Andy Little has said that whilst the press and fans are entitled to talk about the possibility of Rangers going unbeaten this campaign, that's not a subject of talk for the players.
But since he was asked the question, why not strive for it?
Speaking to the Official Site Little concurs with everything else that has come directly out of the club since the press made this issue, in downplaying expectations and showing a bit more respect to other teams than some media outlets have done when suggesting we could easily go unbeaten this year in the league but whilst showing that respect to our league colleagues, and also not wanted the fans to get carried away, or the players to be complacent, equally he sees no reason why that can't be an aim of the club.
But it's something they will have to work to earn, and certainly not something they should expect, demand or have a hissy fit over if it doesn't play out like that.
Rangers certainly have a good 100% start in the league, but Forfar should be a reminder about expectations being ahead of where we are as a club currently.
'There hasn't been any talk of that, not with the manager and not with the team. Fans will certainly come up to us saying that and friends will too and my thought would be why not try?'
Try should be the buzzword really.
'It's a challenge and I like challenges, we need to have things to aim for but we need to just get through each game and take things from there.'
In more personal news, the striker also talked about his desire to earn himself a new contract and continue at the club helping us reach where we all want to be.
Little has found the net the six times so far this season after scoring himself 25 last campaign, but he knows competition is strong and at the tender age of 24 years old he certainly has more development to go through and all things considered, he's by far from the finished product, but he's certainly making the right noises and the right impact on the pitch for him to achieve his aim.
Little's current contract expires at the end of the season but Rangers do hold a further 12 month option on him, and he admits he's quite like the club to do away with the option, and just give him a new long term contract.
'It's going to be another couple of years before we are back in the top flight and it would be great to be back playing that level with Rangers. I'd love to stay and hopefully I can if the club wants to keep me.'
On that score, Little seems in luck, because Ally McCoist certainly doesn't appear to want to let the player go, especially given his overall consistency, versatility and desire to just do well on the pitch.
'I'm sure Andy and I and his representatives will probably sit down in the not too distant future to chat about that.'
