McCoist - one small step for Rangers

Published Add your comment

Manager Ally McCoist believes the 2-0 win over Motherwell in the Scottish Communities League Cup proves Rangers can still compete with the best Scottish football has to offer.

Goals from Lee McCulloch and Dean Shiels secured victory at Ibrox and allowed the Light Blues to progress to the quarter-finals of the competition. The third-round tie was the first opportunity for Rangers to face Clydesdale Bank Premier League opposition since being consigned to liquidation in the summer and voted into the Irn-Bru Third Division.

"It was really satisfying. I thought the performance warranted the victory and the two goals were top-class," said McCoist.
