Rangers teenage talent names the Ibrox teammate who gives him constant advice

Rangers midfielder Liam Burt is thankful to Gers teammate Kenny Miller.

Rangers midfielder Liam Burt has told the club’s official website that teammate Kenny Miller has been helping him a lot.

Burt is just 17 years of age and plays as a midfielder, and he recently signed a new contract with Rangers.

Miller is one of the most experienced players in the current Gers squad and is currently in his third spell at Ibrox.

The Scottish striker has been helping Burt, who is thankful to the former Celtic man for his input.

“Kenny Miller has been great for giving me tips and encouraging me, but I feel part of the squad given how welcome everyone has made me,” the teenager told Rangers’ official website.

“Kenny gives me advice all the time. When I went on in the Raith game he wished me good luck and told me to do what I’m used to doing, and that gave me a real boost of confidence going onto the park.”

Burt has also thanked Rangers boss Mark Warburton and assistant manager David Weir.

“They have new ideas and that suits my style of play well,” the youngster told Rangers' official website. “I can play number 10 behind the striker or I can play right midfield and left midfield – anywhere in an attacking role really.

“Both the manager and David are really good coaches who give you great advice, and it is a really high standard of training too that they have us doing on a daily basis.”

Burt is a very talented young midfielder, and it seems that key figures at Rangers are helping him develop his game and reach his full potential.

The youngster will have to do a lot more and work very hard in order to establish himself in the Rangers first team.

With the Gers set for automatic promotion to the Scottish Premiership at the end of the season, it will not be easy for Burt, especially as competition for places and pressure on players will be massive during the 2016-17 campaign.
