Speaking to the Daily Mail, Kenny Miller has ruled out retiring this summer, admitting that he feels great and still wants to keep playing.
“I feel great,” the 35-year-old striker claimed. “It is down to a willingness to play. I just don't want to stop playing. As far as the way I feel goes, there is no reason for me to stop playing.
“You might lose a yard or so as time goes on, but I still feel I can play at the level I want to play at. I have a real desire to play. It is as simple as that. I have no visions of wrapping in a year, two years or three years. I want to play as long as I can.”
Miller is out of contract this summer, although he has an extension clause in his deal that can see him earn a new one-year deal.
The ageing forward has not been at top form this season, netting just eight goals in the Gers’ Championship campaign, but he has been an important presence in the 39 games he has played, and his experience could prove vital to seeing Rangers over the line in the play-offs.
Should Stuart McCall’s men win promotion back to the top flight, Miller is surely keen to extend his deal, as playing in the Premiership is the pinnacle of Scottish football. He may not have the consistent quality to perform at that level, but as a squad option, there are few players better than Miller.
Miller himself clearly believes he can still perform at the top level, and he will be looking to extend his deal to keep turning out with Rangers next season.
