Liverpool have sent their congratulations to club legend Steven Gerrard after his Glasgow Rangers team were officially crowned Scottish champions on Sunday.
Celtic’s goalless draw against Dundee United confirmed what seemed destined for months, just 24 hours after Rangers beat St Mirren 3-0.
Gerrard won seven major honors over the course of his historic playing career at Anfield, but a league title infamously eluded him. Yet it has taken him just two and a half years as a coach to plan the downfall of the Rangers’ hometown rivals, ending a period of national dominance that had lasted for a decade.
In recognition of Gerrard’s achievement, Liverpool tweeted: “Congratulations from all of us at Liverpool FC to Steven Gerrard and his team on winning the Scottish Premier League title.”

Those sentiments were shared by Gerrard’s former teammate Jamie Carragher, who earlier this week gave the former England international a suggestion to stay at Ibrox for many more years.
Speaking ahead of Liverpool’s Premier League match against Fulham on Sunday, Carragher said:
“They must have been terrified for years that record would have been beaten by Celtic,’ he told Sky Sports. ‘When Gerrard came in, that was the name of the game to stop Celtic achieving that.
“They’ve come a long way, but they’ll be hoping the glory days are back. He’s done a brilliant job. They were so far behind Celtic when he first came in.
“I think the European campaigns have been the big boost – certainly financially to help him reinvest in the squad.”
