Ally McCoist was an angry and frustrated Rangers manager on Boxing Day as he reflected on his side’s first League One setback of the season – a 1-1 draw with Stranraer at Ibrox.
Jamie Longworth struck deep into injury time to cancel out Lee McCulloch’s first-half penalty and claim a share of the points.
“It’s been a really disappointing day. Our players have received a lot of praise for their performances in the first-half of the season – but today simply wasn’t good enough,” he said.
“We looked like a team that hadn’t played for three weeks, a team that needed a game. We weren’t particularly good in the first half, although we probably deserved to be a goal ahead.”
Yesterday’s draw means that Rangers have lost their 100% League record as well as their all-time record run of consecutive wins in all competitions coming to a halt at 20.
“I’m not interested in the loss of the 100% League record – that’s the least of my concerns at the moment,” added McCoist. “I’m only concerned about the level of performance.”
One positive for McCoist was the return of Andy Little following a seven-week absence with a fractured jaw.
“I was delighted to see Andy back – he’s made a terrific recovery.”
