Reaction to Queen of South win as Gers reach semi's - Rangers morning news

Rangers 3

Draw for Ramsdens Cup tomorrow as fans react to Black's betting scandal

Rangers overcame holders Queen of the South 3-0 in last night’s Ramsden’s Cup clash at Palmerston Park.

The Gers booked their place in the last four courtesy of goals from Bilel Mohsni, Jon Daly and Lee McCulloch. They will face one of Annan Athletic, Stenhousemuir and Raith Rovers in the semi-finals with the draw taking place tomorrow.

Manager Ally McCoist said in the Evening Times that it would be nice for Rangers to win the trophy, but stressed that the league is his priority.

“It would be great to win it. We want to win every trophy we are in. We were disappointed last year to get knocked out by the team we beat tonight. The one I want to win is the league, I won’t be in a job if we don’t get promoted and win the league.

“Everything else we enter we want to win. We want to win both cups, the Scottish and the Ramsdens.”

The manager also praised captain Lee McCulloch and Bilel Mohnsi for their efforts at centre-back.

“Lee has been terrific as you know and we always felt that if we could get Bilel signed he would be great for the team.

“They look as though they’ve got a partnership forming which is great.”

Away from the cup win against Queen of the South, according to the Daily Record, not many Gers fans accepted the apology from Ian Black over his betting scandal, with many ringing Colin Duncan with rather cynical views on Black’s apology to say the least.
