KENNY MILLER believes Rangers will be rejuvenated when they line-up to face Hibernian in the Scottish Cup final on May 21.

The Light Blues are currently on a four day sabbatical before returning to training on Friday for a fortnight in preparation for the massive clash at the National Stadium.

That two-week spell will also feature a closed-door friendly match, and Miller reckons the lighter programme will do him and his teammates the world of good.

He explained: “We have earned our rest, and it’s important that we recover as there are a few lads with little knocks and niggles, and these days off and three weeks before the cup final will give us time to recover.

“Come May 21 we should be fighting fit, ready to go and definitely be fresh.”

Winning the Scottish Cup would complete an unprecedented treble for Mark Warburton’s side, and an unexpected bonus for Miller et al.

The 20-goal striker knows the winning of the Championship and the Petrofac Cup were both expected and necessary, but reckons a Scottish Cup win would make this truly a season to remember.

He explained: “When you set out at the start of the season, you can try and belittle the fact there are no top-flight teams in the Petrofac, but the bottom line is we had to go out and do it, and if we didn’t, it would have been an absolute disaster for the club as we’ve seen in the last few years.

“So there is an added pressure which comes with that, so we had to go out and do the right things and make sure we were successful.

“The League was always the priority, and we did that. The Petrofac was a great bonus and a fantastic day to go and win that for the first time as well, and what an end it would be if we go and pick the Scottish Cup up and get ourselves into the Europa League as well.”
