The striker celebrated with his Gers team-mates after the 3-0 victory over Airdrieonians at Ibrox on Wednesday night.

For the three points, achieved courtesy of a Lee McCulloch hat-trick, put the Light Blues out of sight at the top of the third-tier table.

Ally McCoist's men are 26 points clear of their nearest rivals Dunfermline with eight games remaining.

But Daly, top scorer at the Ibrox club with 23 goals to his name, stressed they would still be trying to win all of the matches they have left.

For he reckons going throughout the entire 2013/14 campaign without losing a single game would be a great achievement for the Glasgow club.

He staid: "It would be fantastic if we could go the whole season unbeaten. There are obviously still some tough games - starting today with Dunfermline, who have had a really good season themselves. They will probably think themselves unlucky if they don't get promoted as well.

"They are up there and still have a chance - they are nine points clear of third place.

"They've done remarkably well, too. They will be looking to kick on as well. We've had some tough games against them already and we're expecting nothing less than that."

Daly added: "We have still got a lot of important games coming up so we need to focus on that and make sure we concentrate and don't take our eye off the ball.

"We have got the Ramsdens Cup final next month and the replay of the Scottish Cup on Monday night as well. We have got some big games and plenty to look forward to."

Rangers have been criticised in recent weeks for poor performances against part-time opponents like Arbroath, Stenhousemuir, East Fife and Albion Rovers.

But Daly believes fans will look back on their campaign kindly in years to come. He said: "We have dropped four points, so I think to do that so far this season is remarkable. It is a great achievement.

"You are going to have performances where it is not to the standard you have set yourselves. But those are the games where, if you can win them, it shows you are a good team."
