Smith's future must now be in doubt
The former Rangers boss said: "As a manager you have to remain optimistic. We dropped into the bottom three in my first season then won four in a row to get out. But apart from that, I have no comment to make on my situation."

"The truth is we have not scored enough goals and have lacked a bit of quality in the final third of the field. (In today's game) we could have led comfortably but that has been the case in a number of games. We have to look for the answers ourselves."
