Macleod likes to operate as a deep-lying central midfielder and excelled in that pivotal role after breaking into the Light Blues first team last season.
The then 18-year-old was named Rangers Young Player of the Year even though he was out for over three months with a serious knee injury.
However, the arrival of Nicky Law at Ibrox during the summer has resulted in him being shifted from his usual berth by manager Ally McCoist.
Law has been paired alongside Ian Black in an attacking 4-2-3-1 formation in the last few weeks.
Macleod, meanwhile, has been fielded in a more advanced position on the left flank and played just outside Robbie Crawford last week.
Yet, the move has not hampered the Scotland Under-21 player's progress. Quite the opposite is true, in fact.
He has scored in his last two appearances for Rangers in comfortable SPFL League One victories over Stranraer and Airdrieonians away from home.
And the Wishaw lad has stressed he is more than happy to continue playing there if it means he gets a regular game for the Glasgow giants.
"To be honest, I am not too bothered where I play at Rangers," said Macleod as he prepared for the Ramsdens Cup match against Berwick Rangers at Ibrox tomorrow night.
"I know that I am still just a young player and still have a great deal to learn about the game.
"I just want to be involved in the first team and, at the moment I am, so I am happy.
"I have been played on the left of midfield in the last few games, but I have not really been played out wide as such. I am not exactly a winger.
"My preference is obviously to play in central midfield. But with Ian and Nicky playing so well there nobody can argue with their selection."
He added: "Nicky has done really well since arriving at the club. I am sure that training with him and playing in games with him will help bring me on as a player.
"He is a quality midfielder. It is beneficial for the young lads like myself at the club to have an experienced professional like him to look up to and learn from. It can only be good for us.
"I didn't know a great deal about Nicky before he arrived at Rangers in the summer other than he had been at Motherwell.
"But he is clearly a great player and I am enjoying playing in the same team as him."
Law, who scored a wonder goal in the second half of the sensational 6-0 triumph over Airdrie at the Excelsior Stadium last Friday night, is unable to play against Berwick.
Bizarre rules mean trialists are not allowed to be used at this stage - even though they featured in the previous round against Albion Rovers at Almondvale last month.
McCoist's team suffered an ignominious exit to Queen of the South in this competition last season after the quarter-final tie at Ibrox went to extra time and penalties.
Macleod was involved in that painful loss to Allan Johnston's men - who then went on to beat Partick Thistle in the final - and is hopeful there is no repeat tomorrow evening.
He is optimistic that, despite the League Cup defeat to Forfar Athletic away earlier this month, Rangers will manage to avoid the sort of humiliating defeats they slumped to last season.
He stated: "We have got an awful lot of good players at the club this season and I think we are capable of not only winning games but also putting on a good show for the supporters.
"I think we have shown in spells in our games recently, both at home and away, that we are more than capable of playing some good football.
"We had hoped to go through the entire season without suffering the sort of disappointments of last season. Sadly, that was not to be and we lost to Forfar in the League Cup.
"But I think you are always going to get setbacks in this game. It is how you respond to them that is important. I think we have bounced back from that result in a pretty positive manner with three straight victories.
"We have done well away from home as well which is pleasing given some of the results that we have suffered on our travels. Hopefully we can keep that run going for some time.
"The new players will not be able to play in this match, but I think that hopefully we should be good enough to successfully negotiate the game and progress.
"We want to do well in every competition we play in. We are Rangers players and we have to perform to our best every time that we take to the field no matter who the opposition or what the competition."
