St Mirren and Rangers must meet again to decide who progresses to the quarter-finals of the Scottish Cup after a goal-less encounter at St Mirren Park.

Rangers assistant manager Ally McCoist: "It was a really tough game. I probably think both teams deserve another crack at it. I don't think there was much between the sides today.

"St Mirren made it incredibly difficult for us. They've got two lads up front that work very hard, hold the ball up well and are always an aerial threat.

"St Mirren definitely looked more dangerous. I thought we handled the threat pretty well.

"I didn't think we created an awful lot today and that was a disappointment for us. We didn't feel we created as much as we normally do or indeed should have.

"We could've done without a replay but if you're asking me would I rather that we were still in the cup, the obvious answer would be yes.

"The bonuses to come out of the game today are that we're still in the cup and we've got our two top scorers back. Another bonus is the fact that we got a clean sheet."
