THE Gers boss believes Kenny Miller’s 100th Rangers goal marks how important the club’s contingent of senior players are.

Miller’s stunning volley gave him a ton of goals for the Ibrox men and Mark Warburton says it’s more than just his goals which impact the team.

The strike came midway through the first-half and set Rangers on their way to an important away win over Inverness.

Warburton said:

“Wasn’t bad for a 100th goal was it!

“It’s a significant milestone for Kenny, it is testament to his approach, the way he looks after himself, the mentoring role he has on and off the field with the younger players and the older ones.

“I have spoken many times about Kenny, Lee, Niko, Gilksy and Clint Hill and those types of players – yes they add value on the field but their value off the field in the dressing room is very significant.

“We moved it well before we scored, we had some chances and we were using the flanks very well.

“We felt we could expose them on the flanks and Barrie and Kenny and the movement from Waggy was very pleasing.

“Niko, Holty and Andy in midfield were dictating tonight too and the rotation was good and we created the overloads.

“We could talk about it and analysis it to death and we will do next week but tonight was very good.”

Rangers’ have a week off league duties as their next game is the small matter of a League Cup semi-final clash with Celtic at Hampden Park.

Warburton explained: “It is a big game next weekend but the focus was always tonight and what we have to do now is give the boys a couple of days off, which they have well deserved.

“They will train in the morning, recover and then have Sunday and Monday off then we’ll look forward to next week’s semi-final.”
