Rangers coach David Weir raves about Kenny Miller

Rangers FC - Ibrox

Kenny Miller has scored 13 goals for Rangers this season.

Speaking to the official Rangers website, David Weir has raved about veteran striker Kenny Miller, having seen the forward net his 13th goal of the season at the weekend.

Weir said: “Kenny has been fantastic, and he still has that same energy and that same enthusiasm for the game that he has always had. Day-in and day-out in training, even the day after the game, he is still full of those qualities, and that’s a massive asset for our football club.”

Miller scored an audacious dipping volley against Queen of the South, with his strike handing all three points to the Gers in a tough game.

Despite not fitting the youthful and energetic profile of the team Mark Warburton has built at Ibrox, Miller, 36, continues to have an impact in the Scottish Championship.

He has scored 13 times in 29 games in all competitions, also chipping in with seven assists, and his leadership abilities on the field of play making him something of a second captain who can be relied upon to lead the younger players in the team.

Miller may not have the same physical qualities that he used to possess, but his eye for goal is just as sharp, and he has treated his body in such a way that suggests he can continue to play for many more years.

The forward is 36, but he is scoring consistently at second-tier level, and he clearly feels he can step up to the Premiership with Rangers.

They look set to win promotion this season, and Miller will be hoping he is leading the line for Warburton’s team next season.
