Rangers’ Kenny Miller focused on the playoffs, not his future

Rangers striker Kenny Miller insists that he is not worried about his future right now.

Rangers striker Kenny Miller has told The Scottish Sun that he is not thinking about his future at the moment.

The 35-year-old former Scotland international’s current contract with the Scottish Championship outfit runs out at the end of the season.

No new deal is in place at the moment, and negotiations over fresh terms will begin only in the summer (if they begin at all).

Miller, who is in his third spell at Rangers, has insisted that at the moment he is focused only on helping the Gers get promoted to the Scottish Premiership.

“I can only speak for myself but the fact I’m out of contract in the summer is not a problem,” the former Celtic striker told The Scottish Sun.

“I’m firmly focused on beating Queen of the South over two legs, Hibs and then whoever finishes 11th in the Premiership.

“For me, getting the club back to where it belongs is a lot more important than sorting out our own futures.”

It is indeed remarkable that Miller is so committed to Rangers, especially as the club themselves do not appear to be making any move regarding his future.

The former Wolverhampton Wanderers and Derby County midfielder is one of the better players in the current Rangers squad, and his experience and quality will be important for the Gers in negotiating the playoffs.

Stuart McCall’s side will not find it easy to get promoted to the Premiership via the playoffs, though.

The Glasgow giants will take on Queen of the South over two legs, and if they win then they will face Hibernian.

If Rangers get the better of Hibs, then they will confront the 11th-placed side in the Premiership for a place in the Scottish top flight next season.
