Steven Gerrard ‘emotional’ after ending Rangers decade-long drought for league title

Rangers' first Scottish Premiership in 10 years is an “emotional high” according to manager Steven Gerrard.

Rangers won the Scottish title on Sunday after Celtic was held 0-0 at Dundee United a result that left their Old Firm rivals with an unassailable 20-point lead at the top of the table.

It was Gerrard’s first major title as a manager with the crown being the club’s 55th league crown and speaking after the feat, the Liverpool legend said: “It is very difficult to put into words right now. I’m on a real, emotional high and it has been a journey that is not finished.

“There is more to come and the next thing for me, when you win, it is always about what is next, and I am so proud of the players first and foremost-they are the most important people inside the club.

“But they are not as important as the supporters-they are what makes this club and it is for them and we have been down at times, really low at times, but this is an incredible high. It has been an incredible journey we have been on and we deserve it.”

Gerrard still has two chances of winning his club two other trophies as they are in the Scottish Cup and Europa League where they face a trip to Slavia Prague on Thursday.
