KENNY MILLER has insisted the thought of him having scored the Championship winning goal never crossed his mind yesterday.

The striker netted just after half-time to put Gers 3-2 in front, and that looked to be the clincher until Raith equalised deep into stoppage time.

Miller explained: “It’s a goal which was potentially going to be the winning goal in the game – it might go down as the goal which might have won the league but you don’t think of it like that.

“It’s all an accumulation of what has gone in over the season – all the hard work we have put in since day one when the manager came in.

“It would never be about any individual goal but, it is an opportunity now to move onto Tuesday and hopefully win it in front of our own fans, and again we would definitely have preferred to win it at home.”

On the goal itself, he added: “I made about three movements, so he could have passed that little bit earlier! But it was a great pass and perfectly weighted, so it was up to me to run on and put it in the goal, and fortunately enough I managed to do that.”

One thing that will have to improve and quickly is Rangers record at the back, having conceded three goals in each of their last three games.

Miller continued: “It’s one win in three, and nine goals conceded. We are really disappointed in that and it’s something we have prided ourselves on this season.

“Yes, we have had lots of good attacking play and have scored a lot of goals, but we have also kept that back door shut.”
