The Gers have won the Scottish Premiership for the first time after a decade of hardship for the Ibrox faithful, as they had to witness their club dropped into the fourth tier and fight their way back to the top flight.

 

In Rangers’ absence, cross-town rivals Celtic won the league title nine times in a row, further piling on the misery for the Gers and making the latest title win even sweeter.

 

 

McLaughlin insisted that his team should first try to win the game against Aberdeen at the weekend and expressed his confidence that his team-mates are on the same wavelength as him.

 

The goalkeeper added that after the game is finished celebrations will begin in full swing at Ibrox.

 

 

Speaking to RangersTV after the win against Livingston on Wednesday, McLaughlin said: “We need to get the 90 minutes out of the way first and we will have to put in another professional performance.

 

“I am sure the boys will be up for that – we have got the result we needed tonight at a tough away game so it will be great to finish it off in style at Ibrox, and of course, everyone is then looking forward to what comes after that.

 

 

“So we will get the game boxed off first and it will be big celebrations for everyone involved in the club when we lift that trophy.”

 

A draw or a win against Aberdeen at Ibrox will come with the added bonus that Rangers would reach 100 points for the league season and would have managed to go the entire campaign undefeated.
