Ally McCoist has assured supporters not to worry about the possible exit of striker Kris Boyd.
Rangers accepted an offer from Birmingham for Boyd earlier this month, although he failed to agree personal terms with the Championship high-flyers.
Reports suggest the deal could be resurrected and Rangers have admitted they may have to sell one of their key men this month to balance the books.
Walter Smith's side are currently five points behind Celtic in the SPL title race and assistant boss McCoist can understand why fans might be concerned.
However, McCoist believes Rangers can claim top spot even if Boyd moves on, and has insisted he would walk away from Ibrox if he did not think that was the case.
He explained: "I totally understand the fans' views. They just see the fact we're in the middle of the title race and may be selling our top scorer.
"I appreciate that. All I can ask the supporters is to look at the facts - we have to sell.
"I know the fans aren't interested in balancing books. All they want is a good team and to win the league.
"I don't agree with anyone who says if Boyd goes we can't win the title or we can't win without him.
"I'd say that about whoever goes. Please do not look on this situation as a sign we're giving up on anything.
"If that was the case I may as well get my bag from my locker, throw away the key, jump in my car, drive off and never come back.
"No matter who leaves we'll be doing everything we can to make sure we're successful on the park."
McCoist believes Boyd has behaved in a professional manner since Rangers surprised him by accepting Birmingham's offer.
He added: "I don't think Kris is hurt in any way. In this day and age there has to be a realisation from everybody of what's happening.
"It's common knowledge we have to sell someone in January. It's nothing against Kris or anybody else. He is mature and knowledgeable enough to know there's no witch-hunt.
"The offer just happened to be for him. We accepted it but so far he hasn't and he's well within his rights."
