Ally McCoist: Holds up a list which he claims has 100 names of people in Scottis

Ally McCoist: Holds up a list which he claims has 100 names of people in Scottis

Earlier this week, Rangers midfielder Ian Black was charged by the SFA for betting on 160 matches over a 7 year period.

And while the SFA bans players from betting on any match, McCoist believes not enough people - himself included - are aware of the exact rules.

McCoist said: "I just need to get a few things straight. I have a list of players and football officials in our country that quite enjoy putting a bet on, a couple of quid here or there on a team.

"I obviously will not and will never ever disclose the names there but the boys have come up with over 100 names on a list in ten minutes.

"They feel entitled, it's a bit of enjoyment and that's fine. What I'm asking for is everybody to get round a table, whether it's the SFA, the Players Union, Ladbrokes whoever.

"Let's all sit round a table and find out what is allowed, what isn't allowed and then we can start again. That's all I can say because the rest is in the hands of Ian's lawyers but that's where we are.

"To be honest, I'm not aware of the exact rules because I haven't studied them. If it's in the rules, it's in the rules - but not enough people know them and I include myself in that.

"Let's try and resolve the matter. Surely nobody here is naive enough to think this is a one-off situation."

think Liverpool should start trying alternative therapy now, given that Sturridge's hips and knees are apparently unfathomable to modern medicine. Voodoo, acupuncture, healing oils, rolling in the snow after a hot bath, its all got to be worth a go now.
