Lee Wallace insists no-one at Rangers is keeping an eye on Hibernian, despite the Easter Road club pulling level on points at the top of the Scottish Championship.

Rangers are top on goal difference after being held to a 1-1 draw by Livingston on Saturday, while Hibs defeated Alloa 1-0.

The Leith side are unbeaten in 15 games and ended Mark Warburton's side's 100 per cent start to the league campaign earlier this month.

But Wallace insists the Light Blues are not looking over their shoulders.

The captain said: "None of us have spoken about Hibs and none of us will. We have no interest in what they are doing.

"Our focus is fully on Rangers and we can learn from Saturday's dropped points.

"Other teams will look at what Livi did and try to deploy the same type of game plan. We must get familiar with it."

Rangers remain top of the Scottish Championship table, but only on goal difference, after they were held to a 1-1 draw at Livingston on Saturday

Gers took the lead against Livi through Jason Holt but had to settle for a point after Myles Hippolyte's equaliser.

And Wallace admitted it was a "frustrated dressing room afterwards".

He added: "There were periods in the game when we were the proper Rangers.

"At other times, we slipped below the standards we demand and became sloppy and, after they scored, a bit more frantic. We're frustrated but we'll not be sitting there sulking.

"Even when we were winning games by five and six goals, we remained grounded. We were not talking about winning titles when it seemed everyone else was."

Rangers are next in action against St Mirren in the Petrofac Training Cup semi-final on Saturday.
