Kenny Miller wants to extend Rangers contract

Rangers striker Kenny Miller has outlined his desire to sign a new contract for Rangers.

Kenny Miller has told Peter and Roughie's Football Show on STV Glasgow that he wants to extend his stay at Rangers after gaining promotion.

Miller is one of a clutch of players that are out-of-contract at the end of the season and he now hopes that he can secure a new deal playing Premiership football with the Light Blues.

The ex-Scotland international brings a lot of experience to the squad but has become less effective in terms of goal scoring as age has taken its toll on the 35-year-old.

Whilst getting a new contract at Ibrox is high on Miller’s agenda, the immediate goal is taking Rangers back to the Scottish Premiership, with Saturday’s narrow 2-1 win against Queen of the South getting Stuart McCall’s side off to a good start.

They still have some way to go in the play-off campaign but Miller has his priorities sorted whilst being determined to stay at the club he loves.

"We want to get promoted and that is the immediate goal. Then we can sit down and see what happens,” he said.

"I want to stay where I am. I have said before that I love the place and my goal when I came back was to help the team get promoted and then ultimately get back to the top of Scottish football and challenging for that league.”

The striker knows that getting promoted is just the beginning for the club and the fans won’t accept them simply taking part in the Scottish Premiership.

Mounting a challenge against Celtic – if they are promoted – will take time, and patience will be required from the Rangers fans as they continue to rebuild.

The priority is now Sunday afternoon’s game against Queen of the South, with a draw enough to take the Gers through to the next stage against Hibernian.
