Ally McCoist: Victory at Stenhousemuir was 'for the fans'

Ally McCoist: Victory at Stenhousemuir was 'for the fans'

Jon Daly grabbed the only goal of the game in Tuesday's last-four clash against Stenhousemuir to book a final date with Raith Rovers in April.

McCoist said: "It means everything to us all to be in the final. It's part of the process back to where we want to be. We haven't been in a final for a long, long time.

"There was certainly nobody within our club who was underestimating how important it was for us to get there.

"It's a great day out and it gives the players and the staff the opportunity to go to a final. More importantly, it gives the supporters a big day out.

"If anybody needed a big thank you and a day out it's our supporters so it's great.

"It was just as difficult a game as I thought it was going to be. Until you get the first goal you are alway concerned.

"In that respect, it was as hard as we thought it would be. I don't think in the grand scheme of things that anybody could grudge us the victory.

"We hit the crossbar three times and we thought we might have had a penalty."

Stenhousemuir boss Martyn Corrigan said: "The game plan worked a treat and we created a few opportunities. It's just unfortunate we didn't take them.

"The boys were excellent. I was disappointed that a Stenhousemuir player didn't get man of the match.

"On another day, we might have been in the final. We didn't perform well at Ibrox (8-0 defeat) and this game shows how far we have come."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
