Rangers chief executive Charles Green has handed manager Ally McCoist his full backing following the shock defeat by Stirling.
Rangers suffered their first defeat in the Irn-Bru Third Division with a 1-0 reverse at Forthbank on Saturday in their fourth away game without victory.
McCoist also oversaw a Ramsdens Cup defeat by Queen of the South but Green is looking to bring stability to Ibrox and sees his manager as a crucial factor in his plans.
Green told the Scottish Sun: "There is no chance of Ally being sacked. Yes, Saturday's defeat was an embarrassment. But no one more than Ally knows what happened at Stirling was unacceptable.
"We've got to get a lot of things sorted at the club and we've never said it was going to be easy.
"We are certainly not going to solve anything by dismissing the manager.
"Remember, the manager wasn't on the field on Saturday, was he?"
Green added: "Ally has absolutely my 100 per cent backing.
"I'm currently down south on business and I spoke to him after the game and we've arranged to meet in London on Thursday.
"We've got a fortnight now until our next game and that gives us all time to take stock, reflect and plan ahead."
