Rangers in turmoil following Walter Smith departure

Ally McCoistAlly McCoist's future at his beloved Rangers is in doubt following the sudden departure of club chairman Walter Smith. Smith chose to stand down on Monday due to what he described as a "highly-dysfunctional environment" at the club under former chief executive Charles Green who has returned as a consultant. His shock resignation has inevitably set alarm bells ringing around Ibrox, leaving Gers manager McCoist extremely exposed.

Last season the controversial Green branded the current Gers squad as "the worst Rangers team ever" and earlier this August he piled the pressure on McCoist by publically claiming that the Scot is expected to win both the league and cup in 2013/14. Rangers suffered a shock first round League Cup defeat to Forfar Athletic over the weekend, with McCoist furiously blasting Green for his comments.

Rumours are rife that McCoist could not be set to follow in the footsteps of Smith and leave the club. Former QPR boss Neil Warnock has been installed as the 5/2 favourite (Sky Bet) in the Next Rangers Manager Market. The experienced boss has been out-of-work since leaving Leeds at the tail end of last season after failing to lead them into the play-offs, although he could now be set for a sensational return. Meanwhile Billy Reid can be found at 6/1 in the betting, while Kenny Shiels and Terry Butcher have both been handed odds of 8/1.
