We take every game as it comes, try and get the three points’ and we look at it like that.“We didn’t say ‘we’re 10 points ahead of them now, we can start celebrating’ because we hadn’t got the job done. Now we have, it’s not about that at all. Rangers defender Dominic Ball has said that he and his teammates were always confident they could deliver the Championship and earn automatic promotion this season.The Ibrox side won the title on Tuesday night with a 1-0 win over Dumbarton that put them 20 points ahead of a Hibernian team who had looked to push them closely in the title race.The season had been marked by verbal sparring between Hibernian coach Alan Stubbs and Rangers manager Mark Warburton, while Hibs players had also talked up their title chances.Ball said that though his side had always believed they would come out on top, they did their talking on the pitch. “We’ve done what we came to do and we move on.”The defender, on loan from Tottenham Hotspur, said that after securing the league, he was now turning his attention to more silverware. Rangers face Peterhead in the Petrofac Cup final on Sunday and one week later go up against Celtic in the Scottish Cup.“It would be brilliant,” he said. “That’s what I want to get is three trophies. Not bad for your second loan at the age of 20.“I think that’ll help me push on massively and obviously it’s massive for the club as well. The lads will deserve it so we’ll see.”last_img
