McCoist has no immediate plans, though, to head off on his travels again any time soon as he bids to ensure the Glasgow institution survives beyond this troubled season.
Since Bill Miller first emerged as a potential, and highly unlikely, owner of the Gers, a journey to his base in the United States has been mooted for the manager.
But the club legend has revealed he is no nearer to meeting face-to-face with the man who may be the saviour of his beloved club and who he has been in regular contact with via telephone.
"I will speak to the administrators today to see if there is any update on that," said McCoist of the possibility of him jetting out to Florida for talks with the enigmatic American businessman. "But there are no immediate plans to go over at this moment in time. I'm not aware of any plans for him to come over either to be honest. I haven't spoken to him in a couple of days."
In the wake of the announcement yesterday that the SPL will wait until May 30 to make a decision on changes to their financial regulations, it would appear Rangers fans will just need to bide their time that bit longer.
Having been in purgatory pretty much since Craig Whyte plunged the club into administration back in February, there looks set to be no resolution to any aspect of the whole sorry saga any time soon.
Quite rightly, McCoist spent the Sunday and Monday focusing on a friendly meeting with Linfield at Windsor Park that was generously organised by the host club to generate much-needed funds for Rangers.
A 2-0 win was duly secured by the visitors on a foul day of weather thanks to second-half goals from Alejandro Bedoya and young debutant Barrie McKay.
It was only after the final whistle had sounded, that McCoist turned his attentions to a ruling that, as was the case with the vast majority of Scottish football fans, left him surprised.
"I was only told after the game the decision has been put back," he revealed.
"If the Rangers administrators asked for a decision to be put back you would have to think it would be in the best interests of the club and that can only be a good thing."
Another good thing, as far as McCoist was concerned, was the further strengthening of the bond with Linfield with the staging of a game that may have raised up to £100,000 for Rangers.
He said: "As a club, we have a great relationship with Linfield. We have got a lot of good friends over in Northern Ireland and friends look after one another in times of need. It was a delight to go back there.
"It has been well documented that we are having a tough time at the moment with the state of the finances and the fact we are in administration. It was a good gesture for everyone at Linfield for inviting us over and helping us.
"There were around 7,000 fans at the game which, considering the weather, was a good turnout. The match was played in the good friendly spirit the game called for. Hopefully, it won't be too long until we are back."
McCoist took advantage of the friendly fixture against the Ulster double winners to hand 19-year-old defender Chris Hegarty his first-team debut in the centre of a three-man defence.
With the rain lashing down, it was not an easy match for the Murray Park youth graduate to take his bow in. He handled the occasion with some aplomb, however, and ensured his team kept a clean sheet.
He was joined on the pitch by fellow youngsters Robbie Crawford, Rhys McCabe, McKay and Andrew Mitchell in the second half in what was an invaluable exercise for Rangers. McKay, who curled a sublime shot past Stuart Addis and into the home team's net as the game drew to a close, drew the most attention as a result of his goalscoring heroics.
In truth, none of his contemporaries looked overawed. "It was a good opportunity for us to give a few of the young boys who are pushing for involvement in the first team a game," said McCoist. "It was a good day for everyone involved with the club."
Given that Rangers may, if the appeal against the 12-month transfer embargo imposed by the SFA fails, have to play a team comprising mainly of their young players next season it was an encouraging 90 minutes.
Linfield may, despite securing their sixth league and cup double in seven years, be a part-time club who operate at a level a fair bit below that their illustrious opponents are used to.
But, in these difficult times, Rangers must clutch at whatever positives come their way and the meeting with Linfield, while ultimately meaningless, was most certainly one of them.
RANGERS: Alexander; Perry, Hegarty, Broadfoot; Whittaker, Bedoya (Crawford 77), Edu (McKay 66), McCulloch (McCabe 77), Wallace; Aluko (Mitchell 66), Healy (Little 66).
