Rangers loanee Dominic Ball names hardest trainer at Ibrox

Rangers youngster Dominic Ball has high praise for Kenny Miller.

Speaking to the official Rangers website, Dominic Ball has admitted that Kenny Miller is the hardest trainer in the current Gers’ squad, praising him as the one of the best trainers he has every worked with.

Ball said: “Everyone trains hard but Kenny Miller stands out. I’m not sure if it is because he is so sharp or experienced, but he’s one of the hardest trainers I’ve ever worked with.”

Miller is the real veteran figure in an extremely young Rangers team, and he has already started coaching the development team alongside his playing commitments.

He may not have featured as much in the first-team as he would have liked, although this is not a surprise given the form of Martyn Waghorn in front of goal, but he still is one of the most professional members of Mark Warburton’s set-up.

Ball believes he is not only the hardest trainer in the Rangers squad, but one of the hardest he has ever seen - which is high praise given that the centre-back has worked under Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino.

The Argentine is renowned for pushing his players remarkably hard, but Miller has outperformed all the stars of the North London club - despite his age of 35-years-old.

Warburton likely shares many of the same training methods as Pochettino given their shared philosophy of highly pressing and attacking football, and Miller has adapted himself amazingly well to play a role in a team which does not look suited to his current skill set.
