Stirling Albion v Rangers – match reaction

Binos boss Greig McDonald heaped praise on his players after they came from behind to earn a deserved 1-1 draw against leaders Rangers at a frosty Forthbank on Tuesday night.

Andy Little gave the visitors an early lead but Ross Forsyth’s first goal since October 2010 brought us level six minutes after the interval as we halted Rangers’ nine-game winning run on the road.

McDonald, who will undergo minor knee surgery on Thursday but will take the team as usual at Elgin on Saturday, said: “I’m delighted with the performance and we fully deserved the draw. Rangers didn’t cause as many problems as they did here the last time – David Crawford had a couple of saves but so did Neil Alexander.

“We got a little bit of bad coverage for one or two tackles last time and we were keen to go out and show what we could do – some of our passing moves were excellent. Our set-pieces, especially with Kieran McAnespie’s delivery, are a strength against any team and thankfully Ross was able to stick the ball in the net.”

Rangers manager Ally McCoist said: “We missed some chances to win the game but the second-half performance was really disappointing and our defending at set-plays has not been good enough. We put good balls into Stirling’s box but they headed them away, whereas we didn’t do that.”
