Walter Smith to resign as Rangers chairman

Published Add your comment

Latest reports from Scotland are suggesting that Rangers chairman Walter Smith has stepped down from his post at the club, after a mere three months of being appointed to the role.

The 65-year-old was appointed Rangers chairman in May this year, but after a shock twist of events this weekend, he looks set to step down within the next couple of hours.

Smith has made it clear that he will walk from his post if manager Ally McCoist is forced out of the club this week due to recent results, and off-field problems.

Reports also suggest that McCoist was very unhappy at the appointment of newly-appointed Charles Green, who was a former chief executive at the Ibrox.

Green suggested that Ally McCoist's position as manager may not be safe even if he delivers the league title this season.

It has become all to clear that McCoist and Green will not be able to work together within the club due to his recent appointment, this leaves McCoist with a tough decision as to whether he should quit as manager of Rangers to help them move forward as a club?

McCoist has had no time to fully focus of the footballing side at Rangers since accepting the position as manager back in 2011.

Rangers lost their Scottish League Cup first round match against Forfar 2-1 on Saturday which saw them knocked out of the cup within the first stage.

What is your opinion of Smith's decision to step down as chairman?
