The win, earned by goals from Nicky Law and Jon Daly, means Rangers remain unbeaten in the third tier this season.
And McCoist reckons that not only did Bell play a big part in maintaining that run, but the former Kilmarnock keeper is the best in Scotland.
McCoist said: "He made some brilliant saves, particularly the one first half was a brilliant save. He's doing well and it's another clean sheet and he should be very proud of that.
"That's as good a performance as you'll see from any keeper in the country. He's been top class. In history, Rangers goalies have always been called upon to make saves at crucial times when we've had large amounts of possession in the game."
United counterpart Mark Roberts felt his team switched off by allowing Law to score so soon after half-time.
Roberts said: "We had a game plan which was working great and created a few great chances. When we got in at half-time level then we were in a position where we needed to ensure we went back out and needed to concentrate and not do anything daft.
"But we made a silly mistake straight from taking the centre which allowed Rangers to go straight up the park and score.
"It's criminal to make a silly mistake like we did when you are playing against the best side in the league.
"Rangers have that quality and as soon as you concede against them their better players come to the fore."
