Danny Wilson delivers verdict on Rangers title hopes
Rangers defender Danny Wilson has dismissed suggestions Rangers are back in a race for the Scottish Premiership after picking up four wins in a row under interim boss Graeme Murty.
Back-to-back wins over Aberdeen were followed by victories against Owen Coyle’s Ross County and Neil Lennon’s Hibs over the last week.
Rangers became the first team in the Scottish Premiership to win four in a row so far this season and have closed the gap to league leaders Celtic to five points but Wilson insists the Light Blues can’t afford to look further ahead than the next game.
“A title race? Honestly, I don’t think we can look that far ahead because we are in the middle of December,” Wilson said, as quoted by the Daily Record.
“Last month, just before we played Aberdeen, we were miles off it and look at what people were saying.
“After two defeats we were about to cave in apparently. It’s the old boring cliche – one game at a time. This game is just as big as any we have had recently.

“We can get built up by people from the outside but we know we have to keep winning.”
The Gers take on St. Johnstone at Ibrox on Saturday as they look to record their fifth win in a row with a trip to Old Firm rivals Celtic looming at the end of the month.
The Ibrox giants lead third-place Aberdeen on goal difference with Hibs six points further back.
Wilson was a peripheral figure in the Rangers squad for long spells this season but has come back to the fore in the last few months as a regular feature in the starting XI under interim boss Graeme Murty.
The former Liverpool defender has impressed in recent weeks since coming back into the side after Pedro Caixinha’s sacking and should feature against Tommy Wright’s side on Saturday afternoon.
