Steven Smith claims there should be no fears over a mass exodus from Rangers in January — because no-one is playing well enough to earn a move elsewhere.
The financial plight of the Scottish champions has been well publicised in recent weeks, with the loss of key personnel predicted in the next transfer window in a bid to help balance the books.
But Smith believes the players' only concern right now should be producing results on the pitch again.
The Ibrox left-back said: “The financial situation at the club has been highlighted but, as players, we can't think about that. When you're playing as poorly as we are, I don't think any of us will be good enough to move on if we don't start playing better football than what we're doing.”
And Smith has revealed how boss Walter Smith provided his players with a reminder of exactly what they are capable of as they attempt to retain their crown.
“We all got our league winners' medals this morning from last season and I think that's an indication of why people want to play for this club,” he said. “They want to win trophies and I'm no different from any of them. The manager handed out the medals this morning and I don't know if it was a reminder that we did win the league last year and that we worked hard to win it and all that good work goes to waste if we don't win it again.”
