Ally McCoist is confident Rangers will survive "a dark day" in the club's 140-year history and emerge from administration in a stronger position.
The Scottish champions were forced into administration on Tuesday over an unpaid tax bill of Â£9million - accrued since Craig Whyte's takeover in May.
McCoist has moved to assure worried fans that everybody at the club will now pull together, and told www.rangers.co.uk: "That's the aim. That's the thing we want to assure the fans and the players and the workforce of. We will be doing everything to make sure Rangers comes out the other side far better and far stronger."
He added: "There's no getting away from it. It has been a very disappointing and black day.
"We have 140 years of fantastic history at this football club but the most important thing is that we look to the future and the next 140 years.
"Going into administration obviously wasn't ideal but it's the opinion of many people that it might be the best thing for this football club.
"Everybody at this club wants the club to continue, which it will do that's for sure, and this might just be the best way forward.
"So we have to adjust to what's happened, react to it and take the club forward and we aim to do that."
