Rangers fans enjoyed the second round of league fixtures with their side finishing the weekend two points clear of Old Firm rivals, Celtic, after a comfortable 3-0 win over St Mirren.

Alfredo Morelos made a welcome return to goalscoring form with the Colombian international scoring two and assisting another for Steven Gerrard’s side.
He has been the subject of intense speculation throughout the summer and recent reports of bids being rejected from Lille appeared to have turned his head, however, with two goals and two assists, his form in the Scottish Premiership will be all that matters to Light Blues fans up and down the country.
Will Rangers win the league this season?
Rangers fans took to social media in response to the early advantage that their side has secured making the most of the opportunity, even if there is still a long way to go before medals are handed out, however, apparently a season doesn’t have to be completed before the champions are decided.
Today has been a great day, Rangers dominate St Mirren, which was fully expected.
Morelos back to his usual ways.
Squad looking stronger in depth.
Chris Burke giving Celtic one of the many reality checks they’ll get this year.
On to the next one.

I can’t see Celtic recover from that setback. 2 points behind with only 36 matches to play. Give the trophy to Rangers. Cough, belch, splutter, phart!

That’s a nice unexpected bonus from Ayrshire, but let’s not get carried away Bears. There’s a long long long way to go 🇬🇧

Of course, Chris Sutton couldn’t help himself and if you thought his reaction to Rangers beating Dunfermline was bad all those years ago, imagine what he will be like if Gerrard’s side win the league this year.
Glad you realize that Rangers are going to storm it this year.

Wonder how happy folks will be if we lockdown again in a month or so and rangers are handed the league and hearts after just a couple of games are promoted. Sure everyone will be sound with that since that’s what happens now.

Staying above celtic is worth celebrating early now chris as leagues in scotland dont need to be won & finished on the pitch as we got to see recently.

Rangers fans took particular pleasure in looking to wind up Chris Sutton after his usual bitter response to his side dropping points, it may be early days but there is nothing better than making hay whilst the sun shines.
