Ally McCoist: Rangers boss is looking to add to his squad in January

At the Ibrox club's inaugural Annual General Meeting in December, Rangers chief executive Graham Wallace warned shareholders that severe cutbacks were required to avoid the prospect of serious financial problems.

"We are in the process of looking at our footballing capability," Wallace said after the AGM. "Looking at the cost base of the playing squad, it is way too high for what we have got in the current division."

McCoist will meet Wallace on Monday to discuss the board's plans.

But the 51-year-old, who won his first trophy as manager last season, admits recruitment is difficult for the third-tier club because they have no chief scout.

"Until I'm told otherwise that's not a concern. I'm looking at our squad just now and I'm the same as any other manager - I'd be looking to add bits and pieces," McCoist said.

"I haven't had the conversation yet with the chief executive so until that happens, there's no use worrying about something that might not happen - and hopefully won't.

"We have players lined up. We wouldn't be doing our job otherwise. If we get the green light to go, then we have possible targets.

"But it's been extremely difficult because it's a specialised job for a chief scout."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
