Gregg Wylde is adamant Rangers will not be getting carried away by their flying start to the defence of their SPL title.
Rangers sit nine points clear of second-placed Motherwell after Saturday's 1-0 home success over Hibernian made it nine wins from 10 league games this season.
Old Firm rivals Celtic, meanwhile, sit 10 points adrift of the reigning champions after suffering a 2-0 defeat at Hearts on Sunday.
Ally McCoist's side now head into the international break in an enviable position at the top of the SPL, but Wylde was keen to sound a note of caution with plenty of football still to be played, including another three meetings between the Glasgow giants.
He said: "It's good but we can't get carried away at this moment in time. There are still Old Firm games to be played."
Kyle Lafferty's goal midway through the second half saw off Hibs and Wylde believes securing the points is all that matters after enduring a similarly frustrating encounter against Kilmarnock before going on to claim a 2-0 win.
The winger said: "This game was just like the first half against Kilmarnock. It was very difficult but we are just delighted to get all three points.
"We had a chat at half-time. We knew the goal would come if we kept playing the way we were playing and we were pleased that it came at the right time and that we finished with the points."
The 20-year-old has managed to hold down a regular place in McCoist's plans so far this season and says he feels more settled in the first team.
He said: "At first I was a bit nervous but now I'm in the first team regularly and I'm enjoying it now.
"I had a couple of chances myself in the game but I'm just delighted that I set up the goal that got the three points for the team."
