The 37-year-old marksman featured off the bench in Rangers' 6-1 demolition of Ayr United in the Scottish Cup on Sunday - his first appearance in 18 days due to a hamstring injury.
It doesn't seem that long ago that Miller's Ibrox career looked finished after falling out of favour under former manager Pedro Caixinha, but the legendary Scottish striker has earned a reprieve since Murty has taken the reins in Glasgow and he'll be desperate to enjoy what could be his last season with the Premiership side.
The arrival of Jason Cummings in January is bound to have ramifications for Miller in terms of regular football, but the 43-year-old manager claims that his attitude and enthusiasm remain as high as ever in spite of the likelyhood of reduced playing time.
Murty said to The Glasgow Evening Times: “You see him like that every single day in training. He brings that enthusiasm, that application, that attitude and that quality as well.
“We need to make sure that, if we are going to have people that are keeping him out of the team, they are keeping him out of the team because they are at a higher level of all of those things.
“We have got no doubt that Kenny is a top professional and is a top guy to have in and around the changing room so bringing him back is a special thing for us and we need to utilise him correctly.”
