Rangers striker Kemar Roofe has admitted that the team were cheering on Old Firm foes Celtic - so that their league fate was in their own hands.

With all of the squad unable to peel their eyes away from the TV they ended up watching Dundee United play out a goalless draw against the Parkhead side, handing Rangers their 55th league title.

Speaking to the Super 6 podcast, Roofe commented that it was a strange feeling seeing the Tannadice outfit effectively win the title for them: "We were at the training ground, supposed to be doing a recovery session with the game in the background.

"It was a perfect moment, everyone was there watching the game.

"Now I kind of understand how it feels to be a fan watching.

"It was strange because I was watching the game but I had no connection towards the other team but I wanted a certain result.

"We got the result so it was amazing. But it is very strange - it felt like someone else was winning you the league.

"Whereas a lot of the players, a lot of us wanted Celtic to win the game, so then we could actually win the league ourselves by playing against them the following week. So it was a strange moment."

Rangers went to Parkhead the following week as champions and shared the spoils in a one all draw.

After the international break Steven Gerrards men will be hoping to remain unbeaten for their five post-split fixtures and cement their legacy with an invincible season.
