Rangers manager Walter Smith says the decision the work without a contract was an easy one to make in the latter stages of his career.
And the veteran boss hailed his backroom team of Ally McCoist and Kenny McDowall as “brave” for arriving at the same decision.
Rangers confirmed at Monday's annual general meeting their management team would work without contracts when their current deals expire in January as the club continues its search for a buyer.
“It was a fairly easy decision to make for myself because of the stage I'm at in my career,” said Smith, who took the helm at Ibrox for a second time in January 2007.
“For Ally McCoist and Kenny McDowall, it's a brave decision on their part.
“After working for three years at a club and to say they think they have done a decent job, for them to find themselves in this situation is rather awkward, but they decided that would be the best thing for everyone and for the club.
“So we are quite happy to do that and we will continue for as long as people at the club want us.
“I would stress that. We have offered to do it, but it doesn't necessarily mean there will be an uptake from the club.”
Asked whether the announcement would mean more clarity and less uncertainty for the players, Smith added: “I think the players have known about it since the start of the season.”
Smith was speaking ahead of tonight's Champions League game against Sevilla — the Scottish champions' final outing in Europe this season.
Two points from their previous five games — both garnered on the road against Stuttgart and Unirea Urziceni — mean they head into the last group game without even a Europe League berth at stake.
Smith insists his players will be determined to end what has been a disappointing campaign on a high by earning their first win of the season in Europe's premier club competition.
“It's a matter of pride now. We haven't played well enough in the section to be involved in the final game and it's just a matter of us trying to salvage a little pride,” he said.
There is also the issue of cash for the club should Rangers claim three points against the group leaders in Spain.
Smith added: “It's obviously a factor for anyone in any occasion, but the main thing is that we try to acquit ourselves in a better manner than we have done, especially in the home game at Ibrox.”
Rangers played well for a large spell against the Spaniards in Glasgow before a second-half collapse saw them slump to a demoralising 4-1 defeat.
“For an hour of the game, we played very well,” said Smith.
“After Sevilla scored the first goal, we had to chase the game and that left us open and eventually we lost quite heavily.
“We would hope with the situation we are in just now we wouldn't be losing early goals and having to chase the game away from home. We would like to think we could keep the game tight and make sure the scoreline is different from the one we had at Ibrox.”
Rangers' cause will be aided by the absence of Sevilla star Luis Fabiano, who has been ruled out for three weeks with a foot injury sustained at the weekend.
Smith said: “Fabiano is a fantastic player, but Sevilla have forwards who are more than capable of winning the game without Fabiano.”
