Rangers are on the brink of title number 55 and while talent has played its part, the value of the teamwork fostered at Ibrox cannot be underestimated.

Togetherness is what has brought stability and calm to the club during times of despair and disappointment and since Steven Gerrard swanned into Glasgow in June 2018 we have never been lacking in that department.

A lot of work has gone into cajoling players like Alfredo Morelos and making them feel special but even players on the periphery feel valued and that is a terrific quality in itself.


It is the simple things that can do the most as shown by Gers first-team coach Michael Beale after Saturday’s 3-0 win over St Mirren.

While attention was quite rightly shone on the present players that had contributed so much, Beale took the time to thank a much-derided figure.

Jordan Jones was caught up in a breach of covid-19 protocols alongside George Edmundson earlier in the season and the duo were suspended by the club in November.

Upon his return he failed to feature as he found himself outcasted to the fringes of the squad before sealing a loan switch to Sunderland in January.

But he took to Twitter to wish the club well and urge the fans to ‘Enjoy every minute’.

Beale then replied via his personal Twitter account: “You are part of this Jordan.”

A simple but classy gesture from Beale and highlights the camaraderie at the Light Blues which extends to the larger family as a whole, not just those inside the small huddle.

Jones only made three appearances in the Premiership this season, scoring once, but has been made to feel special despite being hundreds of miles away.


That is why we have been so successful this season.

It is nothing to do with lavish spending sprees or being fortunate.

You do not cruise to 88 points from 32 games and the edge of invincibility through sheer luck.

Teamwork really does make the dream work and it has never been more evident than at Rangers this season.

We stand on the edge of glory and it is great to see everyone feeling valued.
