McCoist salutes Gers' spirit

Published Add your comment

Rangers manager Ally McCoist spoke of his immense pride in his players after they delivered 90 minutes of respite from the club's financial crisis with a 4-1 victory at Inverness.

Rangers lost at home to Kilmarnock last weekend in their first match since going into administration, but they quickly brushed off the off-field worries as goals from Steven Davis and Sone Aluko put them two ahead. Andrew Little produced a composed finish on his first Premier League start and Lee McCulloch netted after Inverness defender Steve Williams had headed a goal back.

McCoist was hugely satisfied with the reaction of his players, and he said: "I said to the boys before the game that the one thing they needed as much as anything today was a healthy respect for each other to go and play. And they did that. They have been battered, bruised and taken a couple of standing counts but they are certainly not down and far from out."
