McCoist thrilled as Rangers keep double hopes alive

Rangers manager Ally McCoist was delighted his side were able to progress to the semi-finals of the Scottish Cup on Monday night.

The Glasgow club are still in the hunt for a trophy double after beating Albion Rovers 2-0 at New Douglas Park in their quarter-final replay following the 1-1 draw at Ibrox just over a week ago.

After clinching the Scottish League One title last week, McCoist's side are still alive in their pursuit of a domestic double and the boss was full of praise for their winning performance.

"It was important we got the first goal and we did - a well-taken goal from Fraser," he said after Fraser Aird and Jon Daly scored either side of the break.

"After that we tried to get them to open up and come out. Tried to entice them out but they didn't, they stuck to their plan which was pretty successful.

"I thought our passing could have been a lot better but the game died out a little towards the end as we were happy to take the two-nothing."

Ahead of next month's semi-final with Dundee United, the 'Gers boss added: "We'll have to play better against Dundee United. We'll have to be at the top of our game and up to the challenge. It should be a cracker."
