Graeme Souness fears for Ally McCoist's future

GRAEME Souness last night admitted he fears for Ally McCoist's future at Rangers because he believes he has little money to spend to reinforce his squad at Ibrox.

The former Rangers and Liverpool manager had his share of run-ins with McCoist when he was in charge at Ibrox. But he's desperate for his former striker to succeed in his new role.

However, Souness admits he's worried about the impact the former Scotland striker will make in his first full season in charge.

Souness, speaking on talkSPORT, said: "I think managing Rangers and Celtic are the hardest jobs in British football because of the expectation level.

"You can spend more on one player - certainly I did - than the team you are playing against cost all together and that pressure is enormous.

"Rangers and Celtic are so big compared to the other clubs in Scotland that both supporters think it should be a walkover every time they go out on the park. And it's not like that.

"I worry for Ally because it looks like they have got no money to spend and he's following Walter Smith. I worry for him, but I hope and pray that he does well.

"I think Walter would like to get back into football in England. Reading between the lines, I think he would like to have another go down here."
