Emphatic Rangers ran out comfortable 3-0 winners over St Mirren in a thoroughly professional performance which sums up the focus which has defined this Gers side this season.
Since the first kick of the ball Rangers have been laser-focused on 55 and we’re in a moment as a club and as a support when this is about to be realised.
As fans gathered outside the stadium, you’d have maybe forgiven this Ibrox side for starting the match full of adrenaline and in a rush to finish it off.
But an emphatic Rangers showed a composure and patience which has begun to define a side which grows in belief with every result, every moment and every bit of praise it receives.
This a well-oiled, well-drilled unit with a remarkable togetherness who show immense respect to the abilities and responsibilities of their teammates and who trust each other staunchly, and devoutly.
Make no mistake Rangrs fans, we are witnessing something special unfolding before us.
After a decade of tribulations, this is the team we’ve dreamed of – ruthless, unified, determined, talented.
Nothing more summed this up than Ryan Kent’s opener, Rangers’ movement and creativity stretching an admittedly committed St Mirren side who were already struggling to cope.
Kent – a player who has been here since Gerrard arrived – took that responsibility to show his two-footed quality to shift the ball, leave the defender for dead, and rifle it into the far corner.
Morelos too – a player who felt the pain of multiple high-profile defeats pre-Gerrard – showed his ruthless streak amid a fine run of form to make it two with a sweet finish after a neatly rolled Kamara pass.
At half-time the message was clearly to go and kill the game and within the first minute, Ianis Hagi showed the poise and concentration symbolic of a team in form to patiently lash the ball into the St. Mirren net.
From there, it was a leg stretching exercise and Rangers took the opportunity to rest some key players ahead of the trip to Slavia Prague in the Europe League on Thursday.
But before then attention will turn to Tannadice where anything but a Celtic win will be the crowning moment for Rangers fans desperate to secure that legendary 55th title.
