Rangers boss Mark Warburton comments on Twitter after sealing promotion against Dumbarton

Rangers beat Dumbarton on Tuesday evening to secure promotion.

Rangers manager Mark Warburton has taken to Twitter to celebrate after his side won the Scottish Championship title on Tuesday evening.

The Gers entered their game against Dumbarton knowing that a win would secure the title, and whilst it was far from their best performance of the season in front of an expectant Ibrox crowd, James Tavernier's second half goal handed Rangers a 1-0 win.

Fans, players and staff celebrated at the final whistle, as Rangers are back in the Scottish Premiership for the first time since 2012, bringing an end to their long road back to the top flight.

Manager Warburton deserves great credit for that, as after arriving from Brentford over the summer, he has completely rejuvenated the club with superb signings and an attractive brand of football.

25 wins from 32 games have seen Rangers clinch the title under Warburton, and he can now look forward to a campaign in the Premiership next season - which of course means regular battles against Old Firm rivals Celtic.

Long after the final whistle on Tuesday evening, Warburton took to Twitter to send a message to supporters, thanking them for their 'magnificent backing' at Ibrox against Dumbarton and over the course of the season, and told fans it would never be taken for granted.

 

With the title wrapped up, Rangers can now turn their attentions to the Scottish Cup semi-final against Celtic later this month - and Warburton really would cap off a dream season with a win over the Bhoys at Hampden Park.
