Rangers manager Ally McCoist admits Peterhead have shattered any illusions his players may have had about success coming easy to them in the Irn-Bru Third Division this season.

The 2-2 draw at Balmoor was the first league fixture ever played by the Glasgow giants outside of Scottish football's top light, having lost their Clydesdale Bank Premier League status when the club was consigned to liquidation this summer.

McCoist said: "I'm not accusing them of anything but I did say to the players after the game that if any of them thought for a minute that they were going to turn up at these away grounds - or at home for that matter - and pick up three points without going through some hard work and earning the three points, that might just be a rude awakening to one or two."
