Police have urged Rangers fans to disperse following a mass gathering of fans to celebrate their side lifting the Premiership trophy.

Fans initially gathered outside of the ground hours before kick-off against Aberdeen as Steven Gerrard's side wrapped up the season with a 4-0 victory over Aberdeen. 

Fans clambered onto the gates outside the stadium after the final whistle with flares and smoke bombs also set off as Rangers lifted the Premiership trophy.

Fans have since arrived in George Square with Glasgow's George Square webcam showing smoke from flares as fans continue to gather and breach Covid protocols. 

It comes following calls for fans not to gather as Glasgow gets set to remain in Level 3 of Covid restrictions amid a surge of cases.

"We will continue to liaise with our partners, including the Scottish government, to ensure matches can be completed safely and to minimise the risk to both our officers and the public."

Rangers tweeted "We are the champions" and encouraged fans to celebrate "in a safe and sensible manner" and disperse from Ibrox.

Justice Secretary Humza Yousaf also called on supporters to take "responsibility" for their actions tweeting: "While there is a significant Police presence at Ibrox and across City, this is ultimately about personal responsibility. If you have gathered you should disperse, particularly given yesterday's announcement about Covid in Glasgow."

It comes despite calls during the week from the club, police and other political leaders to follow Covid guidelines. 

Last night Rangers supporters set off a large number of red flares and smoke bombs on the banks of the River Clyde with no arrests being made.
