Enugu Rangers are Nigeria League champions

Rangers International of Enugu have emerged as the champions of the Nigeria Professional Football League for the 2015/16 season.

The Flying Antelopes beat Ikorodu United 2-1 away from home at the MKO Abiola Stadium on Sunday to end their 32-year wait for silverware.

Obinna Nwobodo with a stunning strike and Chisom Egbuchulam scored first half goals to help Rangers clinching the League title with a game left to spare.

Wikki Tourists and Rivers United who were all in the hunt for the league shield also failed to get the desired results in their respective games.

While Wikki lost 1-0 in Ibadan against Shooting Stars, Rivers United lost the initiative as they could only play a barren draw at home against Abia Warriors.

Rangers with the win in Abeokuta have an unassailable 60 points.
