McCoist optimistic on Miller move
Ranger boss Ally McCoist feels the fact Bill Miller has been as the named preferred bidder by administrators is a positive move.
Administrators opted for Miller's bid ahead of the Blue Knights consortium, led by former Ibrox director Paul Murray and backed by Rugby Union side Sale Sharks owner Brian Kennedy, on Thursday. McCoist understands the fans concerns, given the club's recent history regarding takeovers, but the Rangers boss insists it is a positive move. "It's definitely good news, because one of the processes that would have to occur in a positive manner is the preferred bidder status," said McCoist. "The fact that the administrators have appointed a preferred bidder in the shape of Bill Miller must be a positive move. "Of course, I can understand the vast majority of supporters being a little bit guarded and wary, not of the individual, but of the situation. "After what the club has been through in the last year or so, I can understand peoples' concerns. "But, at the same time, it's definitely a step in the right direction and we must give people a chance." McCoist is yet to meet the American businessman but he has had phone conversations with the potential new Rangers owner and hopes to meet with Miller face-to-face in the near future. He added: "I've spoken to Bill in the last couple of days and we both agree it's very important that we do get together. "I would imagine certainly in the near future that Bill and I will be meeting."
