Evening Rangers Fans,

First of all, congratulations on the title win. As a Liverpool fan, I kind of understand the feeling of raw emotion of seeing your team win the league after a prolonged absence from the top (albeit you lot hit a much lower low before rising again) .

What I was wondering is how much of a legend is Ally McCoist at Rangers? Like where would he rank in the all time list?

I could just check his stats, but that won't tell the whole story. Growing up watching him on QoS and listening to his brilliant anecdotes on the Radio and TV, he's someone I've absolutely loved listening to. Even having him commentating on Liverpool when Amazon prime had the matches was a real breath of fresh air compared to the usual dull commentators down here in the PL.

Cheers guys.

Super Ally is right up there at the top with the best of them. The guy is a total legend who has gave his all for our great club on and off the park.

Paul, Davie was the most talented winger that I’ve seen play for rangers. What a left foot, not only accurate but powerful. My favourite player growing up 🔴⚪️🔵.

Ally McCoist won two European golden boots back to back one for his left foot one for his right foot .

Right now a Super Ally would be worth well over £40m and I do believe that .

Had the toughest working conditions then any manager in our history .

Absolute Rangers icon the reason you ask the question is because you think of Glasgow Rangers you the of Super Ally McCoist.

Ally mccoist always has been and always will be a glasgow rangers legend mate 👍 He's iconic in everyway and a big, big part of the glasgow rangers family then, now and forever more 👌🇬🇧 Absolutely adore the guy and the sacrifices he made for the club he loves and the club we all love 👍 You're correct smplfc, as well as coisty being a brilliant, record goalscorer of our great club, he's also a brilliant pundit/ football commentator 👌The guy knows his stuff and can talk!

24 Mar 2021 08:14:33
I echo everything that has been said already. The man is an absolute legend. As nice a guy you couldn't meet, and I've been on a couple of nights out with him and some of the rest of the first team, so can comment first hand.
A gentleman and as quick in his mind as his feet were on the pitch.

At the time of our implosion when Ally was manager I did have negative thoughts about him and the large salary he was being paid given the club's financial plight but with hindsight, when I look back at what he was having to cope with, it must have been a nightmare for him. I agree he is a Rangers legend on the pitch and he did start the difficult process of moving us back up the tiers towards the Premiership.

24 Mar 2021 09:30:16
Same here DOIGER mate,

I have to admit I was disgusted and angry wi Ally taking that huge salary in the bottom tier.

Like you I now realise he was well worth it and who knows what might have been without him at the helm.

Thank you Super Ally.

DOIGER, what also gets forgotten at times was ally mccoist agreed to take no wages from the club for around 6 months mate! The minority that slag super ally off, choose to conveniently forget mentioning this,
i wonder why 🤔.

24 Mar 2021 10:43:01
totally agree doiger. not many know he was also seeking advice on how to supply our admin office at that time. we had no staff.

24 Mar 2021 12:30:47
SGL he deferred his wages. He got everything when he walked away.

24 Mar 2021 12:48:01
True legend. 👍.

24 Mar 2021 12:58:46
Yes S G L mate, I have to admit I had forgotten the 6 months with no wages, certainly not conveniently though.

Thank you for reminding us of that and makes him even more of our hero.

As I say,

Thank you Super Ally.

He didn't walk away John25,he was placed originally on gardening leave and then sacked.

24 Mar 2021 14:37:48
McCoist is a Rangers legend he defines what legendary status means as a player for any team

As a manager he was not up to the job, which is a shame, and before anyone says but he was in a difficult position, which is true, that’s where we should have went for more youth with a few experienced players IMO

Anyway all said and done he bleeds blue and will always be welcome at ibrox.

The man voted the greatest ever Ranger, John Greig, was forced to resign after failing to deliver a league title ( though he did win 2 SC and 2 LC and He did sign Super Ally ) .
So it isn't disparaging to Super Ally's memory as a legend of a player to say that he flopped as a manager and signed some dross on inflated wages.

24 Mar 2021 15:15:58
Good point about McCoist delman. If Ally had blooded youth players to get them through back to the top it would have been interesting to see how things would have panned out. Instead, there were some dreadful signings such as Sandaza, Kyle, Black, Templeton, Peralta, Moshni, etc, etc. Not blaming Ally, he was clearly under severe pressure to get the Gers back up to the top but surely some of the youth players could have done better! Anyway, it is all history now and we are back where we belong. What a happy summer it is going to be!

24 Mar 2021 16:49:18
Legendary figure, it’s that simple imo.

24 Mar 2021 18:09:22
Mcoist is a pure ledgend no doubt . He stood by us magnificently during the dark times . The only thing that soured his rep was apart from the hi wages he took was that he opposed Charles green . That was until green gave him so many thousands of shares 250k worth in led to believe. Miraculously he changed his mind within hours and backed him 100% from then on in . Just before the season tickets went on sale.
I wonder if bomber brown would have done that? I doubt it
Super ally still a hero though.

24 Mar 2021 18:43:21
SGL he left himself because of the corruption, he said so last week in interview after 55

He is a legend but let’s stick to facts. He got paid later.
