Over the past few weeks the financial standing of the club, and his relationship with chief executive Graham Wallace, have been the main topics of conversation at his pre-match briefings.

This week, former Rangers director Dave King called on fans to put their season-ticket renewal money into trust and pay Rangers on a game-by-game basis - rather than a lump sum - in an attempt to starve the current board out.

But speaking ahead of his side's trip to East Fife on Saturday, the club's all-time leading scorer said: "I'm here to talk about football, and only football."

When advised fans would like to hear his views on the latest revelations at Ibrox, which included the club borrowing £1.5m of working capital, McCoist said: "The best way to put it is our team is sitting 20-odd points ahead at the top of the league.

"I think they are doing exceptionally well, had a fantastic result against Stranraer, a tough place to go, and I don't want any attention to be taken away from my players who we feel are doing very, very well.

"We are looking to focus on winning this league in the next few games and that is what we are solely looking at doing.

"The fans pay their money to come and watch their team winning. The players know that's their priority and to do it with some style."

Asked if he was fed up with the continued emphasis on the financial side, rather than the playing side, of the club McCoist added: "Football. That's what I'll talk to you about."

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

F365's Top Ten Defenders Of The Season

P

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
