The champions have won nine SPL games in a row but Strachan refused to make too much of the increased advantage.
"It would matter if it was there was only one game left", he said.
"As we all know, form and results can change dramatically.
"We've won nine SPL games in a row and in that time we have had to play Champions League games and Co-operative Insurance Cup games and have had to deal with that.
"So the players can be pleased with themselves.
"I was pleased with their attitude against Kilmarnock, the stadium was not buzzing and we had to get the crowd on our side.
"There was good enthusiasm although we wasted too many chances which was the only disappointment.
"You are always nervous when it is only 1-0 but once we got the second I knew we were okay."
