McCoist Rangers reign over

Ally McCoist's three-and-a-half year reign as Rangers boss has finally come to an end after the club confirmed he has been put on gardening leave.

It was announced last Monday that the 52-year-old had handed in his resignation but McCoist was adamant when he spoke to the press on Friday that he would see out the 12-month notice period of his contract.

But he lasted just two days more before his time in charge of the Glasgow giants was brought to an end.

New chief executive Derek Llambias' first task will now be to lead the search for the 14th man to have managed the club.
