McCULLOCH IN PLEA TO NEW OWNER
Lee McCulloch has urged prospective new Rangers owner Charles Green to keep the current squad together after coming through one of the toughest season's in the club's history.
Administrators confirmed on Sunday morning they had accepted an offer from a consortium fronted by the former Sheffield United chief executive for the purchase of the club.
McCulloch revealed Green spoke to players briefly ahead of their final Clydesdale Bank Premier League game of the season at St Johnstone, which Rangers won 4-0.
He said: "Charles Green came into the dressing room for two minutes before the game and introduced himself but that was about it.
"He left and let the gaffer do his talk but he seems really positive.
"He didn't say much more about his plans, he literally came in for a minute and said we'll see what happens over the next couple of days and weeks.
"The big thing is hopefully keeping the squad together. That's most important. We don't want anyone to go.
"Some of the feelings we've had in the dressing room this season haven't been nice and coming through it has made us a lot stronger.
"Time will tell if we can keep the dressing room together but right now it's all about next season.
"If we can get through this then I think the club will definitely come back stronger."
Ally McCoist is hopeful he will remain under the new regime following what has been a turbulent debut season as boss.
McCulloch said: "The manager has been superb this season.
"Everyone forgets this has been his first season as his own man and I think even a manager with all the experience in the world would have struggled to deal with some of the things he's gone through.
"That's a credit to him, Kenny McDowall and Ian Durrant."
McCulloch grabbed an impressive opener against Saints before Sone Aluko claimed a hat-trick.
And he does not believe he has now played his last game for Rangers.
McCulloch said: "I can only speak for myself, and certainly returning for pre-season is all that's on my mind.
"I'll go and try and enjoy the summer and come back in and use the feelings and frustrations of this season to try and win a trophy next season."
