Michael Stewart has graciously paid tribute to Rangers as they won their 55th Scottish league title following Celtic’s draw with Dundee United.
The Gers moved to within one point of securing 55 with a 3-0 win over St Mirren on Saturday with their fate in the hands of their Old Firm rivals.
Former Hearts man and BBC Sportscene pundit Stewart has been accused of having an anti-Rangers agenda this season but even he couldn’t hide away from Steven Gerrard’s achievements.
Congratulations to Rangers. Thoroughly deserved title victory, the best team in Scotland by a distance. Steven Gerrard has built a fantastic team at Ibrox ⚽️ 🏆 🏴

Just moments after the final whistle at Tannadice, Stewart tweeted, “Congratulations to Rangers.
“Thoroughly deserved title victory, the best team in Scotland by a distance. Steven Gerrard has built a fantastic team at Ibrox.”
This is praise we are not used to hearing from Stewart but at this point it would be criminal to deny our incredible achievements this year.
We have every chance of winning the league and going unbeaten this season so to claim we were lucky or undeserving of the title is unthinkable.
There is cause for much celebration on the streets of Govan tonight and rightly so as all the pain of the last decade has finally faded away.
Stewart’s comments really mean very little in the grand scheme of things but it is nice to see him admit that we have been impressive this season.
Gerrard has done a phenomenal job and as long as he is at the helm we will continue to improve.
And let’s be honest, there could be more appreciation for the Rangers boss yet as we are still chasing that unbeaten record and still fighting in the Europa League.
Say it quietly, but no one in Europe will want to face us right now.
