McCoist over the moon after clinching second Rangers title

Ally McCoist was in a jubilant mood after Rangers secured the Scottish League One title on Wednesday night.

'Gers beat Airdrie 3-0 at Ibrox to move 26 points clear at the summit of the tier three table, allowing them to clinch the 2013/14 premiership.

The title is the second on the trot for manager McCoist, after they took out the Third Division last term, and the former star striker was over the moon with the way the season had panned out thus far.

"We are absolutely delighted, not only to wrap the title up but with the manner we wrapped it up, particularly in the first half, which was really pleasing and we are thrilled for the players, the staff and the supporters," he said after Lee McCulloch's first-half hat-trick.

"It has been a terrific league campaign and I thought we finished it well.

"I think 26 wins and two draws is a great achievement, the players deserve an enormous amount of credit, as do the supporters.

"These are all championships that we have to win, to get back to where we want to be, in the top flight.

"These are stages in our recovery which must be met so I think it is only fair that they should be celebrated as you would winning any league.

"There are a lot of boys in the dressing room winning their first league, the majority of players will go through their careers and not win a league.

"The Championship could and hopefully will be, a great league next year so we are certainly planning for that and hopefully we strengthen and continue to build for the championship and for the years after that."
