RYAN JACK insists Rangers won’t get carried away as they look to maintain their spot at the top of the Premiership standings.

Steven Gerrard’s side moved into pole position in the title race with victory over Hearts earlier this month but then dropped five points against Aberdeen and Dundee.

Now the Light Blues head to Easter Road this evening aiming for a huge win that would keep them ahead of Celtic and Kilmarnock.

Jack was part of the Aberdeen side that challenged Celtic during Ronny Deila’s Parkhead reign and the midfielder knows there is still plenty of work to be done this term.

He said: "We won't get too far ahead of ourselves . As soon as you go top of the league everyone wants to shoot you down, everyone wants to beat you that wee bit more and do that wee bit extra against you.

“Looking forward to these run of games it's important to take each game as it comes and wherever we are in the league we just need to focus on each individual game.

"I think it's totally different circumstances [than it was at Aberdeen]. It's a different club, a different team, but we have got a great group of lads in the changing room and a great mentality, good characters.

“And I am sure when we do maybe get that bit ahead of ourselves or look too far ahead then we have got characters in there who can keep the changing room together and make sure everything is going well if we do think we are better than what we are. But it's just one game at a time.

"I think there's still a long way to go, there's a lot of football to be played and a lot of points to be played for. It's good to be in this situation that we are doing well and doing things right, but we don't want to get carried away.

“It never went well the last time we were top of the league so we need to learn from that and we hope to deal with it."
