Ally McCoist: Understands the Rangers fans

The club's board held a meeting to discuss revelations involving chief executive Green, commercial director Imran Ahmad and Craig Whyte, who owned Rangers before the club was liquidated.

Supporters chanted "Charlie, Charlie give us the truth" as the Third Division winners beat Clyde 2-0.

Asked whether the fans have changed their views on Green, the Rangers manager said: "I don't sense that they are turning away from anything or anybody.

"But I do sense, quite rightly, that they are getting a little bit frustrated that the whole thing isn't out in the open, that the truth isn't there for everybody to see - especially the Rangers supporters.

"They deserve the truth. They deserve to know what's been happening behind the scenes at their club.

"I do detect a greater frustration from within them and I do understand it and, I take it a step further, I agree with it."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
