McCoist's Buckie Verdict

McCoist's Buckie Verdict

Manager Ally McCoist was delighted with both the run out, some of the passages of play, and the victory we gained over Buckie Thistle last night in our first pre season friendly of the summer.

Over and above all of that though was the showing of 19 year old Calum Gallagher who grabbed himself a brace on the night, and the gaffer told the Official Site that this was exactly the kind of impact he wanted to see from the youngsters when he brought them into the first team fold.

'That's what we want from the younger ones. We want them to follow the example of people like Kenny and Boydy. They're lads with a little bit of experience and Calum certainly did well. He took his two goals very well.'

McCoist says that for the first it was a great cross from Stevie Smith and it was a very brave header, and he went on to credit Barrie McKay who he thought was also 'excellent' on the night for his part in helping to create the second, before describing Gallagher's finishing as 'cool, and calm.'

New signing and returning Kenny Miller grabbed our third on the night, and the manager went on to say of the 34 year old.

'It's always nice when you come to a club or come back to a club and you're a forward then you score, it was good for Kenny to do that. We've always been confident in guys like him and Boydy and if we give them chances, they will certainly get goals. I know it was just the first game but it was still good for Kenny to get off the mark.'

As for the overall performance, the gaffer went on to say that he was satisfied with our showing given the applicable fitness levels at the moment, and he was pleased with our movement and the way that players were looking for space and opening themselves up to receiving the ball and the pleasing thing for him is he knows we'll get better at that as we get fitter.

'The lads will certainly get fitter, stronger and better but for a first game we're happy.'

Having McCulloch returning to Ibrox will add a little extra spite to the occasion yet despite them being the higher league side it you sense Rangers will actually be the favourites.
