Alan Stubbs' men have closed the gap at the top of the table in recent weeks.

Wes Foderingham has insisted that Rangers are solely focusing on their own form as they try to get back to the Scottish Premiership, despite nearest challengers Hibernian closing the gap at the top of the table in recent weeks, The Scottish Sun report.

Mark Warburton's side began the campaign at a blistering pace, winning their first 11 games in the league, but they have opened the door slightly for their rivals, having drawn once and lost once in their last four fixtures.

Meanwhile, Hibs have bounced back from a slow start - where they lost two of their opening three league games - and have now put together a 12-match unbeaten run, that includes just one draw, to now find themselves just three points off the Gers at the top of the table.

But Foderingham wants his teammates to put Hibs' challenge to the back of their mind, and just concentrate on picking up points. 

"We don't concentrate on Hibs. They are a good side and have done fantastically well so far and they are three points behind us," he said.

"But we concentrate on ourselves. There's a big game coming up against them but there are a couple of games before that so we'll concentrate on those games and try to get the wins," he added.

With Hibernian inflicting Rangers' only league defeat of the season, the pair's next meeting, at Ibrox on December 28th, will provide a real indication of where the momentum lies going into the new year.

Warburton's men suggested that they were going to run away with the title with their early form, but they now have a very serious rival to contend with.
