Thousands of Rangers supporters broke lockdown to gather outside Ibrox on Saturday.
Steven Gerrard’s side took one step closer to winning their first league title in 10 years as they sealed a 3-0 victory over St Mirren.
And ahead of the game, thousands of Rangers fans flocked to their stadium to celebrate the team being on the brink of success.
Under current guidelines, mass gatherings are banned in Scotland, while a maximum of two people from two households are allowed to meet outdoors.
But Rangers supporters gathered in their thousands to greet the players and staff as they made their way to the ground, with some fans letting off smoke bombs and flares.
Police have said no arrests were made outside Ibrox.
Rangers will be officially crowned champions if Celtic drop points against Dundee United on Sunday.
Chief Superintendent Mark Sutherland from Police Scotland said: ‘About 10am a large number of supporters gathered outside Ibrox Stadium and a number of pyrotechnic devices were set off.
‘I would remind supporters that in line with current Scottish government coronavirus guidelines, all gatherings are currently prohibited and we would urge members of the public to comply with these restrictions.
‘Our priority is public safety and an appropriate policing plan was in place and officers engaged with those present to explain and encourage compliance with restrictions.’
A spokesperson for the Scottish Government said: ‘We are extremely disappointed supporters have gathered at Ibrox today.
‘At this crucial stage of suppressing the virus, the actions of this minority of individuals jeopardises the safety of other supporters, the police on duty and the wider community.
‘We will continue to engage with Police Scotland and the club.’
A member of the Blues Brothers Rangers and Linfield FC fan group, who spoke to the PA outside Ibrox, warned that the celebrations will be ‘bigger’ when Gerrard’s side are crowned champions.
‘It’s scenes of joy. Ten years almost of pain and watching our rivals win the lot has been hard to take,’ said the supporter.
‘It’s scenes of relief to stop the 10 in a row.
‘We’d expect celebrations to be bigger when Rangers officially do win the title, whether that’s tomorrow or two weeks’ time against Celtic.’
