St Johnstone v Rangers Preview
Rangers manager Ally McCoist
“I’ve have to say that the players we’re going for at the moment, I’d hope the lure of the club would still be greater than any obvious concerns they might have.”
“I can totally understand the concerns anybody coming to the club could have but thankfully at the moment the people we’re speaking to don’t seem overly concerned and I don’t mean that in a flippant way.
“There’s nobody who has mentioned the tax case in any discussions we’ve had with any players or agents and that’s the truth.”
St Johnstone manager Steve Lomas
“They’ve been fantastic. The honesty and work ethic of the boys can’t be faulted.
“As a manager, it’s great. I’m thoroughly enjoying it.
“We know it’s going to be difficult, but if the lads give a performance like we did at Ibrox, we’ll give Rangers a game.
“They know they’re going to have to come and play well to take the points.”
