The Rangers manager Ally McCoist has said that it would be a disaster for the team if they only managed to win promotion without winning the title this season.

Ally McCoist is currently overseeing the prospect of Rangers slowly returning to the Scottish Premier league, but they know have to win the third division title before thinking about anything else. Rangers are undoubtedly the biggest team in this division, but they have not been able to translate this incredible superiority on the pitch. They are expected to run away with the title, but they have been unable to do it so far this campaign.

This has increased the pressure on the manager Ally McCoist, who has now said that just winning promotion is not enough for the club. They need to win the title if this season is to be called as a successful one. Rangers recently thrashed Alloa 7-0 in the Scottish cup. However, the club has suffered early exits from the other major cup competitions. McCoist is aware that winning the league title is a priority more than anything else. He has said that if Rangers win promotion to the play-offs, then it would be one of the worst seasons for the club.

“When I talk about promotion this season we have to win the league. We must. There would simply be no progress if we didn’t win the championship. Anything less wouldn’t be good enough – even via the play-offs. I’m confident we will win it and I will be very disappointed if we don’t. Nobody really knows what’s right or wrong and what to expect. That’s why opinions are more varied than ever,” said Ally McCoist after the thumping win. Rangers are currently top of the third division table, but have only a two-point advantage and with a game in hand.
