Gerrard making a really weird quote: "..knock all the 54's off the wall for 55 and add to the wonderful history at this football club."

It's almost like he thinks this is the old Rangers and not the new Rangers. I mean I, for one, would certainly congratulate the new Rangers on their very first league title, but assuming 1 == 55 is a some crazy maths, even for someone coming from Liverpool.

SEVCO!

We should be going there set up to win and feeling very confident of getting at least a point from the game.

It looks very much like Rangers have bought the title this season through financial cheating and it would be a shame on principal if they were to clinch it against a very well run club like St Mirren.

Oh there's nothing we can do about it but it should be brought up at every possible opportunity.

A tainted title is a tainted title.

The old Rangers used the same tactic to cheat their way to multiple titles during the 90s and early 2000s. Tainted titles the lot of them. Remind us all how that worked out?

If you are happy to celebrate tainted titles that your club has cheated to win or laugh this off then I suppose that says a fair bit about you.

Can't wait to get it wrapped up and celebrate.

 

Thanks for those enjoyable posts, it makes it so much more sweeter.

Sounds about right when you consider the number one million consists of 8 figures. Must work to a different sequence of numbers than traditionally known.

I’d be intrigued to hear the examples of “financial cheating” you describe.

I wonder, for example, if Rangers will use their Champions League money from next season to repay all the small businesses they screwed over in 2012.

Or is doing the right thing an alien concept as long as you beat Celtic to the title?

You said we were "financial cheating" this season though and bought the title. Please, explain. I'm very curious.

Celebrate what?

If Ross County spent countless millions they don't possess they would also win the league title.

It's not much of an achievement really.

Meanwhile real football fans know that St Johnstone winning the Cup is an actual major achievement.
And the interest is in the battle for 3rd/4th, the battle for the last European slot (assuming the Scottish Cup is cancelled), the relegation battle and the competition to see who gets promoted from the Championship.

I might be wrong, but I suspect fans of most other clubs don't really care about who wins the top flight.

We're still far from full strength for this, but at least we'll have been slightly rested. 

Expect the 5-3-1-1 to continue, with Obika up front, McGrath off him, and maybe JDH, Erhahon and either Flynn or McPherson across the middle. Note that that's not us making special measures for Rangers: it's how we typically line up.

You're not curious at all, you mischevous scamp, otherwise you'd have done some research.

I believe this is an example of what young people these days call "sealioning" and I refuse to be played.

We don't typically line up with 5 at the back. Not that I'm aware of.

We do, and have done loads this season, especially recently. Tait RWB, Fraser, McCarthy and Shaughnessy at CH, Durmus LWB.
