Rangers manager Ally McCoist has revealed he has held talks with American bidder Bill Miller for the first time.

Miller is one of three bidders vying for control of the stricken Glasgow giants, with administrators Duff and Phelps hoping to name a preferred bidder this coming week. And McCoist is ready to book a flight to the United States to meet Miller in person if he is identified as the man administrators believe should take control of the club.

Speaking after the Gers' 3-1 win over St Mirren in the Clydesdale Bank Premier League, McCoist said: "I spoke to Bill Miller last night in a conference call for the best part of an hour, which was very encouraging."
