Ally McCoist offers to resign as Rangers manager

By Claire Cromie

Ally McCoist has offered his resignation as Rangers manager, the Daily Record is reporting.

Just last week he said he still had the confidence of the Rangers board - despite reports suggesting Sandy Easdale wanted him axed.

The news comes hours ahead of the club's match with Queen of the South.

McCoist has faced mounting pressure since his side suffered a woeful defeat to part-time Alloa in Wednesday's Petrofac Training Cup semi-final.

Attendances at Ibrox have been in freefall because of a season-ticket boycott, sparked by fans' anger with the board.

Chairman Easdale and his brother James, a PLC director, were last week leading calls for McCoist to be replaced.

But the cost of ripping up the manager's contract would cost the club £1.4million - a sum well beyond the cash-strapped Light Blues' means.
