Rangers manager rallies fans

1:14 pm on 16 February 2012

Rangers manager Ally McCoist has called on the "best football fans in the world" to back the club during one of the bleakest periods in their 140 years after the Scottish champions went into administration.

McCoist - a lifelong Rangers fan who is also the club's record scorer - has told the fans he understands how they feel after the team was docked 10 points Wednesday by the Scottish Premier League, which effectively handed the title to their Glasgow rivals Celtic.

Rangers are in dispute with Britain's tax authorities and could face a bill of more than $90 million.

They have a home game this weekend against Kilmarnock.
