The Rangers lift the Viola Trophy as James Tavernier takes the cup in Lyon

The Ibrox side was not celebrated wildly but the players laughed as soon as the trophy was lifted.


The Rangers joined the Volia Trophy in Lyon, taking over the James Tavernier Trophy at the end of the tournament.

The Ibrox captain hopes that this will be one of the many pieces of silverware he has been handling this season ahead of the massive campaign for the club.

These festivities are naturally kept to a minimum for the pre-season tournament, but it will be a good experience for a team that has so far failed to win a home trophy under Steven Gerrard.

The Ibrox boss himself admitted that winning the trophy was the second game, but they were happy to be back in Glasgow.

Tavernier is the man who lifted the trophy but is also associated with young full-back Nathan Patterson.

The rest of the players shared a smile with Alfredo Morelos Jermaine Defoe in the background as they rained down confetti from above.

The Rangers are the only team to win both games 2-0 over Lyon and Nice.

Goals from Jermaine Defoe and Jamie Bar zone sealed the victory on Saturday night, with Ianis Haggis and his goals later helping Leon to victory on Thursday.
