Steven Gerrard has spoken out on Rangers becoming Scottish Premiership champions as Celtic dropped points on Sunday against Dundee United. The Gers became champions for the first time in 10 years as they ended Celtic’s reign.
Gerrard’s side became champions without losing any games as they celebrated 28 victories and 4 draws.
“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,” Gerrard said via Rangers TV.
“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. I would just like to thank the board for the support they have given me – each and every one of them – and everyone who has given me the backing to go and do the job I needed to do and everyone connected to the club who is here now deserve to enjoy this.
“And even the people that have been here and represented it that aren’t here anymore, people that have been and gone deserve to enjoy the part that they have played.
“This has been a team effort and a collective effort – it is a monumental achievement and I am just so proud to be the manager of that.
“I couldn’t have done it without everyone who has given me that support so I’d like to thank everyone.”
