Rangers great Laudrup: Third Division champs will be saluted in a decade

Despite many not giving Rangers the plaudits for this season's Scottish Third Division title win, Brian Laudrup believes the players will be praised in 10 years' time.

The Ibrox club have already secured the championship in Scotland's fourth tier and even though some have rated the team as Rangers' worst in history, club great Laudrup has hailed manager Ally McCoist and his team for starting the return to glory of the Glasgow giants.

"You would have hoped that what happened to Rangers over the last 10 months wouldn't have happened to any club," he told SunSport.

"I read that at the start of pre-season they only had six players. When you think about it like that, it's incredible what they have achieved.

"It was an almost impossible task. They didn't even play one pre-season game.

"If you put any coach in the world in that position - telling him he had to deliver a title under those circumstance - it would be very difficult.

"I think that what's been done is of extreme importance. There may not be too many Rangers fans who look on this season as a huge success.

"I just think 10 years from now it will be thought of as a good overall result. It maybe won't be remembered as the best football they've ever seen, but it's been a huge step in the right direction.

"Everyone at Rangers gets my respect for that. It's been an impossible season and the outcome is incredible. The team has delivered."
