Rangers banner flown over Celtic match as Gerrard’s side close in on title

A banner celebrating Rangers’ soon-to-be confirmed Scottish Premiership title was flown over Dundee United’s Tannadice Park as Celtic played there on Sunday.

The Hoops have to win to delay the coronation of their Glasgow rivals, who they face in an Old Firm Derby in the pair’s next match on March 21.

Steven Gerrard’s side moved to the cusp of the title with a 3-0 win over St Mirren at Ibrox on Saturday, when thousands of fans congregated outside of the ground to celebrate the imminent success.

Fans extended those celebrations on Sunday when a plane was flown over Tannadice trailing a banner featuring the words: “Can you see us now? #55titles”

Celtic had won the previous nine Scottish Premiership titles prior to this season, and have won 51 overall.

Video footage of Gerrard celebrating the imminent success with his players in the Ibrox dressing room circulated on social media on Saturday night, and the former Liverpool and England midfield says he is struggling to contain his excitement at the success.

“Bubbling. Bubbling. I’m obviously really, really happy and proud right now,” he said on Saturday.

“I can certainly relate to these emotions that I’ve had as a player.

“At the same time I want to stay controlled and humble because obviously it’s not confirmed as of yet.

“But I think everyone knows it’s 99.99 per cent done.

“Because of what’s going on right now in the world it’s very difficult to get carried away and celebrate for real if you like, so I’m trying to keep a lid on things.”
