Somers was unveiled on Thursday at Ibrox as a non-executive director until the club's AGM which has been confirmed for 19 December.

The Glasgow club have been operating with just two directors and without a chief executive since the resignation of Craig Mather in September.

McCoist had a brief meeting with the new man prior to the 2-0 victory over third-tier rivals Airdrie on Saturday, and has given his backing to Somers.

"I missed him on Thursday and we spoke on Friday night and arranged to have a brief meeting before the game," McCoist said.

"It was very encouraging for the 10-15 minutes. I asked him a few questions about what his hopes and plans would be, and he was obviously asking the same of myself.

"I would say it was a very pleasant meeting and I'd be very, very hopeful of having a successful working relationship.

"I was encouraged. He knows the current problems within the club, in effect of having two directors and not a chief executive. Obviously for corporate governance and running the football club, that's far from ideal.

"He appreciates that more than me - that's the job he's in obviously. As I say, he's aware of what the club needs and how he sees that moving forward.

"He's got a few appointments that he'll be making in the near future hopefully.

"We've got a bit of time off so I don't know what the chairman's move will be, but we'll certainly be in contact and in dialogue."

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.

alcao really needs to shine now. Apparently according to the stats, he scores more when played up front alone. I wonder if Van Gaal will actually apply a formation to get the best out of him though.
