Shire silenced Ibrox when they took the lead through Andrew Stirling five minutes before the break but a second half double from Andy Little and a goal for skipper Lee McCullock saw Rangers to a 3-1 win.

The victory came just 48 hours after the club learned that Rangers would not be stripped of the trophies they won between 2001 and 2011.

An independent commission - chaired by Lord Nimmo Smith - ruled that no sporting advantage was gained as a result of the non-disclosure of some payments to players relating to Employee Benefit Trusts.

"It's been a fantastic 48 hours for the club and it ended really well," said McCoist. "The first 45 minutes obviously weren't great but the victory was the most important thing. It's been a great day."

Celtic issued a statement declaring their shock at the ruling handed down by Lord Nimmo but McCoist said: "I was neither surprised nor disappointed to be honest with you.

"It went to a commission with Lord Nimmo Smith and two very prominent QCs. You would have to say that's what Lord Nimmo Smith does for a living, making decisions.

"I'd have to say he's very good at it. So I would rather take his decision than anybody else's so we are delighted."

recently had to complete a difficult project at work. I had to come in early, stay late. I even had to work some 7 day weeks. Anyway, long story short, I'm now a member of Britain First. Slippery slope.
