McCoist hits out after Hearts loss

04 March 2012 07:17

Rangers manager Ally McCoist has hit out at those who he feels have been revelling in the club's turmoil after being forced into administration last month.

And he told anyone enjoying the plight of the Scottish champions to make the most of it while they can because he is convinced the Ibrox side will emerge from one of the most turbulent periods in their history.

McCoist said: "At this moment in time we are wounded - there is no doubt about it. There are probably one or two people out there enjoying it, maybe one or two people having a wee fly kick. I would suggest to them to give a right good kick just now because we will not be where we are for a long time."

McCoist is bracing himself for player redundancies which are expected to be announced early next week, meaning their 2-1 defeat to Hearts in the Clydesdale Bank Premier League is likely to be the last time this current crop of players will play together as a team before the administrator's axe falls.

Asked if he could elaborate on those comments, the Rangers boss said: "Not really. It will just go down avenues that I don't really want to go down, to be honest with you.

"Let's just say, while we are down there, we are having a look up and we are seeing what we are seeing."

On the club's future, he added: "I am absolutely 100% confident that our football club will continue. I'm not sure yet what way, shape or form it will continue but our football club will continue.

"Every supporter to a man will continue following us in whatever way, shape or form that we are."

McCoist also revealed he has now spoken to owner Craig Whyte, in a brief telephone call the manager instigated, just over week ago.

He said: "Whether Craig and I speak is not really going to solve any issues. The issues will have to be solved by the administrators and then we will take it from there."
