Rangers Steven Gerrard’s men were impressive on Sunday leading to an emphatic away victory over Hearts and subsequent lead on the table but the manager says he is not carried away by the position.

Steven Gerrard told Daily Mail:

“It means nothing to me – and I’m not lying.”

“It’s fantastic for the fans as it’s been too long. They can enjoy tonight but we have another big game in 72 hours (against Aberdeen at Ibrox) and that’s my focus.”

“I said before the game it would be nice to be top, but I won’t think about that.”

“All I will think about is what knocks we have, who is available for Wednesday and what am I going to do without Scott. I go straight to work for that game.”

“I am not interested in the league (position). You get nothing for it now. We have worked hard to get there, but it’s a challenge for us to see how long we can stay there.”

“People have games in hand and will breathe down our neck, but it’s a different responsibility. The players know that and we have to handle that.”

“There’s no point getting carried away because we’re in early December and you get nothing for it right now.”

“It was a very important result. It’s our first big win against a rival away from home and we’ll take confidence and belief from this result.”
