Smith: First leg was costly

Rangers manager Walter Smith had few complaints after seeing his side's UEFA Cup run ended by in the last 16 by a 2-1 aggregate defeat by Osasuna. Pierre Webo's goal 19 minutes from time sent the Spaniards through to the quarter-finals, with Smith rueing a 1-1 draw at Ibrox in the first leg. Smith said: "We are obviously disappointed. After a poor first-leg performance, we hoped to do better here. "We did better in some aspects, but we didn't really create enough opportunities. We only had a few chances. "It was a game where there weren't many clear-cut opportunities for either side, although Osasuna will feel they had the better of those that were created. "We are disappointed with the way we played in the first le, and if you play that way, you always have an uphill task in the second leg."
