McCoist buoyed by Doncaster comments

Published Add your comment

Manager Ally McCoist has taken encouragement from Scottish Premier League chief executive Neil Doncaster's comments indicating he would not be opposed to a newco Rangers joining the top-flight.

Doncaster believes there is little difference between a newco route from administration and a Company Voluntary Arrangement (CVA), with the current rules stating that the SPL board has the discretion over how to deal with the request for the transfer of a club's shares.

Asked for his thoughts on Doncaster's remarks, McCoist said: "I would have to be heartened and very encouraged. It's a really tricky and delicate situation because there will be teams who feel we should be punished if it's a newco and we stay in the SPL. I can totally understand that as well. We have to balance things up."
