Kenny Miller insists Rangers don't need to spend millions in preparation for Scottish Premiership return

Mark Warburton's men have already wrapped up the Scottish Championship title.

Kenny Miller has insisted that Rangers' success in the transfer market last season proves that they do not need to go out and splash the cash in preparation for their return to the Scottish Premiership, The Scottish Sun reports.

The Gers have already been allowed to turn their attention to their top flight plans having wrapped up the Scottish Championship title. 

And while the prospect of stepping up a division may tempt some into thinking that opening the chequebook is the best way for the team to progress, Miller has suggested that repeating their strategy from last summer may bring them more success than simply spending money.

"A lot of things are said about potential numbers that we need to spend but I don't think it's anything to do with money," he told The Scottish Sun.

"We need to get the right character and right quality of player in.

"The manager has shown that this season with the players we've got.

"We could have sat here this time last year talking about Waghorn, Tavernier, Foderingham, Kiernan, Holt, Halliday and people would have said, 'They're guys getting released from this club or that club and with the level they are playing at can they make it at a big club like Rangers?'.

"Well they've proved this year they can."

The Scottish Cup semi-final win against Celtic, as well as the victories in the previous rounds over Dundee and Kilmarnock, prove that the Light Blues have a side capable of doing well at the highest level.

However, the fact that they were only able to name five substitutes in the semi-final arguably proves that they need more depth to cope with the demands of a full season in the top flight, even if the victories suggest that wholesale changes will not be required.
