The 34-year-old has already pledged he will continue to play for his boyhood club despite the uncertainty over which division they will be entering and now he wants to assist on the training ground.
The former Wigan man has been working towards obtaining a UEFA 'A' licence over the summer and wants to continue working off the field, as well as on it, as the new campaign approaches.
"I really enjoyed it doing my badges," he told rangers.co.uk
"Everyone thinks you just turn up...and get your licence but that's not the case - you need to pass it."
Ex-Rangers defender David Weir worked under reserve team manager Tommy Wilson before he left for Everton and McCulloch is hoping to benefit from a similar experience with a coach he respects.
"There's a lot of hard work to do this season but I've been on the phone to Davie (David Weir) already getting wee tips from him.
"If I can help out with any of the younger sides at Rangers it would be great as well because I need to do that. I'm used to being out there on the park but now I need to start taking teams myself. Playing is my priority first and foremost at the moment but in my spare time I want to coach.
"I don't want to speak out of turn without speaking to (manager) Ally McCoist or Tommy but I'd love to do what Davie did last year. That would be brilliant because Tommy is one of my favourite coaches I've ever come across in football. He's fantastic and I'd love to learn from him."
