Rangers ready themselves for title party as Warburton's
men close in on top-flight return

After four years in the Scottish lower leagues on a journey that has taken them as far north as Elgin and as south as Berwick, Rangers can clinch a return to the Scottish Premiership by defeating Dumbarton on Tuesday.

The Light Blues have fought off stiff competition from Hibernian during the season, but have ultimately left the Easter Road side in their wake by wrapping up the Scottish Championship title with some ease.

Tasked with picking up the pieces after the Ibrox side's humiliating Play-Off final defeat to Motherwell at the end of last season, boss Mark Warburton has not only restored the Glasgow giants' pride but has done so playing football that has been pleasing on the eye.

Indeed if Rangers fans were worried about Warburton's ability to take on Alan Stubbs' Hibs, then those fears were allayed in his first game as the Ibrox side ran out 6-2 winners at Easter Road when the two sides clashed in the Petrofac Cup.

A series of shrewd signings in the transfer market saw Warburton make use of his knowledge of the English lower leagues to bolster Rangers' squad. Key additions such as Martyn Waghorn and James Tavernier from Wigan Athletic freshened up the team, whilst the likes of Danny Wilson and Jason Holt also made the switch to Ibrox as Rangers looked to gain automatic promotion to the Premiership.

Scott Brown: Watch Celtic head to the finish line

Hoops captain Scott Brown believes that Celtic are fully capable of going on an unbeaten run between now and the end of the season. Ronny Deila’s side have the opportunity to turn the screw on Aberdeen tomorrow night as they seek to take another significant step towards a fifth successive title. Celtic play Dundee at Dens Park with a win moving them back to seven points clear at the top of the table.

And Brown has told Aberdeen that Celtic are gearing up to head firmly out of sight as the finish line start to loom ever closer. “There is no doubt that we can go through the remaining seven league games unbeaten now – and that is exactly what we intend to do. Plus there is a Scottish Cup semi-final and possible final so there is a lot for us to be looking forward to.

“We always want to win every game but I think we are starting to feel as though we have got a fair bit of momentum behind us now. “There is silverware up for offer now and we know what we have to do. We have put a bit of light between ourselves and Aberdeen now and the aim is to keep moving forward now.

Dumbarton out to spoil the Ibrox title party

If you’ve ever planned a wedding, you’ll probably know about the obligation to invite an unwelcome but necessary guest. A third cousin you’ve never met that you stick on table 27 to placate your mother, for example.

Dumbarton could be forgiven for feeling a bit like that unwanted guest as they attend Ibrox this evening. The vast majority of the 50,000-odd who will be in attendance are there to celebrate Rangers' capture of the Championship title, and they won’t expect any serious impediment to their festivities from Stevie Aitken’s part-timers.

Haste ye back.
