Steven Gerrard wants Rangers fans to enjoy the club’s title celebrations this weekend, but urged them to follow government guidelines on coronaviruses amid reports that large numbers are expected to descend on Ibrox.
Gerrard’s side will receive the Scottish Premiership trophy on Saturday when they host Aberdeen, live on Sky Sports, after ending a 10-year wait to win the top flight title in March.
With supporters unable to be present on football pitches and social distancing health concerns, Justice Secretary Humza Yousaf called on club supporters to consider the implications before breaking Covid-19 restrictions .

Rangers boss Gerrard said on Friday: “The police and the government have issued statements, so I think it’s important that we try to follow them.
“I want them to have fun. Obviously things have changed since the last time in March, obviously you are allowed out now.
“But I think it’s important that they stay safe, follow the rules and follow the distance.
“But certainly take the opportunity. It is an important moment in the history of the club and I want them all to have fun.”
