Rangers are starting to falter in their search for Scottish Championship success, and Kenny Miller has admitted to the Daily Mail that he doubts the younger players in the squad have the mentality needed for a fight for promotion.
When asked about his younger teammates, Miller said: “I know they have the ability. That [mentality] is a question where I don’t think you can give a definite answer. Only time will tell.”
Having started the season in such great form, the Gers have started to struggle to results in recent weeks.
They lost to league challengers Hibs, and have drawn at Livingston, and at home to Morton in the last three games.
Mark Warburton’s team are struggling to replicate the style of play that they showed at the beginning of the campaign, and as the players have proven their abilities, there is a sense that it is mentality and a lack of experience which is costing the side.
Warburton has a young squad, with many players turning out for the Gers who have not played for a club of such a size before.
The pressure to get promoted is larger than ever due to the financial needs, and the Ibrox atmosphere looks to be affecting some of Warburton’s men.
Miller is one of the experienced stars in the current set-up, and rather than explaining this lack of mentality, he should be using his years of playing to help the younger players learn how to deal with playing for Rangers.
