Keeper Scott Gallacher and defender Andrew Mitchell will both return to the Rangers squad in the coming days after their contracts with Airdrieonians and Annan respectively come to an end.
After impressing in the final few games of last season for McCoist's side, the Northern Irishman has made the most of his time out on loan, appearing 15 times for the Galabankies during his spell in Scotland's fourth tier.
And the right-back hopes he has done enough to catch the eye as he bids to make an impact at Ibrox in the remainder of the campaign, as he enters the final months of his Light Blues contract.
"Him (McCoist) and Kenny McDowall are always asking me how I'm getting on down there and I think they've been getting reports on me," Mitchell told rangers.co.uk.
"I showed I could do well at this football club though and hopefully being at Annan has made me a better player."
While Mitchell has enjoyed a productive few weeks away from Ibrox, it has been a frustrating time between the sticks for Gallacher as the Diamonds have struggled in League One.
And, with Gers first choice keeper Cammy Bell in fine form and Steve Simonsen providing experienced back-up, the young shot-stopper could find himself back out on loan once again.
