Rangers defender Danny Wilson responds when asked whether the Scottish Championship title is now wrapped up

Mark Warburton's men are currently 11 points clear at the top of the table.

Danny Wilson has admitted that Rangers are in a very strong position in the Scottish Championship, but refused to accept that the title race was virtually over, the Daily Mail reports.

The Light Blues' narrow win over St Mirren on Saturday moved them 11 points clear of their nearest rivals Hibernian, who fell to their second consecutive defeat as they lost 3-2 to Dumbarton, just days after they had been stunned 3-0 at home to Morton. 

Despite their advantage however, Wilson was quick to play down the idea that his side had booked their automatic return to the Scottish Premiership when asked whether the title was theirs to lose.

"I wouldn't say that. We are in a commanding position now. We don't plan on losing any matches, but football is a funny game," he said, as reported by the Mail.

"We need to go into these fixtures doing the right things and put points on the board. The table obviously looks a bit better, but we just concentrate on our games."

With 10 games to go, Mark Warburton will surely be insisting to his players that if they let their standards slip, the door may become open for Hibs, and perhaps Falkirk also - who are three points behind Alan Stubbs' men - to go on the kind of run that will see some pressure applied to the Gers.

And while Rangers' recent form is so strong - with 10 wins coming in their last 12 games in all competitions - that some may question whether complacency could become a factor, the manner in which some of their latest results have come has been slightly unconvincing, which will mean that Wilson and his teammates will be under no illusions as to how hard they still have to work if they hope to get across the finishing line.
