Rangers' Lee McCulloch believes his club are on the verge of achieving something special.
The Scottish forward is feeling positive after his side's 3-0 win over Lyon in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday.
The Gers' superb start to the season continued with the club edging closer to the knockout stages of the competition for the second time in three years.
Their success comes after a chaotic summer with many newcomers, including McCulloch, joining the squad.
McCulloch is now fully focused on progressing in the competition and is relishing the chance to add to his goals after opening the scoring against Lyon.
He said: "Everyone is delighted with how we are doing. It's six points out of six and we have got Barcelona back to back coming up.
"It's going to be very difficult and it's important we don't get carried away. But these are exciting times for us.
"The quality of the squad, even the players who were on the bench or in the stand here, is brilliant.
"We are going to need everybody to pull together. We have a great team spirit, and I think that shows on the pitch as well."
Rangers' success means they are only four points away from the target clubs set themselves for advancing to the knockout stages.
McCulloch is confident that the team can stay focused in what he hopes can be a historic season for the club.
"We are going to enjoy this but we are more concerned with qualification. Everyone's talking about that now but it is still a long way away.
"There's lots of football to be played, and lots of points to be won and lost so we will see what happens.
"As long as we keep playing like we did against Lyon, we won't go far wrong."
