Chris Hegarty, Nicky Law, Ian Black and Dean Shiels were on target at Ibrox where the hosts opened their League 1 campaign with a straightforward three points.

This followed on from last Saturday's cup defeat at Forfar and Wallace admitted: "We were all devastated in that dressing room last week but we knew we couldn't feel sorry for ourselves.

"It was actually quite good in a way that we had the Newcastle game a couple of days later because that lifted the spirits really quickly for us.

"We performed well on the night against top opposition (Tuesday's friendly at Ibrox ended 1-1) and that set us up for a good week.

"We were ready and we were buzzing come Friday and I think we have put a message out that we are ready to try to put a lot of goals past teams."

heyremind me of Utd's treble winning side. Swashbuckling and risk prone. We ha Jaap Stam to paper over the cracks at the back though. Not sure they have their Jaap yet.

he solution is to not feel sorry for any of Jabba, Gold or Sullivan. They're all deeply unpleasant and all deserve each other. If only West Ham would sign Barton and Suarez then no one would ever need to despise any other club.
