Rangers are not Premier League material - they are very weak and light weight. Celtic will teach them a lesson they won't forget alas.

Jim Scott, Falkirk

They [Rangers] absolutely blew us apart [in the first half]. We made a couple of changes, the changes worked. We've got great character, we never know when we're beat. The substitutes had an impact tonight - that's what you want

Falkirk manager Peter Houston

This is how the Scottish Championship table stands after tonight's result.
