“The lads did well and I’ve delighted to be involved with them," Miller told Rangers' official website. "Barrie’s goal was incredible. He’s got that in the locker there’s no doubt about that.

“He’s been fantastic for us all season and he has got better as the season has gone on as well. I thought he was outstanding today.

"Goal aside, I thought he was a real threat for us, a real outlet and a constant thorn in their side.His goal was just rewards for that and maybe the wee bit of luck with the penalty as well.”
