We must be stronger - Houston

Manager Peter Houston has demanded stronger defensive performances after believing his side gave away sloppy goals against Rangers at the weekend.

Kenny Miller struck twice as the defending champions eventually ran out comfortable 4-0 winners at Ibrox.

"I felt the second half performance was very much self-inflicted," Houston told BBC Scotland. "Even at the second goal, you can bring it back if you get a goal back. In the last 25 minutes, we were disappointing. It's something we'll need to look at. We have players that could have punished them, but it didn't happen.

"I felt we were dominating the play in possession, but you can't gift goals to teams like Rangers because they punish you even further and it came back to haunt us," he continued. "It kills you. It knocks the stuffing and confidence out of you and Rangers got a huge lift out of it."

The Arabs are next in action at Ross County in the Co-operative Insurance Cup on Wednesday evening.
