Yet having spent the vast majority of both his playing and coaching career at Ibrox, he appreciates it is totally unacceptable.
Nothing less than outright victory in every domestic fixture, no matter who the opposition or what the venue, will satisfy the majority.
If the current run of form on the road continues, irrespective of league position, there will be repercussions, possibly serious, for those involved.
McCoist alluded to as much as he looked back on his team's latest disappointment against Annan Athletic at Galabank on Saturday.
The players who arrived at Rangers in the summer must realise the display produced and the result recorded both fall some way short of what is required.
Should it continue much longer then the first-team places of those involved, and possibly their very futures at the Govan club, will be jeopardised.
"The pressure at this club to win matches is massive," stressed McCoist.
"It does not matter who or where you are playing.
"If you are going to play for Rangers then that is a pressure you are going to have to live with. Otherwise, you don't play for them."
Allowances must, of course, be made given the extraordinary circumstances Rangers find themselves in.
McCoist has been forced, as a result of events off the field, to construct a completely new team in a matter of weeks.
As he pointed out last week, this time last year Rangers took on Celtic in the first Old Firm game of the season at Ibrox.
None of the players in their starting XI that day remains at the Glasgow club. Nevertheless, some of those who have been hastily brought in to replace them will, transfer ban or no transfer ban, not last long unless they improve dramatically.
As was also the case in Peterhead and Berwick, the application of his charges once again frustrated the Rangers manager down in Dumfries and Galloway.
Against part-time players giving their absolute all on their big day in the spotlight, anything less than 100% was not going to be enough to secure three points.
"We are having problems starting games and matching the all-round enthusiasm of the opposition and the pace they are playing at," McCoist conceded.
"We were marginally better in the second half. Having said that, we were far from very good.
"I am not sure what the problem is. It is a concern we haven't won a league game away from home. It is not a disaster, we aren't pressing any panic buttons, but it is something we'll to look at."
The loss of David Templeton, who appeared to catch his studs in the artificial turf early on, undoubtedly did nothing to help the Rangers cause.
Medical staff at the club training complex in Milngavie will discover the full extent of the winger's ankle injury this week.
However, McCoist fears the worst for a player who has only been at the Ibrox club for a matter of days.
"The doctor isn't hopeful," he admitted. Templeton had been a revelation on his debut against Elgin City a fortnight before; the 23-year-old had scored two goals in a 5-1 win.
Without him involved, the visitors' play in the final third was highly predictable and completely ineffective.
McCoist said: "The problem we had, which wasn't helped by losing Templeton, was that we didn't have any real width and we didn't create.
"We struggled to get Barrie McKay into a wider area to get Lee Wallace down the left hand side. For all the possession we had, we should have created a lot more."
If, as looks likely, Templeton is ruled out long-term, it is difficult to see who in an already threadbare squad will supply the ammunition.
Nothing, though, should be taken away from Harry Cairney's team. They fought valiantly for 90 minutes and could easily have snatched a historic victory if they had showed more composure on their forays up front.
McCoist argued: "The League Cup results so far this season would indicate these are tough places to come to.
"Only one of the teams to pull off upsets in the cup was from the first division. There were two from the second and one from the third.
"I am disappointed with the level of performance and with certain aspects of the game, but you have to show the opposition the utmost respect."
McCoist is hopeful his team will bounce back with victory over Queen of the South in the Ramsdens Cup tomorrow night at Ibrox.
But it's the next away fixture, against Highland League minnows Forres Mechanics in the William Hill Scottish Cup on Saturday week, that is now of the utmost importance.
