Rangers fans celebrated yesterday's cathartic win over Celtic with greater vigour than they've possibly ever mustered after an Old Firm victory.
Their extremely wealthy chairman Dave King, whose accent has a tinge of the Springbok off it thanks to his long years working in South Africa, said that the entire board were in tears when the final penalty was blazed over the bar.
It was absolutely astonishing. When we were up there after the final whistle and I saw grown men cry, there were tears rolling down the faces of every single board member.
I think every single director, including me, was in tears and, as we looked at each other and hugged each other, everyone was crying. All the people who have gone through the last year, the regime change and everything we have done, this is what it is about.
For him, yesterday marks the ultimate proof that Rangers are back in business, though he did insist that they needed to augment the squad if they're to challenge for the title next year.
I regard today as us being back. I think that was the feeling of every board member. That was our feeling, 'we are back'. Because Celtic is the benchmark and we were better than Celtic today so we are back.
