Ronald de Boer praises Rangers striker Kenny Miller

Kenny Miller

Ronald de Boer rates former Rangers teammate and current Ibrox star Kenny Miller highly.

Ronald de Boer has told The Scottish Sun that he respects his former Rangers teammate Kenny Miller.

De Boer was on the books of Rangers between 2000 and 2004, while Miller is currently in his third spell at Ibrox.

The former Netherlands international attacker was teammates with the Scottish striker when he was at the Gers.

The former Barcelona man has spoken highly of Miller, who also had a spell at Rangers’ Old Firm rivals Celtic.

“When I was at Rangers he was our youngest - and now he is the oldest,” De Boer told The Scottish Sun about Miller.

“He was always a goalscorer and a hard worker but now with his experience he brings something extra to the team. I have a lot of respect for Kenny Miller.”

Miller is 36 years of age and is a senior figure in the Rangers dressing room, and he remains a very important player on the pitch.

The Scotsman knows the club inside out, and he has been important in the development of young players this season.

The former Wolverhampton Wanderers and Derby County striker has chipped in with important goals as well for Rangers.

Rangers will return to action on Saturday afternoon when they take on Hibernian in the final of the Scottish Cup at Hampden Park in Glasgow.

The Gers have won the Scottish Championship title and the Scottish Challenge Cup this season.
