Rangers will kick of the defence of their Scottish Premiership title on 31st July with a home match against Livingston.

Steven Gerrard's men stormed to their first title since 2011 with the former Liverpool midfielder winning his first trophy as a manager. Rangers are priced at 1.50 to make it a back-to-back triumph.

It was their 55th title and arguably most impressive as the Light Blues remained unbeaten, winning 32 of 38 games.

There were 102 points accumulated on the way and they ended up finishing 25 points ahead of Celtic, whose nine-year dominance of the Scottish top flight came crashing to an end.
