Rangers manager Ally McCoist insists he wholly supports and encourages the Scottish Football Association's announcement that they are to conduct a full independent inquiry into the activities of the club.

The football governing body have expressed concerns about the "developing situation" at the Scottish champions, who were forced to call in the administrators on Tuesday over an unpaid tax bill of £9million accrued since Craig Whyte's takeover in May.

Speaking to the media following Saturday's 1-0 defeat to Kilmarnock in the Clydesdale Bank Premier League, McCoist said "Personally, as manager of the club, I would encourage it because the amount of clarity that comes out of the whole issue is vital to everybody - supporters, you guys, employees, everybody."
