When he spoke to the media afterwards, he made it quite clear that his job would be under pressure if that level of performance was repeated.
He is a Rangers man through and through and he is well aware of exactly what is expected of the manager.
Nobody needs to tell him losing 2-1 at Ibrox to a team of part-time players falls way below the standards required.
But the moment he feels he is unable to take the team forward nobody will have to tell him he has to go. He will leave himself.
I think he deserves more time in the role given everything that has gone on at the club in the last year.
Rangers fans pay good money to see their team play and they are entitled to see something decent on the park. But some people have short memories.
Ally had to throw together a team in a matter of weeks last year with those players who were available at that time. He was frustrated in his efforts to bring in his main targets.
So I think he should have the chance to be able to strengthen his squad. He has been working tirelessly to secure free agents who can come in on September 1.
It will be difficult for him. But better players will surely come in.
If things are not working next season then he will not need to be told to go.
Sentiment should not play any part in a manager keeping a job. John Greig was loved by Rangers fans. But he only lasted two and a half years in the job.
But Ally is well aware that he will be judged on his team's play and success.
Yes, the football his Gers side has played this season has not been pretty. But Ally is doing what he set out to do which is to win the title.
Despite the loss at the weekend, his team is 17 points clear at the top of the Irn-Bru Third Division and are certainties to lift the trophy.
It is clear to me that, as a result of the lead they have and the fact they will achieve their ultimate objective, several players have downed tools.
Some fans say Ally should be motivating his players. But motivation from players comes from within. Once they cross that white line on match day it is down to them to perform.
I know Coisty held his players back at the weekend and gave them a roasting. And rightly so. The Annan defeat was one of the worst results in the club's entire history.
Ally knows that. I just hope the players know it now too.
They need to do the business and get a resounding victory in a tricky away game against Elgin City tomorrow.
Season tickets will be up for renewal soon. If there are any more results like the one against Annan then the disgruntlement among the fans will grow and Rangers chief executive Charles Green may grow panicky.
