RANGERS will immediately release Daniel Cousin if administrator Paul Clark announces that there will be redundancies at the club.
Manager Ally McCoist will meet Clark today and expects a full briefing on the cost-cutting measures being put in place and whether any of the club's 177 staff will lose their jobs.
Rangers have come under growing criticism for trying to complete a deal for Cousin. They have been labelled insensitive and accused of having their priorities wrong for trying to push through a £7500-a-week deal for the player while staff feared redundancies. But McCoist last night told Herald Sport that the Cousin deal was effectively done before the club went into administration, and the decision to continue with it was taken only after initial indications that job losses were not inevitable. Cousin also agreed to a wage cut, to around £5000-a-week, and he has accepted that it would be inappropriate for the deal to go ahead if Clark has decided there must be redundancies.
