McCoist not concerned about Jelavic

Published Add your comment

Rangers manager Ally McCoist has backed Nikica Jelavic to return to top form soon after the forward was back on the scoresheet in their 2-1 win over Dunfermline in the Clydesdale Bank Premier League.

The Croatian converted from the penalty spot to help seal the points at Ibrox but passed up chances either side of his goal. Jelavic appeared to have suffered a slump in form as Rangers failed to find the back of the net in their last two outings against St Johnstone and Kilmarnock but McCoist is not worried about his star striker.

He said: "I'm not overly concerned. Strikers are judged on their goals and he has scored so many great, important goals for us since he has been here. I don't think it would be right to start criticising him for missing one or two chances."
