STEVEN GERRARD admits he will take some time out over the summer to reflect on his Rangers journey and the significance of securing a historic 55th Premiership title this term.

Rangers were crowned as champions earlier this month as they secured an unbeaten league campaign and delivered a first top flight trophy in a decade to complete their climb back to the summit of Scottish football.

Gerrard has collected a handful of individual awards and accolades to mark the achievement but the emotion of his first title of his managerial career will take some time to sink in.

Gerrard said: "I'm just trying to process the whole season and the three years, the whole journey if you like.

"We've got some weeks now to reflect and get some rest then re-energise ourselves to go and defend it for our lives next year. It's been... it's difficult to put into words really.

"It still feels really good, the game takes you to some incredible highs but it also takes you to some real lows as well and we've had to come through that.

"But to do it in the style we did it, to dominate the league the way the players did it, I think it's going to feel good for a long time."
