Ally McCoist: Hoping to climb through the divisions and lead Rangers forward again
Ally McCoist believes Rangers are ready to move forward and begin a new chapter, as the Light Blues begin life in the Third Division.
McCoist's side being their campaign at Peterhead on Saturday in what will be their first ever league game outside of the top flight of Scottish football.
The Glaswegian club have experienced one of the darkest periods in their 140-year history, after being consigned to liquidation and losing their place in the Scottish Premier League.
Charles Green's consortium purchased the business and assets of the club, and McCoist feels he and the rest of the Ibrox board are in a position to push Rangers forward again.
"It goes without saying that the club means everything to me, like it does for thousands of other people.
"My concern was the uncertainty of where we were going to be, who was going to take us forward, and what the plans were for the future.
"We are in a far, far better place today than we have been for a number of months." said McCoist.
He continued: "Thanks to Charles and the board, I've been involved in a lot of the meetings and they have kept me up to speed."
"I've been to a lot of meetings, quite frankly, that managers normally wouldn't go to.
"For that, I'm very thankful because I felt my experience within the club should have been represented and it was. I now feel we are in a position to move forward.
"I've had numerous meetings with the board, Charles and the chairman Malcolm Murray, and I'm really confident that we're singing from the same hymn sheet in terms of taking the club forward in the right direction."
