Maurice Edu has offered Rangers encouragement regarding discussions on his potential contract extension.
The Ibrox club's manager, Ally McCoist, this week revealed he had spoken to the USA international's agent about a new deal.
Edu has 18 months remaining on his current contract and is flattered the club are keen to keep him so far in advance.
The 25-year-old told Blues News: "It's always good news to hear that the club is pleased with the way you've been playing and the progress you've made.
"I have worked with the management team and staff here for four years now. It's good to have positive feedback and know that you're wanted."
But Edu is more concerned with what is happening on the park than getting involved with the discussions.
"I just focus on playing," he said. "I know I have 18 months left.
"I have been pleased with the way things have been going. I'm just focused on getting wins in a bid to make it four in a row."
The Ibrox club's attempts to retain their Scottish Premier League title stuttered in November when they dropped points against St Johnstone and Kilmarnock and saw their 12-point lead over Celtic cut to four.
But they are looking for their third win in succession when Inverness visit Ibrox on Saturday and Edu is satisfied that they have ground out some victories.
"It's a difficult situation to be in," he said. "We're the top of the table and everyone is gunning for us. But it's a position we welcome, we'd rather than be there than chasing the title.
"Early on this season we playing a bit better but right now we are still finding ways to get results."
