Steven Gerrard, the manager of the Rangers, has threatened to ‘fine’ Alfredo Morelos for his celebratory antics.
Rangers won the Scottish Premiership on Saturday afternoon at Ibrox.
After Alfredo Morelos doused his manager with champagne during the club’s title celebrations on Saturday, Rangers manager Steven Gerrard joked that he would penalize him. Celtic’s perfect Scottish Premiership season came to an end with a 4-0 win over Aberdeen, capping off a remarkable season in which Celtic’s nine-year reign of terror came to an end.
Rangers concluded the season with a 25-point advantage over their Old Firm rivals, having won 32 of their 38 league games.
After the final whistle against Aberdeen, the players were presented with the Scottish Premiership trophy, which sparked wild celebrations in the Ibrox pitch.
Morelos, who scored 11 goals in the league, chose to empty a champagne bottle over Gerrard’s head as the victory celebrations began.
Rangers manager tried to flee for cover, but his striker was having none of it, following him around the pitch to complete the job.
Gerrard then joked that he would penalize Morelos for his antics, but confessed that for the first time in a long time, the aroma of champagne filled his nostrils.
“That’s another fine for him!” he told Sky Sports.
It has to be a pleasant experience.
“It’s been a long time since I’ve smelled champagne. Everyone knows what it smells like, but I’m genuinely enjoying it because it’s been so long.”
Since taking over as manager in 2018, Gerrard has rejuvenated Rangers, and he has finally been rewarded for his efforts by leading the club to its first league title in ten years.
The 40-year-old also expressed his delight in completing the task without losing a single match, praising the club’s administration and fans for their support.
Gerrard continued, “I’m really pleased of the boys and all the staff around me.” “The supporters are extremely important.
“I was asked to come here at a particularly trying moment. I owe a debt of gratitude to those who assisted me in achieving my goals.
“I have the board’s full backing, and we’ve worked hard every day to get here.”
Rangers needed just one more win to cap an incredible ‘invincible’ season, therefore the outcome on Saturday was never in doubt.
