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."
