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."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
