Rangers are extremely close to winning the title and getting promoted into the Scottish first division after managing a 1-0 win over East Fife. However, Ally McCoist was not entirely happy with the victory since he felt that the players did not perform up to their usual standards.

Rangers have not lost a match since the first week of August of last year. This impressive run of form has helped them open a 24 point lead over second placed Dunfermline. The match could have easily finished as the second draw for Rangers in just the last three matches.

Only a late penalty from McCulloch saw the club secure three points. The club will be taking on Rovers in the William Hill Scottish Cup quarter-final next week. Even though this was a disappointing performance, McCoist says that he would happily accept such a performance and result when they take on Rovers. After having seen Celtic knocked out of the Scottish club at a much earlier stage, Rangers will be hoping at the possibility of a potential title tilt this campaign. Despite this, McCoist will be aware that there are several good teams standing between Rangers and the final itself.

Rangers are now just six points away from sealing the title.
"I'm a little disappointed and the players are too. But results are the most important thing and we kept going to get it. It's another goal in the last minute and the spirit amongst the boys is great. But apart from Templeton we lacked a bit of spark. David was the man who was going to do something for us - the one bright light for us. You want to play well, you want to pass the ball better, of course you do,” said McCoist.

Rangers return to league action against Airdrieonians.
