Warburton shares how Rangers celebrated in wake of title triumph
By Alex Stevens
Mark Warburton has admitted that everyone at Rangers had a “great night” in the wake of their title triumph on Tuesday night.
The Light Blues secured promotion to the Scottish Premiership to end their four-year spell outside of the top flight.
James Tavernier’s solitary goal against Dumbarton on Tuesday night was enough to seal the all-important 1-0 win to secure the Championship title for Mark Warburton’s side and kick off huge celebrations.
“You have to enjoy the good times,” said Warburton on Friday, as quoted by the official Rangers Twitter account.”Everyone had a great night on Tuesday but we are focused and ready for Sunday.”
Rangers have now turned their attention to preparing for Sunday’s Scottish Challenge Cup final against League One side Peterhead.

Ranger take on Peterhead hoping to win the lower league showpiece for the first time after missing out in each of the last three seasons, and have sold just under 41,000 tickets for the clash, which is a 46,000 sell-out at Hampden Park.
