Rangers owner Craig Whyte has heaped praise on title-winning manager Walter Smith.
The Ibrox club snagged yet another Scottish Premier League trophy yesterday, winning 5-1 at Kilmarnock to end the season a point clear of Glasgow rivals Celtic, and the achievement was not lost on Whyte.
"It is a great privilege to be part of Rangers and while we celebrate this title and our success in the League Cup our thoughts will turn quickly to building on this success,” he said.
"This title win is a truly great achievement by a club whose hallmark has been success throughout its proud history.
"I would like to congratulate Walter Smith, Ally McCoist and Kenny McDowall for their brilliant leadership.
"I also pay the highest possible tribute to the players who have shown great skill and determination in turning their desire for success into the club's 54th league title - the highest number attained by any club.
"The supporters want to see success and they deserve that success for the way in which they have stuck with the team."
