Walter Smith has denied Rangers will be forced to sell off some of their star players in January.
West Brom have recently been linked with a move for Kevin Thomson with Smith having a plethora of players at his disposal in the middle of the park.
But while Smith has admitted some players will be leaving coming the New Year, no one with a long-term future at the club will be departing Ibrox.
"We have got two months before the next transfer window opens," explained Smith.
"There is never any thought in my mind about losing the midfield players we have got here. We need them in the future with the amount of games increasing.
"The good players I have got, I want to keep here.
"With the size of my squad, some players will be leaving but it will not be the ones that are going to take us forward in the future."
Captain Barry Ferguson is nearing his first-team return following five months on the sidelines and Smith is relishing the prospect of having the influential midfielder back at his disposal.
"It will be a massive boost for the squad," Smith continued. "He's been training for a few weeks now and I'm sure when he is match-sharp it will benefit the squad further.
"His presence as the captain and being a leader on the park are probably his main assets.
"But when you look at his football ability, that has been missed as well. I'm sure he will be back up to speed in the next couple of weeks."
