Rangers legend Ally McCoist has once again been earning the praise of football fans across the UK for his coverage of the Premier League.
McCoist, 59, is a hugely popular figure across the game and as such a remarkably positive ambassador for Rangers Football Club.
The Gers’ all-time top goalscorer (355) McCoist also had a spell as manager during a period of the club’s most tumultuous years.
Now back in the press and a leading pundit across multiple platforms, McCoist has been contracted once again to cover Amazon Prime’s Premier League matches.

Super Ally commentated on the Leeds late victory over Crystal Palace on Tuesday, the Merseyside derby on Wednesday and is set to complete the week by covering Man United and Arsenal on Thursday. Read more HERE.
Rangers fans are very familiar with the kind, funny, intelligent and jovial character that Ally McCoist is and fans from across the footballing spectrum have been paying tribute to him:

Ally McCoist should be commentating on Premier League games far more often. His passion and enthusiasm is unmatched pic.twitter.com/ccOj3qzUx1

Ally McCoist just loves football and it shines through in his commentary. He’s the best co-commentator in the game, I love listening to the bloke.

The song ‘It’s the most Wonderful Time of the Year’ was actually written about the several games in December that Jon Champion and Ally McCoist are on commentary.

Jurgen Klopp would enjoy the Merseyside Derby a lot more if he could listen to the Jon Champion and Ally McCoist commentary during it.

Ally McCoist is the best part about the games being on Amazon by quite some distance.

Makes you wonder why Sky persist with Martin Tyler's dreadful dirge when Jon Champion and Ally McCoist are absolute stardust.
Insightful and passionate commentary from people who genuinely love the game. So good you didn't want to turn them off even though you had the option.

Such a waste if Jon Champion and Ally McCoist only ever commentate on football together. Absolutely made to have their own round the world road trip docu-series

Ally McCoist is absolutely streets ahead of 99% of pundits #lufc

How Ally McCoist still doesn’t have a regular co-comms on BT or Sky Sports each weekend is beyond me, brings so much joy to the role & game.

It’s good to see Ally McCoist get recognised outside of Rangers for his passion for football and ability to raise a laugh and cut tension with banter.
A hero to the Ibrox support, Ally McCoist is never shy to talk up the Famous and he remains not only one of the club’s biggest living legends but also one Rangers’ biggest fans.
This was clearly evident during a recent TalkSPORT tour with Laura Woods.
Whilst Ally McCoist was watching Liverpool humble Everton 4-1 at Goodison Park his beloved Bears were doing the business in Edinburgh.
Rangers ran out 1-0 winners over Hibs and a former player of McCoist’s during his management days has been drawing the ire of Rangers supporters for comments surrounding a penalty award.
