Ally McCoistManager Ally McCoist says morale is high at Rangers ahead of their first game in Division Three. Speaking ahead of the trip to Peterhead (17/2 to win the match), McCoist said he was "really excited" about their campaign.

The Rangers (4/15 to win the match) boss said "In the last week or so, I can feel a sort of feel-good factor coming back around the team, club, fans and everybody. Tuesday (the League Cup win against East Fife) was a fantastic night for everybody. The result, the performance from the players and the fans, was absolutely first class."

He also revealed he expected Alejandro Bedoya to join Celtic's Champions League opponents Helsingborgs. USA midfielder Bedoya has struggled to make an impact at Ibrox (1/33 to win Third Division) since his move from Swedish club Orebro last summer.

McCoist said he wanted to bolster his squad ahead of the transfer deadline, adding that a move for former Celtic (1/50 to win Scottish Premier League) and Hearts striker Craig Beattie appeared "dead". Responding to speculation linking Newcastle owner Mike Ashley with investing in Rangers, McCoist said he appeared to be an astute businessman.
