AS Roma boss Claudio Ranieri admits their 3-1 defeat to Palermo may have put paid to their title hopes.

Ranieri concedes they were completely outplayed by the Rosanero.

He remarked: "I don't know if we can achieve the miracle, as we need the kind of consistency that we should've found in tonight's game. If we had won, it would've been a clear signal to the rest of the League."
