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."

S I've always envisioned him as a Pirlo or a Scholes, though he needs some of Andy Murray's conditioning and shiny, ankle supports to keep his own from buckling under the tackles that will (inevitably) come his way. He's got the physique and low centre of gravity to flourish, but needs to make himself more resilient.

Time For Another Wenger U-Turn On Wilshere?

A

s a United fan I fell I can say this without accusation of bias, Sergio Aguero is for me the only player close to Ronaldo or Messi, what goes against him is his injury record, Hazard is good in fits but doesn't give enough end product in my eyes, Tevez would be 4th for me
