McCoist delight with performance, councillor wants to buy shares - Rangers morning news

Rangers FC

Also, Daly pleased with performance and Ian Black thanks fans

Rangers had a good weekend as they maintained their 100% start to their league season after thrashing Stenhousemuir 8-0 at Ibrox to stay five points clear at the top of League One.

Striker Jon Daly got four of the goals and was delighted that the side could give the Ibrox crowd something to shout about.

He said: ‘You always want to score in front of the home fans. They’ve been fantastic this year.

‘Again, it was almost a full house at home so it was nice to put on a performance and, for me personally, it’s nice to score goals at Ibrox. I’ve got off the mark at home now and hopefully I can carry it on.’

Manager Ally McCoist was delighted with the performance of his side as well as the result.

‘I felt we were on top for just about the entire 90 minutes and I said that to the lads after the match.

‘There will be periods – even when you win and win comfortably – where there will be slackness and the opposition will have some possession.

‘But I don’t think that was the case at all. We are genuinely delighted with the way things went and maintaining our performance for 90 minutes.’

Midfielder Ian Black thanked the Rangers fans for their backing after returning from a three match ban for betting offences.

Black said: ‘It was great to pull on the Rangers jersey and get back playing again and I would like to thank the fans for their magnificent support throughout today’s game.

‘I just want to focus on football now and help take this great club back to the top.’

A councillor who won £2m on the national lottery has said they would like to invest it in Rangers.

Ian McMillan said: ‘I’ll buy some new Rangers shares. I’m not looking to get a place on the board or anything like that.

‘But I’d like to invest in the club and get a plaque with my name on it.

‘I had a couple of shares in the oldco Rangers so I’ll definitely be buying some new ones.’
