Ally McCoist: Postponement was the correct decision

The Ibrox club had arrived at Ochilview seeking a 21st successive victory.

But the match was called off when the extreme weather conditions battered Scotland for most of the day.

Heavy downpours also caused flooding outside the ground and the decision to cancel the match was made just two hours before the scheduled 5.30pm kick-off.

McCoist said: "It was 100 per-cent the right decision.

"It would be farcical to try and play the game in those conditions because safety is of paramount importance in these situations.

"It's not just fans in the stadium, it's also fans travelling to the game as well that you have to consider, so for all these reasons the correct decision has been made."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
