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."

e made his power play to try and get Sheikhy to raise his wages or trade him to PSG. PSG were probably not interested and he is stuck with no cake and no vacation. @Jay_D> Surely you jest about FFP being real, right? All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
