Kenny Miller insists he was confident of big goal tally at Rangers

The striker bagged his 20th goal of the season on Sunday.

Rangers striker Kenny Miller has insisted he was always confident of achieving a big goal tally for the club this season, in comments to the club’s official website.

The striker bagged his 20th goal of the season on Sunday as the Gers played out a 2-2 draw with St Mirren.

That is an impressive tally for a man who is set to celebrate his 37th birthday at the end of this year.

Indeed, it is a number few would have expected him to manage, but he insists that following the 6-2 win over Hibs at the beginning of the campaign he always felt he would get opportunities this season.

“With that first game at Hibs all those months ago and the way we played, I felt if I played I would get opportunities and score goals,” he told

“I don’t ever set targets, but it’s nice to get to that landmark. Personally, it’s been a pleasure to be involved since the manager and Davie [Weir] came in."

“We have spoken many times and outlined the goals for the season, and the way they wanted us to go about our business, and the lads have embraced it.”

Mark Warburton will now be hoping Miller can continue this goalscoring form next season as Rangers head back into the Scottish Premiership.

Aside from goals though, his relatively young side will definitely need his experience to help guide them as they look to challenge Celtic for the title.

Although he is unlikely to see as much game time next year, this campaign has gone a long way to demonstrating he still has a lot to offer, even at 36-years-old.
