The Kilmarnock striker scored a late consolation goal in Saturday's 4-1 home loss to Dundee United to move past Henrik Larsson's old record of 174 set during his time with Celtic between 1997 and 2004.
However, the goal was overshadowed by a disappoint loss to Killie which really took the gloss of the achievement for the Scotland international.
"The goal is a big moment for me and it is nice to score but it's the team that matters most," he said.
"While I am proud to score the goal I would like to have won the game too.
"I am paid to put the ball in the net and it was a good header. When my career is finished this is something I will look back on with even more pride.
"We are a million miles away from Dundee United as they are a top-six team and we need to focus on the sides round about us in the table."
