Ally McCoist: Rangers boss refusing to be drawn on Neil Murray suspension

Press reports claim the former midfielder, a team-mate of McCoist's, has been told to stay away while an investigation is carried out into last summer's transfer dealings.

However, speaking at his pre-match press conference ahead of Saturday's trip to Montrose, McCoist refused to go into more detail.

"Neil has been suspended by the club pending an investigation," he said. "It's a really sensitive matter and that's all I can say on it."

Murray's suspension follows the recent departures from the third division club of youth team coach Tommy Wilson and long-time physiotherapist Pip Yeates.

Asked if he was concerned over the staff changes, McCoist said: "My concern is that we have to be in position ready to go for the start of next season.

"Staff at football clubs, and in any work force, come and go. I fully appreciate that.

"That said, in terms of the recruitment of our players, the next two or three years will be the most important time in the club's history. We have to be ready for that... and we will."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
