Rangers Are The Champions.!

Rangers won 5-1 away at Kilmarnock to seal the Scottish Premier League title for the third consecutive year and give a perfect send off to departing manager Walter Smith.

The Gers knew just had to win to secure the title and set about their task and it took just 47 seconds when Steven Davis released Lafferty and he produced a wonderful chip with the inside of the foot to beat oncoming Kilmarnock keeper,Cammy Bell.

Rangers were on fire and just four minutes later,youngster Greg Wylde used his great pace to run down the wing and deliver a ball to Steven Naismith who turned and knocked the ball in against his former club.

The third goal of this early assault came in just seven minutes when Jelavic played a well weighted pass onto Kyle Lafferty to keep his cool and slot past the keeper.

Killie looked shocked and were often caught in possession during the first half while failing to create much.

Davis tried to increase the lead late in the first half but his effort hit the post.

Rangers flew out the traps in the second half and it just toook 4 minutes before the Gers had scored again,it was Jelavic who stepped up with a wonderful freekick from around 20 yards.

Kyle Lafferty finally got his hattrick in the 53rd minute when Steven Naismith unselfishly gave him the ball for the Ulsterman to slot home.

The hosts got a goal  of their own after 65 minutes when a freekick deflected off the American Edu,sending Keeper McGregor the wrong way and finding its way into the net.

The game drew to a close with a few chances for each side but there was no more goals.

So Rangers ran out 5-1 winners and it was a perfect send off for Walter Smith.
