Ally McCoist keen for talks over Rangers transfer targets

By Ronnie Esplin

Ally McCoist insists he does not plan on walking away from Rangers any time soon - and wants talks with new chief executive Derek Llambias on new signings.

The Ibrox boss has tendered his resignation but insists he will see out the full 12-month notice period stipulated by his contract.

The club's record scorer hopes to meet Llambias - whose new role was confirmed to the London Stock Exchange at 7.00am yesterday morning - to discuss strengthening his squad.

He said: "I'll have to have a discussion with Derek regarding what the plans will be for the future. I spoke to him today regarding his own position and him and I will certainly sit down and discuss adding to the squad, because that will be one of the topics that needs to be discussed."

When asked if he planned to see out the full 12-month notice period set down in his one-year rolling contract, McCoist, whose side face Livingston today, did say: "Yes. Absolutely.

"I don't know if it's realistic or not but I expect it to happen.

"I wouldn't say the ball is in anybody's court. I think it has been made quite clear by the board and myself that it is business as usual."
