STEVEN GERRARD insists he won’t get carried away with the Premiership standings after Rangers moved 11-points clear of Celtic in the title race with victory over Aberdeen.

The Gers continued their fine form this term as they eased to a 4-0 win at Ibrox and capitalised on Celtic’s draw with Hibernian on Saturday.

Goals from Ryan Kent, Kemar Roofe, Scott Arfield and James Tavernier could have been added to as Gerrard’s side produced another accomplished performance.

But there is no chance of Gerrard and his players getting ahead of themselves at present as they look to maintain the momentum that has put them in a promising Premiership position.

Gerrard said: “Aberdeen have been on a fantastic run. They have been excellent defensively, very hard to score against.

“So I’ve got to pay my boys credit. I know they’ve had some issues before the game but the focus is always on us. We had to go and do the job.

“We were playing against good defenders, a really organised team. Derek doesn’t get the credit he deserves at times for how well he sets his team up.

“Having said that, I’ve got to pay my players a lot of credit because they found the answers and they could have found even more.

“I look at the league table every time we play. I’m not going to deny that.

“But I’ve never known a manager to get carried away in November. I don’t know how many games we’ve played, but there is a lot of football to be played, a lot of challenges, a lot of big hurdles to get over.

“But I won’t deny I’m happy. I’d much rather be where we are of course. But stay humble. We can rest the league for a couple of weeks.

“We’ve got some big European games and a big game in the league cup against Falkirk to look forward to. We move on to the next challenge.”
