Thousands of Rangers fans have arrived at Ibrox setting off blue and red flares ahead of the team collecting their first Scottish Premiership trophy in a decade.

Fans cheered and chanted as players left the team bus before their home game against Aberdeen as Police Scotland called on them to "disperse and take personal responsibility and use Greater Glasgow safely and respectfully".

After the trophy is lifted, hundreds of fans are expected to march into the heart of Glasgow, with the Union Bears fan group announcing plans to walk from the stadium to George Square.

Justice Secretary Humza Yousaf added that the "key point" for fans was taking "personal responsibility".

He said on Twitter: "While there is a significant Police presence at Ibrox and across City, this is ultimately about personal responsibility. If you have gathered you should disperse, particularly given yday's announcement about Covid in Glasgow."

The Scottish government previously criticised Rangers' response after thousands of fans gathered outside Ibrox and in George Square on the weekend they clinched the title in early March.

On Friday night, scores of Rangers fans lighted red flares simultaneously along the Clyde close to the Clyde Arc, known as the "squinty bridge".
