Kenny Miller: "I want to stay at Premiership Rangers"



Rangers striker Kenny Miller has admitted he wants a new deal, but has confirmed talks have not begun regarding drafting one up, and his focus is firmly on promotion.

On his desire to stay, he said:

“This is a club I’ve spent a lot of time at throughout my career and I absolutely love the place, which is why I wanted to come back. To get us back to the Premiership would be huge and everyone is focused on that. I’m not really worried or thinking about the contract situation too much because a big part of it will come down to whether or not we’re successful.”

Unlike Kris Boyd’s rather defeatist stance a few months ago, castigating his own inability to perform, Miller’s position has slightly more bravado without cockiness, and accepts that the contract situation will deal with itself based on promotion or otherwise.

He went on:

“Everyone should put contracts and the likes on hold because it’s more important we get back to where we belong. Everybody has to get their head down and realise the most important thing is to get the club back to the Premiership. After that, if we’ve done it, then there is probably going to be a better chance of people getting contracts.”

For someone who has seen a bit of a renaissance under new manager Stuart McCall, Miller’s comments seem fair and to the point, as opposed to arrogant or submissive.

He also points out getting through the playoffs will be far from a foregone conclusion.

“We know come the play-offs – whether it be Hibs, Queen of the South, Falkirk or Raith Rovers – they are going to be tough matches home and away and we’re going to have to be at the top of our game to get through. We can still finish the season on a real high by getting back to the Premiership, which is where we wanted to be when we started out on this journey three years ago.”

However, Rangers’ convincing dispatches of both Hibs and Raith Rovers recently suggest the Ibrox outfit have the tools to at least earn a spot in the final.

    1. Agreed, Like Jig he lost most of his pace and just looked slow. That was his main thing getting in first. We need less older high wage earners and more youth prospects. We should be shopping from the championship taking the best of this division up with us. Safe from relegation next season and UEFA spot the following season. Anything more than this is a bonus, I like the player and think he has been a servant but time to move on now methinks.

  6. To be fair, Kenny coming back would have been a masterstroke, if it had come off. It hasn't, although worked better than signing Boyd. Miller has tried, but as others have mentioned, he has lost some pace which was one of his main assets.

  8. Give him respect, By sounds of it Kenny is focused on gaining promotion, In last few weeks he's put some serious amount of effort in and its not gone unseen, So well done for that.

    If promotion is gained, Then another year wouldn't do him any harm, but I do agree he should get his coaching badge!!!
