Sweet Caroline is an adopted Rangers anthem for a number of reasons but the most pertinently is regarding comments made by Steven Gerrard earlier in the season.

The Gers had just beaten Livingston 1-0 to take a step closer to the league title and Stevie G had been sent to the stands at half-time for remonstrating with officials.

Taking part in a legendary interview involving Ibrox star Alfredo Morelos post-match, Gerrard famously said “I do enjoy Sweet Caroline after a win”.

The comments would send Rangers fans into hysterics online and since then it has become one of several tracks which have began to define a legendary season at Ibrox.
