McCoist still upbeat regarding Rangers plight

Rangers boss Ally McCoist is still positive regarding the ownership dilemma of the club.

The Ibrox outfit are still under administration and have yet to announce a preferred bidder to take majority shareholding from Craig Whyte.

It is believed that US businessman Bill Miller has emerged as the frontrunner with Paul Murray's Blue Knights - with Sale Sharks owner Brian Kennedy in tow - also still in the mix. There have been deadlines pushed back in order to get the best deal for Rangers with the decision taking a lot longer than was first envisaged but McCoist is refusing to throw in the towel with a resolution soon to be chosen.

"I'm appealed-out and deadlined-out, to be honest with you. But we can't give up hope. You've got to keep believing and have hope and faith that something is going to happen," McCoist said.

"Time is just not an ally. It's ticking and ticking and getting to the stage where there won't be any time left at all.

"But, having spoken to the administrators and two of the potential purchasers, I'm hopeful agreement can be reached.

"I spoke to Bill Miller on Friday. I had a conference call with him for an hour and a half.

"I spoke with Brian Kennedy on Friday as well.

"I'm remaining upbeat and they're both seriously interested."
