Ally McCoist "prostituting himself around" in desperate bid for Rangers tickets

Ally McCoist has admitted he has been "prostituting himself around" in a desperate bid to get tickets for Rangers' Europa League final.

The Scottish giants travel to Spain to face Eintracht Frankfurt on May 18 at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium in Seville in the club's first European final since 2008. However, Rangers have been given a ticket allocation of just 9,500 for the match, despite the ground having a capacity of 42,714.

This has caused outrage and a desperate scramble for tickets by supporters, with former player and manager McCoist also going to desperate measures to try to secure a ticket.

Speaking to talkSPORT, via the Daily Record, McCoist explained: "I was actually emailing people at UEFA I’d never met before. I was prostituting myself around Europe and UEFA. Anything they wanted off me – I'd cook them breakfast, I'd do their ironing.

"I've not heard back from anybody at UEFA. You think I'm joking, I've tried everybody. I've never known anything like it and I'm actually quite angry about it, but I'm not going to get angry at nine minutes past six.

"How can UEFA possibly have a European final with only 40,000 people there and give just over 9,000 tickets to the fans of both clubs?

"Before I start slaughtering them, the rest are the people I'm trying to get tickets off! That's why I'm going easy on them at this moment in time.

"But if I don't get any, wait until you hear me the following morning. Just over 9000 tickets and they reckon (Rangers) will be taking at least 80,000."

The 59-year-old was then given the chance to deliver a 20-second message to listeners, during which he pleaded: "Any listeners out there in the 6am club – and the 6am listeners are without doubt my favourite club on the planet, always have been, always will be – if there's any tickets out there for Seville, I'm your man.

"I will make you breakfast, I will do your ironing, I will do your washing up, I will tidy your house, all of the above. That's how bad it is."

McCoist was Walter Smith's assistant for Rangers' last European final and was seen celebrating live on air following the semi-final win over RB Leipzig last week.

Prior to that he won 10 league titles during 15 years as a player at Ibrox and also spent three years as manager himself between 2011 and 2014.
