The Rangers manager saw the Northern Ireland striker bag his first club treble and praised the 23-year-old for his contribution.
Little drew Rangers level after they fell behind and ensured they ended the half ahead, before notching his third and Rangers’ fourth in the second period.
It was a great moment for Little and McCoist praised the forward for his all action style as well as his finishing.
The boss said: “There’s always something happening when Andy’s in town that’s for sure!
“He creates chances and probably could have had another two. He should have squared one to Sandaza but he was great so we have no problems with Andy.
“He has bundles of energy and he makes things happen even when we’re playing him in a position that probably wouldn’t be his most favoured at the moment.
“He is well aware, as are the other lads, that it’s a small sacrifice in terms of the overall team performance which is the most important thing.
“He certainly looks as though he is going to get on the end of things for us, that’s for sure.”
