Boss Prize For Ally

Written by 

ALLY McCOIST has been named as the SPFL League One manager of the month for the second time this season.

The Rangers boss collected his prize prior to meeting the media this morning ahead of his press conference previewing tomorrow’s game with Ayr United.

As fate would have it, he collected the September prize at Somerset Park following a 2-0 win against the Honest Men on October 6.

January is traditionally a hard month for most teams as the volume of games played in the first half of a season begins to take its toll.

But while performances weren’t always perfect from the Light Blues, they did win each of their each of their five title race fixtures in that period.

Gers got 2014 underway with a 1-0 victory against Airdrieonians on January 2, with Lewis Macleod scoring the only goal at New Broomfield.

Three days later, Nicky Law’s strikes either side of half-time were enough to edge out Stenhousemuir 2-0 at Ochilview.

A pair of 2-0 wins against East Fife – courtesy of Dean Shiels’ double – and Forfar, where Bilel Mohsni and David Templeton scored, came next.

The division leaders then rounded off the month with a hard-fought 3-2 success against Arbroath, in which Jon Daly, Templeton and Lee McCulloch found the net.

Combined with December’s league win at Dunfermline, another this month against Brechin and a Scottish Cup rout of the Pars, Gers are on an eight-match winning run.

They’ve also won 29 of their 31 competitive outings in 2013/14 and that form has them still chasing silverware on three fronts.

They look certain to claim the League One crown over the next few weeks but also remain in two other knockout events as well.

They’ll face Raith in the Ramsdens Cup final on April 6 at Easter Road, while they’ll host Albion Rovers in the last eight of the Scottish Cup on a date to be announced next month.
