Rangers Manager Ally McCoist Says Team Should Be Promoted To Second Tier

Scottish Third Division Rangers Manager Ally McCoist "called for Rangers to be fast-tracked into Scottish football’s second tier," according to Colin Duncan of the Scotland DAILY RECORD. The Ibrox manager "is against proposals to introduce a 12-12-18 setup next season" which, if voted through, would mean the Ibrox side will not be promoted regardless of whether they are crowned Division Three champions. Rangers "have always insisted they did not want to be fast-tracked into the top flight, but McCoist feels there is a precedent for the bottom league winners going up when a new structure is introduced" (DAILY RECORD, 1/17).
