Scottish Cup

Rangers striker Kenny Miller confident of winning Scottish Cup

Rangers can win the Scottish Cup, says Gers striker Kenny Miller.

Rangers striker Kenny Miller has told The Daily Mail that his side can win the Scottish Cup this season.

The Gers will take on Kilmarnock at home in the fifth round of the prestigious cup competition this weekend.

Miller believes that Rangers can win the tie at Ibrox in Glasgow on Saturday afternoon and go all the way in the competition.

“Why can we not win the Cup?” the 36-year-old told The Daily Mail. “We’re a good team. We’ve got some fantastic players. To win a cup, you’re probably going to need a little bit of luck along the way, whether it be in the draw or in an actual game, but we want to win it.

“We want to be as a successful as we can, which means winning the league, winning the Petrofac (Training Cup) and winning the Scottish Cup. To do that, we’re going to have to get past Killie on Saturday. That’s the first step.”

Kilmarnock are a Scottish Premiership club, but they are struggling at the moment. Lee McCulloch’s side are currently second from bottom in the table with 24 points from 25 matches.

Killie are 11 points clear of bottom side Dundee United, who have played two fewer games.

Rangers are flying high in the Scottish Championship at the moment and look set to gain automatic promotion to the Scottish Premiership at the end of the season.

Playing at home will give Mark Warburton’s side an advantage on Saturday, and it should not come as a surprise to anyone if the Gers win against Kilmarnock.
