ALLY MCCOIST admitted he had ‘plenty of complaints’ after watching his side fall to their third defeat of the season to Jim McInally’s Peterhead at Ibrox.

The manager was disappointed with some of the performances from his players in the top of the table clash, albeit he felt they should have had three points in the bag at half time after squandering a couple of guilt-edged chances.

The Third Division title might already be won but today’s result was another wake-up call for the Gers players and McCoist again reiterated that his squad needs to be bolstered as the club prepares to take its next step on the journey back to the top. 

Speaking at his post-match press conference he said: “I’ve got plenty of complaints, we should have been home and dry in the first half.

“We had two chances off the post that we should have converted and obviously losing the goal, I feel like an old record player here but we basically just dropped our man at the back post and he got a free header.

“So I’ve got plenty of complaints, in the second half we huffed and puffed but I think actually it’s really evident where we are at this moment and what needs to be done.

“Nothing has changed over the past couple of weeks. We need freshness but in terms of positives again I thought Gasparotto looks as though he is doing alright when he went on at centre back and young Stoney came on and did fine.

“There were a couple of disappointments from individuals that we are looking for. So as I say the boys, although they got the job done in terms of winning the league and moving on to the next step, they have a lot to play for.

“There was certainly a couple of disappointments today in terms of individual performances but some of the young lads did fine as well.”
