Ally McCoist's side have been in superb form so far this term as they have stormed into a commanding position at the top of the League One standings.

Daly has been one of the key men for the Light Blues as he has hit 18 goals for the Gers since his summer switch from Dundee United.

Rangers will round off the year with a Boxing Day clash with Stranraer and a meeting with nearest rivals Dunfermline on December 30 as they look to wrap up the title as quickly as possible.

Another three straight wins for McCoist's side would see them break a 114-year-old club record and the Irishman is determined to keep up the momentum.

"If we take our eye off the ball or we start to look too far ahead that could be costly," Daly said.

"We just need to concentrate on the next game and try to put everything into the 90 minutes. If we can get three points then we can focus on the next one.

"We are aware we have won every league game and there is that added pressure, but it's a good pressure to have on you.

"I think every year is the same, I try to set myself little targets and I'm probably slightly ahead of where I want to be at this moment, which is great.

"My next target is to reach 20 and then after that 25, so I hopefully I can get there sooner rather than later.

"When I spoke to the manager about signing for the club he talked to me about getting balls into the box and that's what my game needs.

"I need plenty of service and credit to the boys for they have been fantastic for me this year. They've given me great service and, thankfully, I've been there to put them away."

Meanwhile, Rangers have donated 650 tickets to people who are affected by homelessness and living in isolated circumstances for Thursday's Stranraer clash.

Daly was at Murray Park yesterday to hand over the briefs to former Ibrox star Ally Dawson, who works closely with homeless charities. Each person attending the match will also receive a voucher for a hot meal and a drink.
