'Ally has never been a manager' - Rangers chief Green on McCoist

Rangers chief executive Charles Green has stated that he never felt Ally McCoist was a manager.

The former 'Gers striker has been in charge at Ibrox since taking the reins from the great Walter Smith in June 2011 and has guided the club to top spot in Scotland's Third Division this season, 23 points clear of second place.

Despite the fact Rangers are set to win the title and move up to the Second Division, McCoist has not been overly happy with his performance with Green concurring on some aspects of the Glasgow giants' season.

"Ally isn't happy with where we are," he said.

"We are all happy that in three more matches we're likely to have won the league and that's fine.

"But in terms of the performances and how we're winning, I don't think anyone is happy.

"But the answer is not to fire Ally. It's to deal with the issues and try to improve.

"Ally has never been a manager.

"If I was judging him as a striker or his ability to score goals, we'd have a real benchmark.

"But he came to this having never managed a club and was thrown into one of the biggest clubs in the world.

"That is a challenge but to do it to that backdrop increases the enormity of the task."
