McCoist: we must keep run going

Rangers won their ninth consecutive league game, and moved 12 points clear at the top of the third division, with victory over Clyde yesterday, but Ally McCoist insisted afterwards that his team will not take winning the title for granted, and warned his players of becoming complacent.

The 3-0 victory at Ibrox was comprehensive, although it required an impressive solo display by David Templeton to spark the win. The former Hearts winger created the opening goal and scored the second, and his performance caught the eye, although McCoist also added that his team was playing below its potential.

"We can play better and we will," McCoist said. "We could have done more in forward areas but we were solid defensively and it's been a good day's work. I certainly hope we run away with the league. We'll continue to treat every team with respect and look to win games on merit.

"We have to earn the right to run away with it and there's a long way to go. It's certainly not the best we have played. But with victories comes a great degree of confidence and the team is benefiting from that just now.

"It's important to keep the momentum going because it has an effect on the opposition, as well.
