Kenny Miller targets Scottish Championship triumph with Rangers next season

Kenny Miller believes that Rangers can win the Scottish Championship title next season.

Rangers striker Kenny Miller has told The Scottish Sun that the team aim to gain automatic promotion to the Scottish Premiership next season.

The Gers failed to get promoted to the Scottish top flight this term, as they fell at the final hurdle.

The Glasgow giants finished third in the Scottish Championship in the ‘regular’ season with 67 points from 36 matches, just three points behind second-placed Hibernian.

Rangers defeated Queen of the South 3-2 on aggregate in the Premiership playoff quarter-finals and Hibs 2-1 on aggregate in the semi-finals.

However, Stuart McCall’s side failed to get the better of Motherwell in the playoff final, losing 3-1 at Ibrox in the first leg before going down 3-0 away from home at Fir Park in the second leg.

The way Rangers crumbled against Motherwell came as a huge disappointment, but Miller is confident that the team can bounce back and win the Championship next season.

“That was the whole idea this year,” the 35-year-old told The Sun. “We’ve fallen at the final hurdle and ultimately we weren’t good enough over the two legs against Motherwell.

“But even now the aim next season is winning the league and getting back to the Premiership. Hopefully there will be a year or so left in me after that as well.”
