Rangers utility man Steven Whittaker insists the SPL leaders will not crack and throw away their commanding lead.
Gers regained their 10-point lead at the top of the table on Sunday following a fine 3-0 success over high-flying Hibernian.
Celtic striker Marc-Antoine Fortune claimed Gers could fold under the pressure of front-running for the rest of the season.
However, after Celtic squandered a two-goal lead to Aberdeen on Saturday it was Rangers who capitalised by disposing of Hibs.
Whittaker is not concerning himself with Fortune's comments, stating they will not pass up the chance of winning another title.
"I didn't even know about what (Fortune) said so it didn't motivate me," said the Gers utility man.
"I think we have our own motivation and that's to win a title. If you can't get motivated about that, then you shouldn't be playing for Rangers.
"With them slipping up on Saturday, it was important that we got the three points. But that's the case for any game, especially here at Ibrox."
