Ally McCoist lifts lid on Ibrox 'madness' after Rangers reach European final

Ally McCoist has described his Ibrox celebrations as a “moment of madness” as Rangers made it through to the Europa League final. 

The pundit was seen with his back to the camera dancing away seemingly not bothered about his media duties after the Light Blues beat RB Leipzig 3-1 [3-2 on aggregate]. 

With the clip going viral, McCoist did his best to clear up the incident. Speaking on talkSPORT via Daily Record, he said: “Rangers [in the Europa League Final]?

“You’re making that up, seriously?

“I would say that is nearly impossible nowadays, with the financial disparity between top clubs. That would be just too big an achievement to happen.”

He added: “It’s time to go to a break, is it not?

“I would like to give everybody an explanation for that, which can only be described as a moment of madness,

“I honestly thought the cameras were on the pitch looking at the crowd, the players dancing about and you can hear the voices of the pundits in the background.

“Alas, it wasn’t the case, when Darrell asked me a question, I thought we were a couple of minutes into the question and I couldn’t be bothered answering it anymore, I’ll just have a dance.

“I wasn’t aware that the cameras were in fact on the pundits rather than the playing members on the field.


You can’t blame McCoist for sacking off punditry for a little while and having a good old celebration.

That is what the rest of the Rangers fans were doing and just like them, he could hardly hide his emotions as he showed some rather questionable dance moves. 

The 59-year-old is comedy gold and long may it continue – BT Sport better have him on their coverage of the final otherwise there will be riots. 

What an achievement from the Gers though – they have been excellent in Europe all season long and genuinely deserve to be in the final. 

They have ridden their luck at times but always found a way to make it to the next round which is the most important thing.

Eintracht Frankfurt is certainly going to be their toughest test yet, especially with it only being one leg and not having the crucial Ibrox factor to lean on but the final is anyone’s game. 

If the Bears maintain the excellent levels they have done in the Europa League all season, in the final, McCoist will be dancing like that again in Seville.

In other Rangers news, Sir Alex Ferguson has been stunned by “brilliant” Rangers this season whilst insisting they they have a “great chance” in the Europa League final.
