BOOKMAKER Paddy Power have paid out on Rangers winning the Irn-Bru Third Division title – four months before the end of the season.

With Ally McCoist's side 19 points clear at the top of the table, there is little chance of the Gers being denied.

They have also settled bets on dominant Queen of the South taking the Second Division crown, a move that has had them shell out £40,000 to winning punters.

A Paddy Power spokesperson said: "We see no chance of Queens or Rangers choking at this stage and so we're paying out this January, although it will be us choking in May if either team lets it slip,"
