Maurice Edu is confident the loss of Kenny Miller will not prove catastrophic to Rangers' season.
The SPL's top scorer looks set to depart Ibrox in the near future, either during the January transfer window or when his contract expires in the summer.
Italian giants Fiorentina have emerged as the frontrunners to take Miller during the current window, but face competition from Birmingham for the prolific striker's signature.
With it becoming increasingly likely that Rangers will soon be shorn of their most potent attacking weapon, fears have been raised as to the club's firepower heading forward.
Edu is unfazed by the imminent departure, though, as Walter Smith's side have proved in the recent past that they are capable of coping with such a loss.
"People were questioning what would happen to the team last season when guys like Kris Boyd left after scoring so many goals for us," said the United States international.
"This is a similar situation, when the team has to come together and be able to put together complete performances.
"Kenny has been a big player for us. He has scored a lot of goals for us so far and he has been our go-to guy in terms of scoring goals.
"Like any situation, whether a player leaves or gets injured, whatever the case may be, it's an opportunity for another player to step in and try to fill that void and step up to the plate and show what he's worth to the team.
"I don't know what the situation is right now but if Kenny does leave, it's an opportunity for another guy to come in."
He added: "I think we have the personnel where there are guys who can step in and score goals.
"Kenny would obviously be a big, big loss for us because he has scored quite a few goals for us already this season and he has been our target man.
"But it's just the case of another guy stepping in and wanting to play in that position and putting himself in the position to score goals so that he can be the front-man for us."
