Rangers defender Bilel Mohsni has told The Scottish Sun that the club should not have let go of Ally McCoist.
McCoist left the Scottish Championship outfit in December 2014 following a run of poor results.
The Gers were nine points behind Championship leaders (and eventual winners) Heart of Midlothian at the time.
The 52-year-old former Scotland international striker resigned from his position at Rangers and was placed on gardening leave, according to BBC Sport.
Mohsni has now claimed that Rangers should not have let go of McCoist, suggesting that he would have guided the Glasgow giants to promotion to the Scottish Premiership.
“Listen, I don’t want to slag off any manager but, for me, the big mistake was to sack McCoist in the middle of the season,” the 27-year-old told The Scottish Sun.
“A new manager cannot do anything in the middle of a season. He (Stuart McCall) isn’t allowed to bring players so what was the point? The club should have let McCoist finish the season and then see what was going to happen.
"After they sacked him no one knew what was happening at the club. It was like a mess so it is normal that we didn’t get promoted. Everything was a shambles.”
Mohsni himself looks set to leave Rangers this summer, as his current contract with Rangers runs out at the end of the month.
The Tunisia international defender joined the Gers on a two-year contract in the summer of 2013, as reported by BBC Sport.
The 27-year-old became the Glasgow giants’ eighth summer signing at the time and arrived as a free agent after leaving Southend United.
