Rangers fans break lockdown rules as ‘THOUSANDS’ gather outside Ibrox

Rangers fans have breached lockdown rules to throw their support behind their side ahead of the visit of St Mirren, with supporters seen swarming the cars of manager Steven Gerrard and star forward Alfredo Morelos. 

Under tier 4 restrictions, mass gatherings are currently banned in Scotland, with the public urged not to leave their homes amid the coronavirus pandemic. 

However, the Gers supporters have disregarded those restrictions to welcome their team ahead of their impending title party, with the Scottish Sun reporting that thousands are outside the ground.

And video footage shows a large group of fans lining the streets as Gerrard and Morelos made their way to the ground in their own cars, singing in unison on what could be a mammoth weekend for the club.  

Gerrard’s side are within touching distance of returning to the summit of Scottish football, having had to watch from afar as Celtic reigned supreme for the best part of a decade.

The Bhoys were bidding to win a tenth-successive league title this season, however if Rangers beat mid-table St Mirren and Celtic drop points against Dundee United, the Gers will be champions. 

Failing that, Gerrard’s side can win the Premiership crown if they defeat Celtic in the Old Firm Derby on March 21.

The club fell to the third tier following insolvency, before climbing their way back into the first division under Mark Warburton in 2015. 

Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers had turned Celtic into a relentless winning machine during Rangers’ absence, with Gerrard tasked with dethroning their arch rivals.

Celtic have fallen apart this season under Neil Lennon, with the Bhoys legend resigning from his position last month. 

Rangers are 18 points clear at the top of the Scottish Premiership before Saturday’s game, set to get under way at 3pm GMT.  

Police Scotland have been contacted for comment.
