ALLY McCOIST has urged Rangers to take their performance levels from Saturday’s win at Stenhousemuir into the final three games of the season.

The Light Blues played well at Ochilview as they scored good goals through Stevie Smith, Dean Shiels, Lee McCulloch and Nicky Law and cruised to a 4-0 win over the Warriors.

It was one of the team’s better displays of recent weeks and the result took Gers 36 points clear of second-placed Dunfermline, with a game in hand.

In turn, it kept the side’s unbeaten run in the league going strong and having played 33 times now, McCoist’s men have still just dropped four points all campaign.

Rangers host Ayr United in their penultimate home fixture of 2013/14 tomorrow night as they look to keep build on a run of a run of eight consecutive league victories.

And McCoist admits he’d love to see more of the same as he looks for his squad to end the season on a high.

He said: “We really needed to win the game but the level of performance and the quality of one or two of the finishes were an added bonus.

“Saturday’s was one of our better performances of recent weeks and it was just the boost everybody needed after a couple of disappointing results.

“Hopefully, with three games left, we can continue playing well and with a bit of pressure off the boys, hopefully we can just go and enjoy them.

“That certainly looked the case at Stenhousemuir and hopefully it will be the case for the last three games as well.”

McCoist knows Rangers might not get much credit from certain quarters if they go through their whole League One campaign unbeaten.

Nevertheless, he’ll be proud of his players if it happens and has argued it would still be something to shout about even if it will be expected by some.

McCoist added: “If we can stay unbeaten in those matches and go right through the league season without losing, it would be an achievement.

“How big an achievement it would be is for everybody else to argue about but winning the league is an achievement.

“If you’re fortunate to do it undefeated, that’s an achievement as well but it’s not for us to get involved in the argument about how much.”
