Rangers boss Ally McCoist has backed his players after chief executive Charles Green suggested this was the worst Ibrox team in history.
Despite ‘Gers taking out the Third Division title, Green said McCoist’s men had the least quality of any other Rangers squad but the manager disagreed with that statement after the weekend’s 4-1 win over Queen’s Park.
"Charles is relatively new to Rangers. He knows the job he's got to do, and we've all got to do, and we're looking forward to doing it,” said McCoist.
"In my opinion, it's not the worst Rangers team.
"I'm not sure how many titles Charles has won in his career but I've been very fortunate to win 14 at our football club, including as assistant manager.
"That title we were all involved in just there is the hardest one.
"I know what it takes to win a title. It doesn't matter what division you are in, it takes a special group of people and talent and hard work to win titles.
"We've got a group of boys who were assembled in the space of six or seven days and have managed to win a title and they are 24 points clear.
"I would think everybody could maybe take a wee step back and offer some congratulations to those boys. I'm certainly doing that right now."
