Kevin Thomson sees no reason why Rangers cannot dominate Scottish football for years to come after wrestling the title from Celtic last season.
Celtic missed out on a fourth consecutive SPL title in May courtesy of Gers' 3-0 win over Dundee United on the final day of the season.
Rangers have now been crowned Scottish champions a whopping 52 times. 10 more times than their city rivals, a gap Thomson does not believe will be closed anytime soon.
The former Hibernian man believes the way that the SPL is shaped that Tony Mowbray's Celtic will find it a difficult job to finish top of the table in the coming years.
"The way Scottish football is at the moment, the team that's in the ascendancy is really hard to overcome," explained Thomson.
"I think the team who wins the league can go on and win the league year after year after year.
"With the squad we have at this club, and the manager we have at the club and the fantastic players we have, there is no reason why we can't go and win back to back titles.
"I'm pretty sure the quality of the squad is more than capable of doing that."
A promising start to the season was brought to an abrupt end when Thomson suffered a cruciate injury back in November.
He is now back on the road to recovery and expected to return early in the new campaign.
"I've had a wee taste of it and felt I played my part, although I would rather have played a part nearer the end of the season," he continued.
"To have a taste of it, to have a winner's medal - hopefully that will be the first of many. I'll be busting a gut to make sure of that."
