Lee McCulloch has paid tribute to Rangers boss Ally McCoist for helping the club’s players through their off-field troubles this season.
Bill Miller was named preferred bidder to take over the administration-hit club this week with the threat of liquidation still a possibility.
After seeing the club given a 10-point penalty for entering administration, McCulloch admitted his boss has been "through a lot" over the past few months.
"I would say more than a lot," he told Sky Sports.
"It's been tough for him.
"It's been tough enough for him to be the manager but he's also been the 'chief executive' representing the club in all sorts of meetings.
"I don't know how he's found enough hours in the day."
After the team’s 0-0 draw with Motherwell, McCulloch also thanked the Rangers fans for their support over the season.
He added: "I think the club's been battered and bruised the last wee while and the fans have stuck behind us."
