MANAGER QUOTES

Ally McCoist (Rangers) (on trialist winger Sone Aluko): "He can play on either side. He has definitely got talent. There is no doubt about that. We're hopeful we can get him in next week, and have a chat. And after that, see where it goes."

Steve Lomas (St Johnstone): ''I keep hearing Rangers have been average at times but, I'll tell you what, if that record is average I would take it any time,'' said Lomas. ''They have very good players and we know we will have to be at our maximum to compete and put in a good performance."
