But Warnock was disappointed at the plight of the club he supported as a boy and took into the top flight in 2006.
He said: "I enjoy the way we play. We have scored some great goals and played some fabulous football. But I don't enjoy seeing my old team in the situation they are in. You can see they are fighting for their lives."
He added: "We were just better than them on the night. It's disappointing, they are a fantastic club, but you can't dwell on it. It's dog eat dog these days."
Rangers are now nine points clear at the top and, crucially, 13 clear of Cardiff in third.
"You just have to keep going, we know it's in our hands but no-one will get carried away in our camp," he added.
