Steven Gerrard and his team Rangers went to a warm training camp of 6 days in Tenerife to get a head start in the title race.
The Ibrox club is on par with their fierce rivals Celtic on top of the Scottish premiership, although the hoops have a game in their hands.
Gerrard and Co. were shown at Glasgow Airport for their 4 hour 40-minute flight to the Spanish island off the coast of North Africa.

The Liverpool legend wore a serious expression, flanked by assistant coach Gary McAllister.
But some of the players seemed to be in higher spirtits and Jon Flanagan saw a joke with goalkeeper Allan McGregor.
Part of the team was also asked for selfies from Rangers fans who flew themselves on holiday.
No doubt some of the Rangers' believers will have kept their eyes open for new signing of Jermain Defoe in the departure lounge, but the borrowing Bournemouth striker will meet his new teammates later on Monday.
Striker Kyle Lafferty will be looking forward to returning refreshed in the second half of the season

In Tenerife, Rangers is staying in a five-star Costa Adeje resort near the beach.
Between the rigor of training, the players will be able to use their time in one of the five swimming pools and two tennis courts.
They will work at Top Training, a facility that has been used by a number of European clubs over the years, including Liverpool under Jurgen Klopp prior to the departure of Gerrard.
The temperatures this week are expected to reach the 20th and the manager hopes that a heavy training camp will pay dividends in the title race in the second half of the season.
