Rangers fans blast McCoist for opinion on Director of Football role

Rangers legend Ally McCoist has offered a candid view on the debate surrounding a potential Director of Football role at Rangers, telling media outlets it’s “absolute nonsense” to suggest such a set-up is the way forward at Ibrox.

Rangers fans in the main have been open to such a set-up at the club, believing the Ibrox side badly need footballing expertise in the upper hierarchy of the club to help any potential first team coach with signings and footballing decisions.

Despite being one of the greatest players to grace the club, McCoist of course didn’t have the greatest of success at Ibrox as manager. Shepherding them through a critical time when they found themselves on the lowest rung of league football in Scotland, his reign at the club ended disastrously when Hearts romped to a Scottish Championship win at their expense in 2015.

Perhaps because of that, it appears his opinion on footballing matters at Rangers hasn’t gone down too well with supporters, many taking to Twitter to share their thoughts on his comments this afternoon…
