The Ibrox boss has arguably the second strongest squad of players in Scotland at his disposal this term and has stuck by the tried and trusted Gers as they have romped into a commanding position in League One.
It has meant little match action for the likes of David Templeton, Emilson Cribari and Sebastien Faure so far but McCoist is delighted with their commitment to the cause.
He said: "I have had a couple of conversations with these guys individually and collectively as part of the group.
"I remember a manager once saying that you are effectively only as good as the squad of players who are not playing. By that he meant they are an integral part of the success story.
"You can't play all of them, but there has to be an appreciation of a team winning games and me showing faith in the lads. We've been doing that and the boys aren't daft.
"They can see that in the league the results have been great and that makes it hard to get in unless there is an injury or suspension.
"In the cases of Templeton, Mackay and Aird, the team we have right now is set up with a narrow midfield. Templeton can play off the front man, but he's still more of a wide man.
"They are not playing down to the shape of the team we have right now. The two wider ones of a four are more central.
"That will change at some point, but the attitude and training levels of everyone has been fantastic.
"The likes of Cribari, Hutton, Aird, Faure have had a fantastic attitude to train and that has to continue."
After notching their 10th successive League One success with a 4-0 win over East Fife on Saturday, Rangers face Stenhousemuir this evening aiming to book their place in the Ramsdens Cup Final against Raith Rovers.
And McCoist is determined to avoid an upset and take his side one step closer to their second piece of silverware on their journey back to the top of Scottish football.
He said: "We want to win it, absolutely want to win it. The priority at the club has always been the championship, and that will always remain the case, but we've started very well in the championship in terms of points and performances so we're happy with that.
"The Ramsdens Cup gives the players the opportunity to get their first cup final, for the vast majority of them, so that's something not to be scoffed at.
"We genuinely want to get to the final, and it will be an opportunity to give the supporters a wee thank you and a great day out, if we can get there, and they deserve that more than anybody."
