Rangers made a remarkable comeback from a 0-2 deficit against Dundee FC on Tuesday evening.

The team, managed by Philippe Clement, eventually won 5-2. This victory postponed Celtic's impending title celebration by at least a day, adding a bit more suspense to the Scottish Premiership title race. However, the win was not enough to uplift the spirits of all Rangers fans. When the Rangers squad did a lap of honor after their final home game of the season, not all supporters appreciated it. The supporters' group, The Union Bears, notably left the stadium as the team approached them, signaling their discontent with the season's outcome.

The Scottish title race was all but decided on Saturday in the Old Firm match. Celtic dealt the final blow to Rangers' title hopes with a 2-1 victory, effectively sealing their dominance in the league. The victory was a significant moment for Celtic, showcasing their resilience and strength under pressure. On Wednesday evening, Brendan Rodgers' team has the opportunity to clinch their third consecutive title with just a draw against Kilmarnock FC. This would mark another milestone in Rodgers' successful tenure at Celtic, highlighting his ability to maintain high standards and deliver consistent results.

The Old Firm match not only underscored Celtic's superiority this season but also highlighted the gaps Rangers need to address. Philippe Clement, having taken over mid-season, has shown promise with some strong performances, but the team still fell short in crucial moments. The reaction of The Union Bears and other disenchanted supporters underscores the high expectations and the frustration with the current state of affairs at the club.

As the season draws to a close, both clubs face different prospects. Celtic is on the brink of celebrating another league title, reinforcing their position at the top of Scottish football. Meanwhile, Rangers will be looking ahead to the next season, aiming to rebuild and challenge their archrivals more effectively. The potential title clincher for Celtic on Wednesday evening will be a significant event, watched closely by both sets of fans, as it could further solidify Celtic's recent dominance in Scottish football.
