Miller: The key strength that Rangers are now showing

Rangers 3

Kenny Miller believes that Rangers have started to show a key strength.

Rangers have started to pick up since Stuart McCall’s appointment, and striker Kenny Miller has told the official Gers website what the team are starting to show.

Three consecutive wins against Hibs, Cowdenbeath and Hearts have lifted the Gers into second place and well within play-off contention, and there appears to be a real team spirit growing at Ibrox.

After stuttering to a number of poor results in the latter stages of the previous regime, it now appears as if McCall is having a positive impact both on and off the field of play, and the Scottish giants will enter the Championship play-offs in likely the best form of any of their opponents.

The head coach has the advantage of being able to use the player’s futures against them, with many stars out of contract in the summer. By warning the players who may leave the club that they will not have their contracts renewed if they don’t play well forces them to improve, and McCall has shown himself to be a great motivator in his short time at Ibrox.

It is this sense of team unity and spirit which Miller believes has been the biggest improvement from the previous regime.

The striker told the official Rangers website: “We're showing a better cohesion in the team now and there's a better feeling about it [promotion] now.”

Rangers have six games left before the end of the season, and will likely head into the play-offs at the end of that run.
