Just over 38,000 Rangers fans turned out on Tuesday night to watch Rangers’ first home game of the season as the Third Division side beat East Fife 4-0 in their first round League Cup clash.
There have been a sizeable crowd at Rangers over the past few days, with fans queuing up at the club’s ticket office to secure their season tickets.
McCoist told the official Rangers website: “Our season ticket sales are up to 25,000 now which is absolutely fantastic and I don’t have any doubt that number will rise again. Hopefully that will happen in the next few days and I just feel genuinely pleased about the positivity that’s surrounding the club at the moment.”
Only yesterday the Rangers Supporters Assembly gave their full backing to the manager’s call for fans to get behind the club. McCoist had called on all fans to unite and support the club by buying season ticket briefs and it looks as though the fans are steadily answering his call to arms.
Assembly President, Andy Kerr said: “The response from fans already this season has been extraordinary and the fans are central to the Club’s recovery and our support will take us forward and help propel us back to the top. There has already been a great response to season ticket renewals and many are waiting to become new season ticket holders for the current season.
“The fans have been magnificent for years now and even more so in this period of uncertainty and we urge them now to back the club by buying season tickets to assist the club to move onwards and upwards. The signs are positive and it is great that so many are fans are united behind the Ally and the team.
“This last six months have been pretty horrendous for all Rangers fans and it is helpful that we are now playing football again, focussing on the winning football matches and cheering the team on as we’ve always done. There are still off-field issues to be dealt with and they will take their course, but the fans can now look forward to a Rangers team competing for honours.”
