Bongani Zungu's Rangers made history when they secured their 55th Scottish Premiership title on the weekend, but where do they and Pitso Mosimane's Al Ahly rank among the teams with the most league titles worldwide?

Zungu was not in the squad as Rangers beat St. Mirren 3-0 on Saturday, a win that ensured they would lift their first league title in 10 years if bitter rivals Celtic failed to beat Dundee United on Sunday.

That is exactly what happened as Celtic, who had won the past nine Scottish top-flight titles in a row, played to a 0-0 draw with Dundee United.

As a consequence, Rangers secured their 55th Premiership trophy – more than any other team in Scottish football history.

The triumph, made even sweeter given that Rangers are still unbeaten in this campaign and are 20 points ahead of their rivals, was widely celebrated by Steven Gerrard and his players, with Zungu in the middle of the celebrations.

The Scottish giants have now reclaimed the throne among football's teams with the most league titles to their name after Northern Ireland side Linfield F.C. had equalled Rangers' tally of 54 accolades in the 2019/20 campaign.

Rivals Celtic remain in third spot having collected 51 Premierships in their illustrious history, while further down the ranking is Pitso Mosimane's Al Ahly, who are the most successful team on the African continent.

The Club of the Century has won the Egyptian Premier League 42 times, with Mosimane lifting the Red Devils' most recent league title shortly after he joined.
