Match Preview

McCoist aware of exodus consequences Ally McCoist has conceded the prospect of players walking away from Rangers under a `newco` scenario would be a "devastating blow" for the club. Administrators have named American businessman Bill Miller as preferred bidder to take over the Glasgow giants. His plan is to create an "incubator" company while Duff and Phelps bid to take the club out of administration through a Company Voluntary Arrangement (CVA). PFA Scotland chief executive Fraser Wishart warned last month that Rangers players may be able to leave for free if a new company is formed to take over the club's assets. But McCoist stressed that not all players would necessarily opt to quit Ibrox even if they had the choice. The Light Blues boss said: "It would be a devastating blow if it happened. "But we are all assuming, if there's a possibility that the players can leave, that they will do that. That might not be the case. "There are a lot of players here who love playing for the club and appreciate what the club is all about. Never under-estimate that. "There are a good few boys here who have grown up with the club and know what the club is all about. "It's maybe not just as straight-forward as a lot of people would think. Not all footballers just want to take a fast buck. "Footballers are intelligent enough to understand that they have to look after themselves and their families - of course they do. "But to suggest there is absolutely no loyalty at all among football players, I would say is totally wrong." Rangers host Motherwell in their final home game of what has been a turbulent season on Saturday, with a lack of a UEFA licence meaning third-placed Well will replace the Ibrox side in the Champions League qualifiers. McCoist said: "I'm delighted for Stuart McCall and the staff and the players. Motherwell are a great club and they are in the Champions League and it's wonderful. "Never mind the reasons and saying that our problems have helped them get there. That's obviously the case but, at the same time, they deserve to be there." Manager Stuart McCall fears Motherwell's 37-game winless run against Rangers is set to continue as the beleaguered Glasgow giants bid to end the campaign on a high at Ibrox. Motherwell have profited from administration-hit Rangers' predicament by claiming a place in the Champions League next term. Second-placed Rangers are ineligible due to their financial failings and Motherwell secured third ahead of Dundee United, who lost 5-0 at Ibrox on Wednesday. With uncertainty ongoing at Rangers, despite American businessman Bill Miller being named preferred bidder by administrators Duff and Phelps, it could be the final game at Ibrox for many of the squad and McCall anticipates his side may feel the full force. "Saturday will be a big game for Rangers," McCall said. "It will be a very difficult day. "It possibly could be the last home game for a lot of the players, the lads who have served them outstandingly well this season. "I think the support and the way the staff and the players have conducted themselves over a difficult time has been excellent." Rangers' defeat of United sealed third place for Well, but while his players were basking in the glory and yesterday reported for training with hangovers, McCall was left contemplating how Motherwell could claim victory over Rangers for the first time since December 2002. Former Rangers midfielder McCall said: "All the players were texting me while they were out celebrating. "I went home, had a cup of tea and tried to think how we'll stop the Rangers juggernaut. "We've had disappointing results there over a lot of years, but we need to do better than we have done certainly this season. "We'll hopefully put in a better performance than we have done of late." Motherwell have faced Rangers three times this season, twice losing 3-0 before a 2-1 defeat in March. McCall is keen to end the miserable run at the end of an otherwise stellar season. "We've played the Old Firm seven times this year and lost every one of them," McCall added. "It's not acceptable, but you look at the squads Celtic and Rangers have and every player's an international player. It can be understandable. "But for the boys to go 29 games and only lose four against the rest (of the SPL) I think is an incredible achievement by the squad. "It shows the consistency levels have been outstanding this season and I've been proud of everyone concerned. "I'd be very hard pushed to pick a player of the year. No one individual has been outstanding week-in, week-out, but there have been a lot of players with regular very good performances."
