McCoist buoyed by Doncaster comments
Manager Ally McCoist has taken encouragement from Scottish Premier League chief executive Neil Doncaster's comments indicating he would not be opposed to a newco Rangers joining the top-flight.
Doncaster believes there is little difference between a newco route from administration and a Company Voluntary Arrangement (CVA), with the current rules stating that the SPL board has the discretion over how to deal with the request for the transfer of a club's shares.
McCoist has said that his understanding is that both bids on the table for Rangers - from Brian Kennedy/Blue Knights and American tycoon Bill Miller - are likely to involve a newco situation but does not believe such a scenario would mean liquidation.
However, a subsequent statement from Kennedy's group stressed that exiting administration via a CVA remains one of the main conditions of their offer.
Doncaster was speaking after the 12 SPL clubs agreed to delay a decision on proposed tough new sanctions for clubs which suffer insolvency events until next Monday.
Proposals had suggested increasing points deductions from 10 to 15 or a third of the previous season's tally, whichever is greater, for clubs who go into administration while newco clubs would lose 10 points for two seasons and 75% of their income for three years.
Asked for his thoughts on Doncaster's remarks, McCoist said: "I would have to be heartened and very encouraged.
"It's a really tricky and delicate situation because there will be teams who feel we should be punished if it's a newco and we stay in the SPL.
"I can totally understand that as well. We have to balance things up.
"Is it worthwhile us staying in the SPL and making us non-competitive or is it more beneficial to our football club going down to the Third Division and building again?
"That's a very tough decision and one that I couldn't give you an opinion on right now. But it's certainly something we will have to think about."
When asked if the overall health of Scottish football is more important than one club, McCoist made it clear that Rangers must remain his top priority.
He said: "I appreciate the delicacy of the situation but I'm interested in Rangers Football Club primarily.
"Scottish football is a far bigger issue and I totally understand the circumstances surrounding the whole thing and I appreciate how delicate the whole thing is.
"But at this moment in time, I have to look after and do what's right for Rangers Football Club."
Dundee United boss Peter Houston believes a positive start is key to his side securing another Ibrox victory.
The Tangerines are bidding to make it back-to-back wins away to the Glasgow giants following February's impressive 2-0 Scottish Cup fifth-round triumph over Ally McCoist's men.
Gavin Gunning's header saw United race into a 16th-minute lead that day before Johnny Russell silenced Ibrox further with a strike 10 minutes before half-time from which the hosts never recovered.
Now Houston is urging his players to try and strike early again if they're to come away with the points to keep the pressure on Motherwell in the race for third spot in the Scottish Premier League.
Houston said: "I think the key is always going in front when you go to a place like Ibrox.
"Before the last game at Ibrox I mentioned to the players that you have to take your chances when they come along.
"When we lost 3-1 at Ibrox in the league earlier in the season we had actually started really well but not taken our chances despite having a few.
"Then, at the other end, (Nikica) Jelavic goes up and scores with probably Rangers' first chance.
"I think again it will go down to the same scenario that if we can get a goal and get in front it would be great."
United are still chasing Motherwell for that coveted Champions League slot and Houston knows it will be far from easy winning in Govan despite Rangers' on-going off-field problems.
He said: "We're talking here about going to the home of the team that's second in the league with a good points tally.
"People can't forget that. We know it's going to be a tough fixture so we have to take what we can get out of the game.
"We don't fear it, though. We'll go and have a go as we usually do.
"It was a good performance the last time there in the cup tie.
"If we can get anywhere near the heights we hit that time I'd be more than delighted.
"But Rangers are always dangerous when they've come off the back of a poor defeat from Celtic so we know to expect a reaction."
