Ally McCoist won’t be sacked as Rangers manager, despite their dismal away form taking another turn for the worse.
Stirling Albion made it four matches on the road without a win for the Gers, with Brian Allison’s goal inflicting the first defeat of the season on the Ibrox side.
Draws with Annan, Berwick and Peterhead preceded the defeat at Forthbank but the club’s chief executive, Charles Green, says he is fully behind the man at the helm.
“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 will be the first to accept that he picked the team. That it is his responsibility.
“But no matter the players picked, Rangers should still be able to put out a team to beat anyone at this level.”
In contrast, Rangers have made light work of their Third Division opponents at home, and even defeated then-SPL leaders Motherwell in the Scottish Communities League Cup.
Green added: “I find it incomprehensible that the same players can win so well against top of the SPL Motherwell and then play like we did at Stirling.
“We’re all frustrated, none more so than Ally — someone who knows exactly the privilege and pleasure it is to pull on a Rangers jersey and do it justice.
“Ally has absolutely my 100% backing.”
