Former Rangers player Josh Windass and current loanee Jordan Jones posted emotional tweets on trophy day and George Edmundson returned to Ibrox for the celebrations.
The Gers finally got their hands on the trophy they have known was theirs for over two months, after wrapping up an unbeaten season with a 4-0 win over Aberdeen at Ibrox on Saturday afternoon.
Ahead of kick-off, Jones, who is currently out on loan at Sunderland, sent a heartfelt message to Rangers players, staff and supporters.
“Hope everyone connected with Rangers enjoys today, 10 years of waiting for this moment but the famous Glasgow Rangers are back where we belong,” he wrote on Twitter. “We are the people.”

Initially, the trophy presentation was all about the players, with each member of the squad taking their turn to hold the silverware aloft.
However, staff members eventually got involved, and several players were keen to get a picture alongside famous kit man Jimmy Bell.
Those scenes, captured by the Sky Sports cameras, prompted an emotional tweet from former Gers attacker Windass, who described the long-serving Bell as the “heart and soul” of the club.
Seeing Jimmy bell with the trophy is unreal 🥺🥺 heart and soul of the club ❤️

Niko Katic has been recovering from a serious knee injury back home in Croatia, but he returned to Glasgow recently in order to be around the group for the final stages of the season and loanee George Edmundson was also present for the party.
Edmundson helped Derby County narrowly avoid relegation from the Championship last weekend, but he could be spotted pitchside and in the dressing room in a Rangers tracksuit after the match as players such as Bongani Zungu took to Instagram to give an insight into the celebrations.
In a TV interview after the presentation, Steven Gerrard provided an emphatic update on his future.
