For the third time this season Ibrox fans have been celebrating like they’ve won the SPFL title!
Three points may have lifted Steven Gerrard’s side above Aberdeen but they still trail Celtic by a point with the hoops having played a game less.
Previous cringe-worthy pitch invasions at Partick Thistle and Ross County have turned the fans into a laughing stock but that didn’t hold them back when Alfredo Morelos netted a late winner at St Johnstone.

When you’re a perpetual under-achiever, even the smallest win seems like a massive victory.
This is where Sevco are at, and where they will stay.

The danger is we are on a different planet to them and if we play well next week we will Rag-doll them, can you imagine the reaction from these loonies?

In six days time Celtic visit Ibrox looking for their fifth successive win on the south-side with nerves kicking in big time among Gerrard’s follow followers.
At the start of November Danny Candeias sparked a pitch invasion when a freak shot found the net away to St Mirren while the 2-1 win at Hearts at the start of the month prompted high-fiving and chest pumping among the coaching staff at Tynecastle.
Despite today’s win Gerrard was a picture of misery after the match, realising that his squad is little better than an average collection of journeymen with no prospect of money being made available to strengthen in January.
As the Banter Years roll on the events of McDiarmid Park won’t be forgotten.
