After the celebrations at Tynecastle on Sunday it was only a matter of time before the top of the SPFL Premiership table took on a more familiar look.
At the sound of Bobby Madden’s final whistle against Hearts Steven Gerrard high fived and whooped it up with his backroom team.
Mission accomplished as the club’s social media team went in to overdrive, if the Ibrox club had a retail and merchandising department t-shirts and DVD’s would have been on sale by the time that the victorious Parks of Hamilton bus reached it’s destination at the west end of the M8.
Steven Gerrard has done a fantastic job so far as Rangers manager… but this did make me chuckle this morning… https://t.co/dSpL6twPUZ

Gerrard lapped up the adulation, as a player at Liverpool he was rarely in the position to look down on anyone from the top of the Premier League.
At his media conference before the match with Aberdeen he was more smug than usual, talking up his players and their ‘achievement’.
Reality returned with another win for Derek McInnes over the former Liverpool youth coach, by the time Gerrard watches his side kick-off against Dundee on Sunday his side could be sitting in fourth place behind Celtic, Kilmarnock and Hearts.
