Asked about concerns over changes to his backroom staff, McCoist said: “We have to be in position ready to go for the start of next season, that’s my concern.

“Staff at football clubs, and in any work force, come and go. I fully appreciate that.

“That said, in terms of the recruitment of our players, the next two or three years will be the most important time in the club’s history. So we have to be ready for that and we will be.”
