Cammy Bell: we'll put Albion Rovers blow behind us...and their goalie could have done it differently at that goal

Cammy Bell has backed Rangers to put their Albion Rovers disappointment behind them and claim the win against Airdrie that would clinch the Scottish League One Title.

The Light Blues were forced to battle for a 1-1 draw in the William Hill Scottish Cup tie at the weekend after the Coatbridge men took a shock lead at Ibrox.

Both sides will do it all again in Monday's replay as they fight for the right to face Dundee United in the last four.

But, right now, Rangers are focused on delivering the goods in Wednesday's game against Airdrie to claim the championship crown.

Goalkeeper Bell said: "We are always disappointed if we don't win games. That's just Rangers Football Club.

"We just need to pick ourselves up, which we have done before.

"We have drawn a couple of games this season so we will pick ourselves up and move on to the game against Airdrie.

"You want to win it with style but I would always take a result over the style of football.

"At the end of the day results matter and that's what takes you places and wins you things. We are focused on getting the result.

"I've never won a title before so it will be a great occasion if we do it on Wednesday."

One of the major talking points following the draw with Rovers was whether Bilel Mohsni's controversial equaliser should have been allowed to stand amid claims goalkeeper Neil Parry was fouled.

Asked for his own thoughts, Gers number one Bell said: "I think I would have done things differently as a goalkeeper to be honest.

"You've got to protect yourself. You've got the licence to bring your leg up and protect yourself.

"It's a contact sport. You're going to get a little nudge and it depends how much the referee sees it as being a foul or not.

"He didn't see it as a foul, it was a goal and one that we gratefully accepted."
