The Light Blues legend has been concerned by the club's poor showings on the road this season and is hoping to see an improvement against Stirling Albion this Saturday.
The Gers have failed to beat Peterhead, Berwick Rangers as well as Annan Athletic on their travels in the Irn-Bru Third Division – and only just overcame Forres Mechanics in the William Hill Scottish Cup at the weekend.
Ally McCoist was missing first-team players Ian Black, Andy Little, Francisco Sandaza, Dean Shiels and David Templeton in Moray and was, once again, forced to field a side full of kids.
And Durrant feels this young team needs to show more battling qualities if they are to win their away games during this landmark campaign.
He is expecting another difficult encounter at Forthbank this weekend against a Stirling team on a high wafter their 5-0 thrashing of Dalbeattie Star in the Scottish Cup on Saturday.
And he has urged the likes of Fraser Aird, Kyle Hutton, Robbie Crawford, Barrie McKay, Lewis Macleod, Kal Naismith and Ross Perry to come of age – by matching their rivals' physicality.
Durrant said: "We have stated for some time that we have to improve away from home. It has not been good enough in terms of our approach to games.
"It is going to be hard this weekend. They will come at us, as every team does. But we have just got to roll our sleeves up and battle away until we get in front and when we get in front we have to stamp our authority on the game.
"Maybe it is a culture shock of going to smaller grounds like Annan, Berwick and Forres, but these teams are going to be right up for it now.
"Everybody thought 'It will be easy for Rangers in the Third Division'. Well, we haven't had an easy game yet.
"We have had to work our socks off in every game to get a result. It will be no different this weekend."
HE ADDED: "Clubs fancy their chances against us at their grounds and will come out and give their all. We have to make sure our game plan is right and, most importantly, we go out and battle.
"Maybe we haven't battled enough. Maybe we have tried to play too much football instead of calling on our fighting qualities and trying to win the game the other way.
"But we are looking forward to getting back to league action this week after cup games. It is a great month of matches for us and hopefully we can get a few wins."
Durrant, though, feels the injuries sustained during the 2012/13 season have prevented the team from playing the way manager McCoist wants them to.
In particular, he believes the loss of Templeton, the former Hearts winger who signed for Gers on the final day of the transfer window on August 31, has been extremely costly.
The 23-year-old enjoyed a dream debut against Elgin City just two days later when he scored two goals in front of a full house at Ibrox in an emphatic 5-1 triumph before later being ruled out two weeks later with ankle ligament damage.
Rangers are unable to sign reinforcements due to a 12-month transfer embargo and Durrant reckons the absence of two wide men has not helped the cause.
He said: "We have always had good wingers, players who can take opponents on and beat them, in my time at Rangers and we certainly do now in David Templeton and Barrie McKay.
"The fans want to see that. I am sure that, when he recovers from his injury, David will become a big favourite with the Rangers fans."
Durrant is convinced the youngsters Rangers are destined for long and successful careers.
He said: "The three boys who have signed deals recently, Barrie, Lewis and Robbie, are all exceptional football players.
"I am sure they would have been on the cusp of the first team this season if we were playing in the SPL. They have got their chance."
