Rangers manager Steven Gerrard has described his side's 4-0 defeat of Aberdeen in the Scottish Premiership as "outstanding" but insists he will not let his players get "carried away".

The Gers have now won 13 of their opening 15 league assignments this season with their latest success putting them 11 points clear of Celtic at the Premiership summit.

Gerrard's men opened the scoring through a long-range effort from Ryan Kent before Kemar Roofe doubled their lead.

Scott Arfield and James Tavernier also got on the scoresheet to seal an emphatic win for the Glasgow outfit, who have made their best start to a season in 53 years.

Gerrard's men also recorded their 17th clean sheet of the season in all competitions and the Liverpool legend believes he could not have asked for any more from his players, who are well on course to break Celtic's run of top-flight titles.

Speaking to Sky Sports after the match, Gerrard said: "Very pleased. I thought we were strong throughout. Four good goals and a clean sheet.

"Can't ask for any more from the players, to be honest. Some of the quality at times today was outstanding.

"We've had a very positive, strong start. We keep moving forward. It's still November. We know there's a lot of hard work to do. We certainly won't be getting carried away."

Rangers are next in action on Thursday when they play host to Portuguese giants Benfica in the Europa League.

The Light Blues, who played out a 3-3 draw in the return fixture with Benfica, are 2.20 for the win, while the visitors are 3.10 and the draw is 3.60.
