Smith closes on tenth Ibrox title
Wednesday 11 May 2011
Rangers moved to within touching distance of the Scottish Premier League title as they marked manager Walter Smith's final game at Ibrox with a 2-0 win over Dundee United last night.
Goals from Nikica Jelavic and Kyle Lafferty sealed the points, with the champions now hoping to wrap up the championship in the last match of the season against Kilmarnock at Rugby Park on Sunday.
Rangers could be celebrating before then if Celtic lose at Hearts tonight and gift the trophy to their bitter rivals. Fans paid tribute to the outgoing manager with a banner: "League champions nine times, Scottish Cup winners five times, League Cup winners six times, thank you Walter Smith."
