McCoist prepared to leave Rangers if not wanted by new owners

Ally McCoist would be willing to walk away from Rangers if a potential new owner did not want him as manager. The Ibrox number two is set to replace Walter Smith at the helm in 12 months time when the veteran boss retires after both men signed new contracts last month.

And he would be prepared to walk away from his dream job if it was in the best interests of the Scottish champions.

He told the Scottish News of the World: "The reality is the club has been up for sale. It has been taken off the market now but that doesn't mean to say a year down the line someone couldn't come in with another bid.

"While there's a chance of somebody coming in, buying the club and investing in it, I have to be realistic.

"If they do that they may want to bring their own person in. That's something I would have to accept because it's likely to be in the best interests of the club.

"I don't want to sound like a martyr but the club comes first in the event of someone coming in with cash."
