Glasgow Rangers: Ally McCoist vows to fight on


Rangers boss Ally McCoist insists he will not walk away from the club despite a shock 3-2 loss at part-time Alloa Athletic.

Against the odds, The Wasps stormed back from two goals down with just 17 minutes remaining to set up a Petrofac Training Cup final with Livingston.

McCoist hit out at his players' lack of profes­si­onalism but insists he will not give in to fans questioning his future.

Asked if he was considering resignation, he said: "No, I'm too concentrated on the game here."

He added: "My decision is to look at the performance tonight, particularly after we went 2-0 up, then sit down with the boys and go through it.

"It won't be a pleasant meeting but it has to be done and it will be done."

McCoist became Rangers' 13th manager when he replaced Walter Smith in 2011.

The 52-year-old former Gers striker led the club to the consecutive promotions to the second flight, but they are nine points off leaders Hearts this season.
