Does Ally McCoist need to strengthen this summer?

Rangers will be favourites to win the SPFL Championship if they go into it with the squad they have at the moment.

But it will still be far tougher for them than it has been this season. They will be playing against full-time teams.

I think Ally has to go out and bring in fresh faces to guarantee that his side wins their third successive promotion.

Bringing in a couple of players with Championship or Premiership experience will be important.
