‘Bitterness is ruining his legacy’ – Fans on Twitter not happy with Rangers legend’s manager view

The Rangers fans in the Transfer Tavern have been reacting to comments from their former player and manager, Ally McCoist.The 55-year-old claimed that even Pep Guardiola couldn’t bring success to Ibrox at the moment as he explained why Steven Gerrard would be walking into an impossible job in Glasgow. You can listen to McCoist’s comments in full on TalkSPORT.

As a manager, McCoist failed to live up to the standards he set in his playing days. The Gers icon was in charge of the club for three and a half years between 2011 and 2014, meaning he was in charge as the club was bombed into the fourth tier of Scottish football. McCoist took Rangers through the Third division before he left the club midway through their unbeaten season in 2013/14 where they won promotion from the Scottish League One and into the Scottish Championship.

Now a pundit, McCoist still has his say on the club that he scored 355 goals for in his 15 years as a Bluenose. Now though, Rangers aren’t the club that they once were in McCoist’s playing days as they sit a long way behind Celtic. The Bhoys in Green have greatly benefitted from Rangers’ fall from grace as they’ve scooped up trophies left, right and centre in absence of a major rival to contend with.
