Rangers boss Ally McCoist thought his side was well worth the three points they claimed from the 2-0 win over Peterhead.

Lee McCulloch scored his 17th goal of the season to give the Light Blues the lead and the points were wrapped up by a goal

"Other than a scare in the first couple of minutes, I thought we were fairly solid," McCoist said. "To be fair, I would have settled for everything we got today, which was an efficient, solid performance, with a couple of well-worked goals.

"With our two centre-halves hobbling off the pitch injured on Friday, I would have to say I'm absolutely delighted with the day's work.

"Big Lee McCulloch has been great. I've asked the older boys to step up. Boys like Wallace, Ian Black, Neil Alexander, Dean Shiels and McCulloch are really important players for us and they are important men for us.

"The younger boys need marshalling through some of the games and a guiding hand is really required on the park.

"The fact that Lee has to go straight back to centre-half is not a problem for him. We have, thankfully, good older pros who will put the team before their own requirements. With the situation at the moment, that's badly needed."
