CELEBRITIES and sports fans alike have been congratulating Rangers over their Scottish Premiership success after it was sealed today.
Celtic’s 0-0 draw with Dundee United confirmed the Gers’ first top flight title since 2011, with the celebrations already having started yesterday following their own 3-0 win at home to St Mirren.
The jubilant scenes look set to continue today – with fans gathering at the club’s Ibrox Stadium almost immediately after the final whistle at Tannadice.
They’ve also been setting off fireworks and smoke bombs on George Square despite warnings from cops not to congregate due to Covid regulations
Celebs – Rangers-supporting and neutral – have also been reacting to the title win on social media.
A Place in the Sun’s Jean Johansson, wife of ex-Light Blues striker Jonatan, tweeted: “It’s a beautiful day”, adding red, white and blue love hearts.
Rangers-daft porn star Lana Wold wrote “We did it. 55.”
She also posted a TikTok video which asked “What is the best thing to happen in Glasgow in 10 years?”
It’s a beautiful day ❤️🤍💙

It then flipped to her in her Gers kit, popping champagne and with ’55’ balloons and Union Jacks in the background.
Scots wrestling legend Drew McIntyre has made no secret of his love for the blue half of Glasgow.
And he was quick to congratulate his heroes, tweeting: “We share a story of ups and downs, working harder than anyone else to get back on the path to championship glory. Congratulations to @RangersFC, winners of the Scottish Premiership. This custom @WWE Championship is YOURS!!”
And there was an unlikely supporter in fellow grappler Triple H, who replied: “Well said. Congratulations to the winners of the Scottish Premiership,@RangersFC !! #Champion55.”
Ex-Gers flop midfielder Joey Barton said: “Congratulations to
@RangersFC on title number 55. Good to see the club back in its rightful position.”
And English Premier League champions Liverpool even took time out of their preparations to congratulate their former player Steven Gerrard.
Replying to Rangers’ own tweet, their club account wrote: “Congratulations from all of us at #LFC to Steven Gerrard and his team on winning the Scottish Premier League title”.
Nathan Evans, who shot to fame recently with his sea shanties songs, tweeted a video of Rangers anthem Simply The Best and wrote: “This song is now well and truly never leaving my head!! .. must have listened to it at least 55 times today.”

Congrats to Steven Gerrard on winning the League with Rangers in Scotland & ending a decade of Celtic dominance.

Arsenal-supporting GMB host Piers Morgan said: “Congrats to Steven Gerrard on winning the League with Rangers in Scotland & ending a decade of Celtic dominance. He was the real deal as a player and looks the real deal as a manager too.”
Meanwhile, grinning Kris Boyd couldn’t resist a dig at Jackie McNamara as Rangers were crowned champions of Scotland.
Old Firm legends Boydy and McNamara were pundits on Sky Sports as Celtic drew 0-0 with Dundee United to hand Gers the title.
Former Hoops captain McNamara claimed in October that Rangers “aren’t a good team” despite winning 2-0 at Parkhead.
And Boyd was quick to remind McNamara of his controversial claim at full-time.
While Chris Sutton has congratulated Rangers on ‘one-in-a-row’ after clinching their 55th top flight title.
Gers players have got their official title party underway after yesterday’s celebrations, and were pictured with a ‘Champions 55’ banner at the training ground.
