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.
