Rangers secured their eighth league title, their first since 2016, on a dramatic match-day 37. Key defeats for Remo Stars and Enyimba against Sunshine Stars and Sporting Lagos, respectively, played crucial roles in sealing the championship for Rangers.

Under the guidance of coach Fidelis Ilechukwu, Rangers adopted an assertive approach in their decisive match against Insurance. Kenechukwu Agu opened the scoring in the 33rd minute, and Chidiebere Nwobodo extended the lead in the 65th minute, securing the victory.

Rangers will represent Nigeria in the forthcoming CAF Champions League, hoping for a successful campaign following their NPFL triumph.
