Ahmad claims for 'unpaid bonuses,' Ferguson on Le Guen relationship - Rangers morning news

Ally McCoist also gives injury updates and views ahead of tomorrow's game against Stenhousemuir

A court of session has been brought before Rangers by former Commercial Director Imran Ahmad. His claim is for £500,000 in alleged unpaid bonuses, according to a statement on the Rangers website.

Former captain Barry Ferguson has lifted the lid on his relationship with former manager Paul Le Guen, in a column for the Daily Record.

Ferguson said that it felt as if it was becoming acceptable for Rangers to drop points every week under Le Guen’s reign.

He said: ‘The worst bit of it was, I could see it rubbing off on others until there were players sitting in that dressing room who didn’t seem to care if we won, lost or drew. The standards I had grown up with were disappearing.

‘I was just so angered by the lack of passion. I couldn’t look round any more at people who didn’t care if Rangers won or lost.’

Rangers boss Ally McCoist believes the shocks in the cup competitions are a good indicator as to how hard it is for the Gers to climb the lower leagues.

He said: ‘Effectively we’re playing in a cup tie every week and sometimes you get shocks in cup ties. This week proved it.

‘Morton, who are second bottom of the Championship, had a fantastic result at Celtic Park, while Stranraer scored three goals at Hibernian.’

McCoist has told the Rangers website that Nicky Clark is a doubt for tomorrow’s game against Stenhousemuir, after a clash with a Partick player in match played behind closed doors.

McCoist said: ‘It doesn’t look like the type of thing that will keep him out for too long but as for the weekend, we’ll need to have a chat with the physios about that one.”
