The Ibrox newco will begin life in the lower echelons of the game on Saturday week with an opening fixture against Brechin City at Glebe Park in the Ramsdens Cup – assuming the club is granted SFA membership.
It is life at the sharp end for Ally McCoist's side, many of whom have always played at the top level and have been insulated from the harsher elements of the game.
Airdie played the new-look Gers side in a bounce game at Murray Park on Tuesday evening – the luxuries of top-of-the-range pre-season bases around the globe have been swiftly knocked on the head –and Boyle saw enough to be sufficiently impressed.
The Diamonds are one of the teams who have benefited directly from Rangers' fall from grace given that they have now been elevated into the First Division – something that wasn't lost on McCoist and Kenny McDowall the other night.
And although many of the Ibrox players have shipped out – Salim Kerkar is the latest – Boyle has maintained that even the kids coming through the ranks will be good enough to get them out of their current predicament.
It will be a long slog, but Boyle does not expect to see any unexpected hiccups on the park this season. He said: "As they currently are, I suspect they would still be too strong for anyone in the First Division, so I can't see them struggling in the Third Division. They beat us 2-1 the other night and they were relatively comfortable.
"We had a few trialists and they were quite strong – they had Lee McCulloch and Neil Alexander, as well as the likes of Kirk Broadfoot and Lee Wallace.
"But even some of the youngsters that they brought in looked good. They were technically impressive and I just can't see that they'll have too many issues getting out of the Third Division this season."
Some of the players who featured on Tuesday will still be expected to move on from Rangers.
McCulloch has tied his colours to the mast and insisted that he will tough it out with the club through what will undoubtedly be some dark days ahead, but the likes of Broadfoot, Alejandro Bedoya, Alexander and Maurice Edu could all move to other clubs rather than toil in the lower leagues. If that is the case and the current transfer embargo remains in place, it will be time for the Murray Park kids to step into the full glare of the first-team spotlight.
Last term the likes of Rhys McCabe and Jamie Ness impressed when they were thrown in – so much so that they had no problem moving on to other things this summer.
The inexperience could prove to be a bind for McCoist's side, but Boyle says the Ibrox manager, as well as sidekick McDowall, were in good spirits this week.
"They are in a bit of a situation, no doubt about that," said Boyle. "They obviously know how hard the next few years are going to be, but I would have to say that they were both really positive.
"We had a bit of a blether about what lies ahead for both of us, but I didn't want to press too much on anything because I'm sure they are sick to death talking about it.
"Ally has been under immense pressure over the last five or six months and I'm sure he'll be relieved in a way to get back to focusing on the football. I honestly don't think that they will have any issues on the pitch.
"They still look very strong, they've got great facilities at Murray Park and the youngsters that they have got coming through have had the best of training and support for the last few years.
"The likes of McCulloch will always give them an exper-ienced head and be supportive of any kids going into the team.
"A lot of the lower clubs have had to do the same thing because budgets have been cut so dramatically across the board – and even before this kicked off.
"There will be plenty of clubs having to go with youngsters this season.
"Rangers still look capable of being a match for anyone that they'll come up against at the level they're going in at.
"Even if they have to stick with what they've got, they should be fine.
"It will be a culture shock for some of these guys, but in terms of ability, they certainly have enough."
