RANGERS MANAGER Ally McCoist has been given a vote of confidence by the Glasgow club’s chief executive Charles Green following their humiliating defeat against Scottish minnows Stirling.

Fallen giants Rangers suffered their first defeat in the Third Division on Saturday as Stirling enjoyed a sensational 1-0 win at Forthbank to leave McCoist’s men without a victory in their four away league games this season.

Rangers, forced to play in the Third Division after going into liquidation during the close-season, were also beaten by tiny Queen of the South in the Ramsdens Cup last month.

But Green is looking to bring stability to Ibrox and sees McCoist, a legendary former Rangers striker, as a crucial factor in his plans.

“There is no chance of Ally being sacked,” Green told the Scottish Sun. ”Yes, Saturday’s defeat was an embarrassment. But no one more than Ally knows what happened at Stirling was unacceptable.

“We’ve got to get a lot of things sorted at the club and we’ve never said it was going to be easy. We are certainly not going to solve anything by dismissing the manager. Remember, the manager wasn’t on the field on Saturday, was he?”

“Ally has absolutely my 100% backing. We’ve got a fortnight now until our next game and that gives us all time to take stock, reflect and plan ahead.”
