Rangers boss Walter Smith believes this season's double triumph is among his greatest achievements in football. "The nine-in-a-row thing, when you consider it was only the second time it had happened, is maybe something that has to have a whole set of circumstances to conspire for any team to achieve that," Smith said.
"This time was slightly different. We were taking over a team who were behind Celtic in the league championship and hadn't been doing well at all, and had to lift them.
"I think winning the championship this season was probably, if anything, one of the best achievements.
"That's probably because last season we felt we were on the way to doing that and lost out in the final spell.
"This time we clinched the championship in the final spell so there is obviously a delight among us that we managed to do that."
