A relaxed Ally McCoist spoke of his satisfaction at a job well done following Rangers’ 3-0 Scottish Cup win over Airdrieonians.
Goals from Jon Daly (2) and David Templeton sealed the win for the Gers at Ibrox.
“We totally deserved to win,” said McCoist.
“We got our just rewards in the second half. I just told them to keep going at half-time.”
McCoist enthused over striker Daly’s two goals that finally broke the deadlock after a first half of frustration for the 22,533 crowd, taking the former Dundee United striker’s tally to 14 goals in 13 games.
“Jon’s first goal was a really good finish, the second a typical striker’s opportunist effort,” he added.
“I always knew he would score goals – and I’m sure there’s more to come.
“He’s a very important presence for us both on and off the park. He’s a really good example for the younger players to look up to.”
McCoist admits he doesn’t care who Rangers meet in the fourth round.
“I would certainly prefer a home tie,” he said.
“However ,we’re not really in a position to pick and choose. A tie against a Premiership club would certainly be a formidable test.”
