Rangers manager Ally McCoist reveals that his job is safe, despite the increasing influence at the club of Newcastle United owner Mike Ashley.

Rangers manager Ally McCoist has insisted that his job at the club is safe.

Reports have suggested that the Gers boss could follow chief executive Graham Wallace out of Ibrox, following the acceptance of a £2m loan from Newcastle United owner Mike Ashley.

However, McCoist has stated that he has been given assurances by PLC chief David Somers and club director Sandy Easdale that he will not be replaced.

"Having spoken to both gentlemen, they have confirmed to me that they want me to continue my job as Rangers manager and, as you would expect, to concentrate my thoughts on the game tomorrow night," McCoist told the Northern Echo.

Rangers face St Johnstone in the quarter-finals of the Scottish League Cup this evening.
