McCoist tells Rangers players to fight to regain Championship gong

Rangers boss Ally McCoist has told his players they must keep the pressure on Celtic if they are to retain their SPL title. The Light Blues are out of every other competition following their exit from the William Hill Scottish Cup at the hands of Dundee United last week.

McCoist said: "We have to keep asking questions and keep winning games.

"Everybody at our club knows the importance of that.

"It's a massive game for us on Saturday for a number of reasons, coming back off the defeat in the cup and having to maintain our league challenge."

However, McCoist insists the mood in the camp is good ahead of the clash with Dunfermline.

He said: "There is disappointment when you lose a game but we've had a couple of good meetings and the training sessions have been excellent.

"The boys know what's required, they know they have to win games.

"We have to do everything we can to retain our championship, which is going to be very difficult.

"Celtic had a great result again the other night and that doesn't make it any easier, that's for sure."
