Mark Warburton raves about 'quite incredible' Gers supporters, explains Kenny Miller's inclusion

Rangers boss Mark Warburton has hailed the club's fans.

Rangers manager Mark Warburton has told the club's official website that Gers fans are 'quite incredible' - whilst also explaining Kenny Miller's inclusion against Kilmarnock tonight.

After a disappointing 1-1 draw away at Alloa Athletic on Saturday afternoon, Rangers are back in Scottish Cup action this evening, as they take on Kilmarnock at Rugby Park.

The first game between the two sides finished 0-0 at Ibrox, with a replay being played tonight to determine who goes through to the next round.

At half time, the score stands at Kilmarnock 1-1 Rangers, as Rory McKenzie equalised after Martyn Waghorn had opened the scoring from the penalty spot.

The Rangers team included veteran striker Kenny Miller, after he was dropped to the bench for the draw with Alloa over the weekend.

Speaking to the club's official website, manager Warburton has explained why Miller has been recalled tonight, stating that he has been 'outstanding' of late.

Warburton also raved about the 9,000 travelling Rangers fans tonight, stating that their support is 'quite incredible' for a midweek game.

"He really has," said Warburton. "He knows his body well, it's about getting the loading right. He was really effective again on Saturday, he came on, gave a good performance, upped the tempo and the quality again, so Kenny has been outstanding and deserved a start tonight."

"I just said to the players, 9,000 fans is quite incredible," said Warburton. "It's Tuesday night, a Champions Light night, it's outstanding backing."

Do Rangers have the best fans in Scotland?
