Former Rangers manager Ally McCoist has claimed that the financial situation at Ibrox is fine and speculation about the club going into administration is just a rumour.
The Scottish Sun had reported earlier this week that bookmakers had suspended betting on the Gers being relegated this season amid rumours of another administration.
Now McCoist, who was appearing on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast on TalkSport, also claimed that the rumours have been started by Celtic supporters.
“That’s the Celtic division. They’ve played to the gallery and you’ve just played right back. Everything’s fine at the moment” McCoist said on TalkSport, as quoted by the Daily Record.
He added: “At this moment in time, I don’t see any problems and hopefully that will be the case.
“A false alarm. And I think deep down, every supporter in the country would hope it’s a false alarm.”
McCoist has been working as a pundit since stepping down as manager of the Light Blues in December 2014, following a series of poor results as the Light Blues struggled to win promotion to the Scottish Premiership.
To matters on the pitch, the Gers returned to action on Thursday night in Florida with a 1-0 over Atletico Mineiro in the Florida Cup.
The only goal of the game was scored by Josh Windass, in a match which saw January transfer window signings Sean Goss and Jamie Murphy making their Rangers debuts and Andy Halliday and Michael O’Halloran making their return to the squad after being out on-loan in the first-half of the season.
Graeme Murty’s side next plays Corinthians in Florida on Saturday before returning to Scotland to begin the second-half of the season with a Scottish Cup tie away to non-league Fraserburgh on the 21st of January.
