Rangers striker Kenny Miller has told the Daily Express that James Tavernier and Martyn Waghorn should know that the grass isn't always greener on the other side.

The Gers may have snapped up a host of new signings this summer, including Joey Barton and Niko Kranjcar, but they may face problems keeping Tavernier and Waghorn.

Reports from The Guardian on Friday claimed that right back Tavernier and striker Waghorn had both been offered new contracts to stay at Ibrox, but both players had snubbed the offers.

Given that Tavernier hit 15 goals from defence last season and Waghorn finished the season as the club's top goalscorer with 28 goals, the duo feel they should be handsomely rewarded for their performances last season, and the offers seemingly didn't reflect that.

It remains to be seen whether Rangers offer the two players another contract this summer, but it's suggested that clubs back in England are considering moves to lure Tavernier and Waghorn back south of the border.

Their potential exits have caused concern amongst Rangers fans, and one Gers star has now warned the two players about their decisions over their futures.

Veteran striker Kenny Miller has spoken to the Daily Express and suggested that he hopes the squad will stay together, warning both players that the grass isn't always greener elsewhere - but did acknowledge that contract negotiations can be difficult.

"The grass is not always greener," said Miller. "In football, players and managers move on, but we are hopeful we can keep the lads together. They did a great job last season and it’s about showing that consistency and performance again this season. They enjoy their football here and the demands, and they enjoy being successful."

"There are a lot of factors coming into play when it comes to signing a new deal. These things happen in football when it comes to contract negotiations. Waggy and Tav were great for us last year. It’s always hard to hit the ground running at a new club, especially when it’s a club the size of Rangers," he added.

Do you think Tavernier and Waghorn will end up signing new contracts?
