Ally McCoist Excited By Newcastle Owner's Bid To Buy Rangers Stake
Published August 10, 2012
MCCOIST DEAL LOOMS: The DAILY RECORD reported that McCoist is on the verge of making "a long-term commitment to the Ibrox club." McCoist "has been in negotiations" with Green for weeks, but he is now "edging closer to signing a new extended contract" as he attempts to return Rangers back to the Scottish Premier League. McCoist said, “I am a firm believer that the most important relationship at a club is between manager and chief executive." Meanwhile, McCoist has "put his money where his mouth is" and revealed he has bought four season tickets for his family this season (DAILY RECORD, 8/9).
TAKING NOTICE IN U.S.: The N.Y. TIMES published a piece by Sam Borden about the state of football in Scotland under the header "Dissolving Scotland's Old Firm." In it, U.S. national team member and Rangers player Carlos Bocanegra said, "It means everything -- everything - to the city, and really the whole country. It's an institution. People live and die for the sport, they live and die for their team. Without Rangers being in the SPL, it's going to make a huge difference on the league, but also on Scottish culture" (N.Y. TIMES, 8/9).
