Substitute Fraser Aird scored in the dying seconds to ensure McCoist's first trip to Hampden Park as manager ended in victory.

And McCoist also had empathy with opposition manager Gardner Speirs, whose side finished the game with 10 men after James Brough was dismissed on a second yellow card.

McCoist said: "Of course I have sympathy. Gardner is a good lad. His team gives him absolutely everything and I'm sure you will agree they were really well organised.

"They probably had their better opportunities when we were a bit reckless in pushing forward. It would need to be a cruel man who didn't have any degree of sympathy for the opposition.

"At the same time, I've got to look after our own corner and I'm thrilled with the victory. It was a relief.

"To be honest, I think we lost our shape a little bit a couple of times late on in pursuit of a goal, which is inexcusable.

"I can understand the desire to get a goal but we should have been more solid."

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
