Rangers' Kenny Miller looking to complete the journey starting with Ibrox win

Kenny Miller wants to complete Rangers' journey back to the Scottish Premiership, starting with a win on Thursday night.

Kenny Miller has told the Glasgow Evening Times that he wants to complete “The Journey” starting at Ibrox on Thursday night.

Miller has excelled in the play-off campaign and is now looking for another packed out Ibrox crowd to push the Light Blues to a first-leg victory against Motherwell.

The striker along with other members of the team and Stuart McCall have praised the impact a full stadium has had on the team and the players have repaid the supporters with wins at home against Queen of the South and Hibernian.

Another winning performance could give Rangers an important lead going into the game at Fir Park with their current play-off formula being win at home and hold out for the result away.

Miller doesn’t think it’s any coincidence that the recent upturn in home form has come when Ibrox has been near capacity and he hopes another full house can be there to witness a win against Motherwell.

"I don't think it is any coincidence that we have performed as well as we have with the number of fans we've had cheering us on," he said.

"The atmosphere is the Queen of the South game and the Hibs game are the best we have experienced all season.

"Apart from the league games against Hearts, they were totally unlike anything the lads have experienced all season. The place was jumping.

"There were over 40,000 fans at both games. It was just like the old Rangers for me. It definitely made a difference and gave the lads that extra edge.”

The former Scotland international is fully aware – along with the rest of the players – how important the two games are for the future of the club, with Miller firmly believing that they belong in the Scottish Premiership.

He admits that the squad are tired following the four games they have played to get this far in the play-offs, but Miller thinks that the crowd's backing on Thursday night can help push them over the line.
