Rangers are the Champions of Scotland and if the country thought the celebrations on the day the club mathematically secured the title were bad – just wait until the day we lift the trophy.
Ibrox Trophy Day is a moment to cherish for Gers fans who’ve spent 10 long years in the wilderness, defiant and proud in magnificent numbers even if the team didn’t match their loyalty.
When the club lifts the title it will signal the end of ten years of hurt and Rangers’ first trophy since the club’s financial collapse in 2012, the Gers and their fans taking right hooks from everyone on the way back up the pyramid.
Undeterred the Gers continued to climb and the club’s crowning moment is on the horizon – something many of our detractors are struggling to deal with – as the Gers secure 55.
But when exactly do Rangers lift the trophy? Fans need to know, of course, there are blow-up sharks, smoke bombs and absolutely mental 55 memorabilia to be bought in the run-up.
As it stands, no official confirmation has been made regarding Rangers’ “Trophy Day” but for all intents and purposes, it’s lined up to be the final game of the season [Glasgow Times].
This takes place at Ibrox on 15th May where the Gers finish the season against northeast rivals Aberdeen.
The match kicks off at 12:30pm and should Rangers continue to impress domestically then this may well be the final hurdle to complete an invincible league season.
What a magnificent achievement that would be but there are four games to go before Aberdeen roll into town.
Incredibly, this date will be exactly 10 years on from the last time the club won the title in 2011 – it’s a funny old game indeed.
For the last decade Rangers fans have dreamt of the moment that the red, white, and blue ribbons would adorn the Premiership trophy once more.
As the season enters its final furlong – and with confirmation the moment is on the horizon – that dream is about to become a reality and fans don’t have long to wait.
Are we excited yet Bears?
The reality of 55 also appears to be creeping in across the City as our Old Firm rivals continue to meltdown over the Gers’ legendary title victory.
