Former Rangers attacking midfielder Charlie Miller has insisted that while second place would be a good finish this season, they should not be happy to finish in that position in future, the Evening Times reports.

The Gers are currently third in the Scottish Premiership, but their title hopes already look very bleak. Celtic are 11 points clear of their Old Firm foes, and have a game in hand to potentially extend that advantage further.

And while Miller suggested that catching and moving above Aberdeen - who sit one point above the Light Blues - would be a solid return this term, he hinted that only winning the title will be good enough in future.

"I know we have just come back to the league but there is still that expectation there on the players. Mark will know that as well because he is at a massive club," he said, as reported by the Evening Times.

"We always want to win everything but it looks like second will need to be the aim now. Next season will be a big one for Mark.

"If they finish second this year it will be a good season but you can't accept second place. Let's see how we go and I am sure they will improve in the coming months."

Mark Warburton's men have struggled for consistency during their first campaign back at the highest level. They are still yet to win three league games in a row, and have certainly dropped points in games that they would have expected to win fairly comfortably. 

But with two fixtures against Hearts and another against Aberdeen ahead in their next four games, the supporters of the Ibrox club will perhaps get a much better idea of how much progress they have actually made since their return to the highest level over the next few weeks.
