Rangers fall to shock St Mirren defeat

Rangers fell to their first defeat of the season, 1-0 at St Mirren, and boss Walter Smith bemoaned their lack of a cutting edge. They even had a confident shout for a penalty turned down late on.

"We just look at our own team more than anything else," said Smith.

"That was St Mirren's first attempt on goal and we created a few and didn't manage to score so it was frustrating from that point of view.

"We had the greater possession in the match but we didn't really create that many clear-cut opportunities.

"In fairness, St Mirren set their stall out well and worked very hard to prevent us from doing that.

"Throughout the match, we struggled in that respect and it was only in the latter stages when we applied a lot of forceful pressure that we looked as though we were going to get a goal or two.

"On another day, we might have got that. But we didn't."
