Ally McCoist tenders resignation at Rangers

Ally McCoistAlly McCoist has dramatically tendered his resignation as Rangers manager, just hours ahead of the club's match at Queen of the South. The Gers legend has come under fire in recent weeks following the club's shock Petrofac Training Cup semi-final exit at the hands of Alloa, while their league defeat to Hearts leaves them nine points adrift of their rivals in the Scottish Championship.

However, according to reports McCoist will still be in charge for the game in the Dumfries, although his future after the fixture is now in severe doubt. Heading into the game the 52-year-old has a record of 94 wins, 18 draws and just 13 defeats from his 125 matches at the helm, giving him an impressive win rate of 75%.

McCoist officially took charge of his beloved club in June 2011 after Walter Smith retired. In February 2012 Rangers went into administration and were handed an immediate 10 point penalty, however they still managed to finish second behind Celtic in the SPL. The following season the Ibrox outfit were reinstated in the Scottish Third Division, with McCoist boosting his popularity by committing his future to the club.

McCoist proceeded to lead Rangers to back-to-back promotions up to the Championship, although an indifferent start to life in the second-tier currently leaves them nine points behind table-toppers Hearts. Attention will now immediately turn to the Next Rangers Manager Market, with the likes of Stuart McCall, Terry Butcher, Billy Davies and Brian Luadrup featuring at this stage.
