Newly-promoted Rangers remain in the bottom three but only by two points, and the veteran manager insists that it is far too early to earmark them for relegation.
"There is nothing in it," he told talkSPORT. "We're [five] points off tenth place. It's very tight.
"We've got every chance [of surviving] we're not write-offs and nor is anybody else.
"Ourselves, Leicester and Burnley are the three teams everyone thinks will go down but I'm sure all three of us will have a real go."
Rangers host fellow Londoners Chelsea at Loftus Road on Saturday, before facing reigning champions Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium a week later.
