 McCoist said after the talks with Green

Rangers manager Ally McCoist says he considered quitting over suggestions that the ailing Scottish club's new owners wanted to sack him.

McCoist said he was "furious" after hearing second-hand reports that English businessman Charles Green was planning to replace him.

The former Rangers striker decided to stay after a meeting with Green, who led a consortium to purchase the cash-strapped Glasgow giants on Thursday.

McCoist told the Daily Record on Saturday: "At first, when I was told there might have been a move to get me out my reaction was natural. I was furious.

"I did confront Charles Green about it on Wednesday. I was looking for answers and that meeting didn't end well.

"I was then left with no other option, but to contemplate my future believing that I wasn't part of the plans."

After the talks with Green, McCoist said: "I've reassessed my position and taken a step back from the brink. As things stand at the moment I am still manager."

Green is facing pressure to sell his club to another consortium led by former Rangers manager Walter Smith and McCoist stressed that the future of his club was all that mattered rather than his future and his relationship with Green did not matter.

"So let's just see what happens but it must always be the right thing for Rangers," he added.
