St. Mirren boss Jim Goodwin has praised the Rangers support after the scenes at Ibrox before yesterday’s Premiership clash – and admitted that he can’t blame them for showing up on Edmiston Drive in their droves yesterday.

Gers fans created a party atmosphere outside the ground as Gerrard’s side essentially clinched the title with a 3-0 win over the Paisley side, with Goodwin confessing the players did their part too.

Despite concerns over social distancing, Goodwin told how there “was no malice” as he and his players made his way through the jubilant fans into the ground pre-match.

“It didn’t have any impact on us. We walked through them and – although they shouldn’t be there – can you blame them?” Goodwin said [Daily Record].

“It was all in good humour, there was no malice. I walked through about 100 of them and it was fine.

“They generated a good atmosphere and the Rangers players didn’t let them down.”

Goals from Ianis Hagi, Ryan Kent and Alfredo Morelos has the Gers cruising and prompted further jubilation as Gerrard’s side know they need a single point – or Celtic to drop points – and the title is officially theirs.
