with four.
