Rangers captain David Weir has insisted that his players do not lack discipline following their explosive Scottish Cup exit to Celtic on Wednesday.

Tempers flared as Steven Whittaker, Madjid Bougherra and El Hadji Diouf were all shown red cards, while assistant manager Ally McCoist clashed angrily with Celtic boss Neil Lennon after the final whistle.

But Weir believes Rangers, who maintained their SPL title challenge with a 1-0 win at St Mirren on Sunday, do not have a deeper problem controlling their players.

"I disagree with people questioning our discipline. I don't think there is a problem," said Weir. "Anything that happened the other night, was all debatable. You could argue either way on any of the decisions.

"So if you want to say our discipline is a problem then look over the course of the last few seasons since the gaffer has been back here and it's never been an issue. I don't see it being an issue now."
