Rangers manager Ally McCoist admits the club is at its lowest possible ebb, but holds out hope that it will emerge stronger from the crisis
Rangers went into administration on Tuesday, earning themselves an automatic 10-point deduction as a result to leav them 14 points adrift of Clydesdale Bank Premier League leaders Celtic.
In the face of the adversity, McCoist has urged the fans to retain their faith and continue supporting their club.
The home league clash with Kilmarnock on Saturday should provide the perfect barometer of the supporters’ mood and the players’ temperament in the face of looming staff redundancies.
“We are in a position at this moment in time where the club is maybe as low as it has been - possibly ever,” McCoist told Sky Sports News.
“We have to put our trust and our faith in getting the club to a better place and the future will hopefully provide that.
“There is no doubt about it, it’s a low time, the club is at a low ebb. Everybody sees that, it’s very, very apparent.
“So we all have to believe and have faith and hopefully we will all do that and the club will come out of this at the other end.
“Of that I have no doubt and it’s the most important thing.”
