Alfredo Morelos took aim at Celtic as Rangers took another step closer to winning the SPL title on Saturday.
Steven Gerrard’s side sealed a 3-0 victory over St Mirren, meaning that they will be crowned champions on Sunday if Celtic drop points against Dundee United.
Ryan Kent scored the opener against St Mirren, while two minutes later, Morelos scored his 10th league goal of the season.
And during his celebrations, the Colombian striker held up 10 fingers – the same gesture both Brendan Rodgers and Neil Lennon have used in the past to signal Celtic’s ambition to win 10 league titles in a row.
However, Celtic’s hopes of achieving that feat are now set to be extinguished with Rangers are on the brink of their first league title since 2011.
Morelos’ gesture could also represent ’55’, which is the number of league titles Rangers will have won once they are crowned champions.
Ianis Hagi then scored in the 46th minute to seal Rangers’ victory at Ibrox.
‘Very happy today, the team played well today again… champion,’ Morelos said after the game.
‘Very, very happy for the team and for the staff.’
Rangers’ next game in the SPL is against Celtic on March 21.
