A PHOTO of Steven Gerrard's smiling dog has went viral - as the cute pooch sits next to the Scottish Premiership trophy, looking "proud as f**k".

The Ranger's manager's daughter Lilly uploaded the image to her Instagram account yesterday, asking her 141k followers to follow a dog walking company. 

But one Rangers fan spotted the unusual grin on the poodle's face as it sat side by side the silverware.
