Ally McCoist Discusses Michael Beale’s Rangers Future Amidst Recent Setbacks

In the wake of Rangers’ 1-0 loss to Celtic at Ibrox, speculation about the future of Gers boss Michael Beale has been circulating. The club’s disappointing exit from the Champions League and a defeat against their arch-rivals in quick succession have fueled rumors of his potential departure. However, former Rangers striker Ally McCoist believes that Beale’s position is not yet in jeopardy.

Speaking on talkSPORT on September 6th, McCoist shared his insights on the situation. Despite the recent setbacks, he expressed his belief that it’s not time for Rangers to change their direction, at least not just yet. He acknowledged, though, that the fans are currently feeling restless.

“No, not quite yet. But the natives were very restless at the end of the game,” McCoist remarked, referring to the anxious atmosphere among the Rangers faithful.

Reflecting on the match against Celtic, McCoist didn’t hold back in his assessment. He opined that Rangers had put up a subpar performance, stating, “As for the players, I thought Rangers were poor to be honest.” He acknowledged that there had been contentious moments, such as a disallowed goal, but he emphasized the overall mediocrity of the team’s performance, even against what he considered a “very, very average Celtic team.”

The ongoing debate surrounding Michael Beale’s position as Rangers manager continues to be a hot topic among fans and pundits alike. While Ally McCoist believes that a change in leadership is not warranted “yet,” the pressure remains palpable, and the outcome of future matches will undoubtedly play a significant role in determining Beale’s fate at the club. Rangers supporters will be watching closely as the team strives to regain its form and satisfy the restless faithful.
