Rangers manager Walter Smith welcomed Barry Ferguson back into the fold after watching his players run riot with a 5-0 win over Inverness Caledonian Thistle.

The skipper made his comeback early in the second half of the Clydesdale Bank Premier League clash at Ibrox after five months out of action with an ankle injury.

Smith said: "It's good to see Barry back. The game was maybe a little bit flat at that stage but it was a good game for him to come back in."

He added: "With four games in the next couple of weeks, we should see him back to full fitness at the end of that period.

"We are delighted to see him back. He has been out for five months and we just have to make sure everything is right with him.

"The team have been doing well and it's not always easy to make changes. He led from the front last season and it will take him a few games to get back so I look forward to that."
