The Rangers manager Ally McCoist has said that he would have himself booed the team if given the opportunity after the disappointing 1-1 draw with Montrose.

Rangers were playing at home against Montrose looking to improve on their significant advantage at the top of the table. The club are already one of the favourites to gain promotion into the second division of Scottish football. They almost have a 20 point advantage at the top of the table, but they could have improved their lead even more had they taken all three points from the match.

Despite taking the lead in the match to an own goal from Crawford just before the first half break, Rangers were unable to improve on that dominance in the second half. They created several opportunities and had numerous shots on target. However, they were not clinical in the finishing and this provided Montrose with great confidence going into the final few minutes of the match. They pushed many men forward in the hope of getting an equaliser and got their reward to a goal from Gray in the 89th minute. Rangers will be taking on the United in the Scottish cup in the next match. This match will finally see Rangers against a top division team after a long time.

“It was Elgin all over again. I could see it coming. I don’t know if it’s a case of the players switching off. But they better get switched back on pretty quickly or they will be switched off for good. This match just told me I was right when I said where I thought we were. I hope it serves as a massive wake-up call for the entire team because I am angry with all of them. That level of performance can’t and won’t be tolerated,” said McCoist.
