Steven Gerrard and Rangers are poised to celebrate a first Scottish title in 10 years, clinching the trophy now a matter of when, not if, for the Glasgow giants.
The former England skipper, in his first senior managerial role, has seen his side display a ruthless streak by remaining unbeaten throughout the league campaign to date, forcing mistake after mistake from champions Celtic and dispelling any doubts about their ability to last the distance after last season's title challenge faded away.
And Rangers quality has not just been confined to the domestic stage with some impressive Europa League scalps and a last-16 meeting with Slavia Prague imminent.
The narrative, of course, is that Gerrard, having proved his managerial nous, will eventually end up as Liverpool boss but the prospect of retaining the Scottish crown (hopefully in front of supporters next season) and trying to steer his side into the Champions League group stages will be the immediate challenge.
With Neil Lennon having left his role as Celtic manager, one potential twist in the tale would be for Gerrard's fellow Three Lions centurion Frank Lampard to join him in Glasgow next season, Lampard being one of many names currently being speculated about as a potential successor to Lennon.
