Ally McCoist will continue as Rangers manager for the time being following his first meeting with the Rangers directors since he handed in his resignation.

McCoist held talks with directors in Glasgow on Wednesday afternoon but the club confirmed to Press Association Sport that he would continue preparing as normal for their Scottish Championship fixture against Livingston on Saturday.

The meeting came hours after Rangers confirmed they were fighting attempts by the Scottish Professional Football League to force them to pay a £250,000 fine for the oldco club's undisclosed payments to players.

Many had expected McCoist to leave following the club's confirmation of his resignation on Monday, but he is continuing to serve his 12-month notice period.

Rodgers looking forward to 'fantastic tie' as Liverpool draw Chelsea in League Cup semi finals

Liverpool go up against Chelsea in the pick of the Capital One Cup semi-finals.

The Reds won 3-1 at Bournemouth to reach the last four, while Chelsea put out a strong side to win by the same margin at Derby on Tuesday.

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho won his first trophy in England by beating Liverpool to the League Cup in 2005, and his side will be away in the first leg.

"It will be a fantastic tie," Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers told Sky Sports.

"If you want to win this competition you have to play against the good sides.

"The most important thing was getting through, but our performance was brilliant.

"We're into the semi-final, it's over two legs and it didn't matter who we got. We needed to get there, it's Chelsea and we look forward to it."

In the other semi final, Sheffield United take on Tottenham.

The ties are set to be played on January 20 and 21 and January 27 and 28.
