Rangers win the championship as Gerrard denies Celtic 10 in a row – Soccer Sports

The Rangers won the Scottish Premiership Champion for the first time in 10 years after Celtic slipped into Dundee United on Sunday.

Steven Gerrard’s team moved to the brink of glory on Saturday, defeating St Mirren 3-0 at home, and if Celtic defeated Tannadis within 24 hours, they needed another point to get over the line.

However, the Rangers were able to celebrate Scotland’s first top flight title since the 2010-11 season, as old firm rivals only drew 0-0 on the streets. In the process, the success of the Celtic tournament was over.

Securing the league also gives Gerrard the first trophy of his managerial career in charge of his third season at Ibrox. Not only did they finish second in the previous campaign under the former England national team, but they also lost the 2020 League Cup final.

After defeating St Mirren, Gerrard was forced to make a new start in the fourth tier of Scottish football following major financial problems, including liquidation, and the club “returned to hell in the last decade.” Told.

Gers finally completed his journey back to Premiership in 2016, although he was unable to end control of Glasgow’s neighbors in recent years.

Celtic have been bidding this quarter to win the league crown for the tenth consecutive year. This is a feat that neither club has ever achieved. However, while the defending champions stuttered and eventually led to Neil Lennon’s departure, Gerrard’s Rangers dominated.

They have not lost the league match in the 2020-21 season. So far, he has scored 28 wins and 4 draws in 32 games, averaging 2.8 points per game.

A total of 77 goals average 2.4 per game. Team penalty taker full-back James Tavernier is the top scorer at 11, but forwards Kemar Roofe (10) and Alfredo Morelos (10) have also reached double digits.

But it’s an outstanding defensive record that has underpinned their responsibilities. The Rangers scored only nine goals. This works well with a ridiculously low goal of 0.3 per outing.

No runs against St Mirren were 24th in the league, but according to Opta data, so far they haven’t made any defensive mistakes that could lead to a goal for the opposing team.

The Rangers scored first in 28 of their 32 league appearances, but after breaking the deadlock, they failed to win only once, but only four points from the winning position throughout the season. It hasn’t fallen.

Before the end of the season, there are still possibilities for silver products. The Rangers are still in the Europa League and their last 16 opponents are Slavia Prague.
