Ally McCoist: Aware of the need to freshen things up

The Gers were crowned Scottish Third Division champions on Saturday, with the first step back to the SPL having being taken with the minimum of fuss.

McCoist is, however, aware of the need to freshen things up for 2013/14, with another promotion push expected.

Rangers continue to work under the restrictions of a transfer embargo, but the Ibrox faithful should brace themselves for a number of comings and goings.

When asked how many signings he was hoping to make, McCoist told the Sunday Mail: "It will certainly be double figures.

"And I'm not talking about replacements, I'm talking about enhancing the squad. When I'm scouring around the youth team to find a player for the bench you know you have problems.

"Bringing players here will be difficult in terms of the embargo, but if we aim to win another title next year we need to bring in better players - a lot of them.

"I said last summer we needed four or five players coming in. We lost Carlos Bocanegra and got David Templeton in. Since then we've lost Kevin Kyle, Fran Sandaza, Dean Shiels and Lewis MacLeoad for various things. I've already started conversations with Charles Green about it.

"He's not daft - he's at the games and sees for himself where the problems are."

e was right to leave, but not just because of the money City were coming into. If I remember rightly he had a reasonable amount of chances to shine at City, but he never passed the bloody ball. Loads of aimless dribbles and 40 yard shots and not much else. I would say that if he had learnt to be a bit more of a team player he may have done better at City.
