Rangers fans are buoyant and hopeful of title success after a dramatic Sunday of Scottish Premiership action.
With both Steven Gerrard’s side and Celtic in action on Sunday due to participation in the UEFA Europa League, it was always going to be an exciting afternoon in the top-flight, but for Rangers supporters it all panned out perfectly.
Having watched Celtic be defeated away to Kilmarnock in the lunchtime kick-off, we were then treated to a thumping 5-1 win over St Johnstone at Ibrox, igniting hopes that we may be able to challenge for the title this term.
There’s a long way to go of course and we must sort out the derbies against Celtic themselves, but it was a day that hearkened back to the glory years of title successes.
The Gers of course have not lifted the league title since 2011.
Fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts on it all this weekend…
Celtic are on the slide. Whether it is this season or next, I have no doubt Gerrard will lift title 55 as Gers boss.

This season, this team is getting better with every game, should be in peak form to properly hump them at new year

Can see it now. There’s already and air of Liverpool Brendan. They’ve built him up so much that he’s completely unsackable. It’s class.

Me in June: I’ll just be happy to restore some pride, maybe a wee title challenge and finish second.
Me now: I’m getting 55 printed on my orange kit cause we’re winning the fucking league lads… pic.twitter.com/x2PNgZNgWW

What makes today even better is that we all know we would have dropped points in this game today and not took advantage of their defeat, but Gerrard has done an amazing job and we have a team full of leaders and winners, 55 is on the way

Last seasons we’d have dropped all 3 points today after Celtic doing the same. Not this year. Not Gerrard. Born winner #55 https://t.co/dVcx3xKkAy

Stroll in the park for Rangers today. Not always an easy task after mid week European football. Plenty of strength in depth for Gerrard to choose from. Buffalo was superb today as were several others. 55 is getting ever closer
