MARK WARBURTON praised Kenny Miller after the striker scored two excellent goals against Morton as part of his man of the match display.

The former Scotland star enjoyed a great evening’s work as the Light Blues secured three valuable points at Ibrox, albeit he had to go off late in the game with a tight hamstring.

His first goal on 43 minutes, Rangers’ equaliser on the night, was a stunning header from James Tavernier’s corner which flew past Derek Gaston in Morton’s goal.

If that was good his second three minutes was arguably even better as he curled Jason Holt’s assist high into the net with a left-foot finish which gave the keeper no chance.

Warburton has often praised Miller contribution this season and he was more than happy to do the same when he spoke to RangersTV post-match tonight.

On Kenny’s first goal, he said: “It was a tremendous goal, tremendous timing and great technique, so delighted for Kenny.

“We knew at half time what we had to do, we had to step up a couple of gears and we did that.

“It was two tremendous finishes [from Kenny] and Lee Wallace’s as well, great composure, another goal for him so all credit to the team.”

With Martyn Waghorn currently injured Miller’s goals could prove vital in the title run-in, but Warburton insists the 36-year-old adds so much more to the squad than just his ability to find the net.

He added: “What Kenny brings, what Lee [Wallace] brings and Dean Shiels, they bring maturity, seniority, experience and they have that mentoring role which is so important.

“It can be overlooked but for me, and I look at Lee and Kenny and Dean, the way they look after themselves is a great example as role models.

“The way they conduct themselves, the way they talk, the way they train every single day; they are tremendous role models and the young ones can learn from that.

“So it’s a hugely important role they play and I’m delighted to have them on board.”
