We’re delighted to welcome former Rangers manager Alex McLeish as our exclusive columnist. Each week he’ll be giving his views on the biggest talking points at Ibrox…
Alex McLeish has claimed that Rangers have been “phenomenal” this season after winning Scottish Premiership title number 55.
The Bears sealed the title after Celtic crumbled once again on Sunday and could only manage a single point against Dundee at Tannadice.
McLeish insisted that the ability to control games at Ibrox has transformed the club and has seen them grow a “ruthlessness” in their style.
Speaking exclusively to Ibrox News, McLeish said, “In a nutshell.
“They have learnt how to control games. Everybody was saying they’ve had to manage games better, but they can’t be perfect; they’ve made enormous strides over this season.
“The consistency has been phenomenal. It was typical of the ruthlessness of Rangers that they have at this moment in time.”
Rangers have been untouchable this season.
Much has been made by the fact that Celtic have been shocking, but they have crumbled due to the pressure put on them by Steven Gerrard and his squad.
McLeish has seen everything at Ibrox, and even this will have left him delighted.
The Bears aren’t going to stop there either, with the invincible season, the Europa League and the Scottish Cup still to come.
Moments like that last-gasp winner at Livingston last week has summed up this success, and proves how worthy the Champions are; this is only the start.
