Again, Rangers fans need to know that someone out there will go above and beyond for them. Nottingham Forest fans may be the only supporters in football outside of Rangers rivals who speak ill of Rangers legend Ally McCoist. Frustrated Nottingham Forest fans targeted Rangers legend Ally McCoist on Twitter and social media after the former Rangers striker called the club “Notts Forest” in an embarrassing move for City Ground fans.
McCoist singled out the Rangers trio of Ryan Kent, Borna Barisic and James Tavernier for criticism after the old company derby disbanded. The starting lineup is astounding. In 2012, Rangers legend Allie McCoist attempted to climb the Scottish football ladder from the third tier with Rangers. Alistair Murdoch McCoist worked with Charles Green when the club was included in the Scottish third tier. When Walter Smith took over from Souness in April 1991 and Alistair Murdoch McCoist recovered from a hernia on the season’s final day, the Rangers won the title.
Someone who would consistently take them if chances were created, and Rangers manager John Greig was right, as McCoist – after a slightly rough start to life at Ibrox – enjoyed 15 years of massive success with Rangers as they largely dominated the championship, the Scottish game is undoubtedly the decade between the late 1980s and 1990s. Ally McCoist also had great success under the great Walter Smith in the 1990s as the club won a string of titles. Prolific striker Alistair Murdoch McCoist is currently the fifth all-time top scorer in Scottish Football League history, with 260 goals for Rangers and Kilmarnock between 1983 and 2001.
Ally McCoist eventually took over executive power himself in 2011. However, the financial irregularities that saw Glasgow Rangers punished by Scotland’s relegation to the fourth tier would have made it difficult for McCoist. After two promotions at the club (up to and including the Scottish Championships), Ally McCoist’s affairs went a little bit wrong, and he eventually left Rangers and returned to his TV and radio roles in 2015.
While Celtic’s goofy boss Alan Brazil and Ally McCoist remembered the Mile High game, the Ibrox Rangers legend embarrassingly switched names. In terms of Super Ally’s money, the Rangers were worse than his favourite English team as Giovanni van Bronckhorst lost points for the first time in his reign. As a manager, Alistair Murdoch McCoist’s first game at the Old Firm was a 4-2 win over Celtic at Ibrox, but the Rangers were shocked by First Division a few days later side Falkirk in the Cup League.
