Clydebank boss Kieran McAnespie admitted he’s never seen anything quite like it as his side beat EIGHT man Kilwinning Rangers 5-0 on Saturday.

Buffs had trio Bryan Boylan, Garry Fleming and David Syme all dismissed in the second-half as Bankies took full control to score five for the fourth time this season.

Nicky Little’s brace means his record now stands at 60 goals in 90 games for Clydebank, meanwhile Cammy McClair grabbed his tenth of the season as Del Hepburn also bagged a double.

McAnespie said: “I’ve never been involved in a game just as bonkers as that in my 20 years in football. It’s just a shame people will go away from the game talking about the referee and the three red cards.

“It’s a bit annoying that all our hard work and frightening attacking play at times won’t be remembered because a referee has basically lost control of the game. It seems mad to say after 10 cards in the game, but it wasn’t a dirty game at all. They were clearly frustrated and let that get the better of them, and thankfully we were professional enough to take advantage of that.”

The victory also means it’s the first time since October Bankies have recorded back-to-back clean sheets.

McAnespie continued: “Outwith that, I thought we played well and kept our shape well for the full game. We were disciplined both in terms of the shape but more importantly in not getting involved in any of the nonsense.

“It’s easy to get caught up in the moment, and obviously there were quite a few today, so to keep it professional was pleasing.

“It was a much harder pitch to play out from the back on, but we managed to do it and attacked with intent, pace and purpose. We’re so fast and so enjoyable to watch going forwards, but we were still vulnerable at half-time having not taken a few good chances.

“We’ve been guilty taking our foot off the gas but we were relentless and it paid off.”
