KENNY Miller says his secret to still scoring at 37-years-old is enjoying his football – the striker netted a late double to fire Rangers through to the next round of the Scottish Cup.
The Gers 2-1 win over Motherwell came thanks to two goals from Miller, his first a header in the 84th minute and his second a cool finish in the 89th minute.
Miller shows no signs of stopping and he praised Martyn Waghorn and debutant Emerson Hyndman for their impressive assists which allowed him to seal the victory.
Speaking to Rangers TV Miller said: “I feel good, I am getting a lot of game time which is great and I feel fit. I am looking forward to kicking on and playing as long as I can.
“I think it is down to the regime, I am looked after well with the physios and the masseur and the gaffer knows when to take me out and when to play me.
“I am enjoying the football which is the most important thing, when you turn up to work every day and you are enjoying yourself then it is a lot easier than if you’re not playing and it is a grind.
“It is a pleasure to come into work at the training ground every day and working with the manager, Davie and the players is great so long may it continue.
“Waggy’s was a fantastic cross, it was probably the only time a cross went into an area which was directed towards the goal which is hard to defend.
“The keeper was in a bit of no man’s land and fortunately enough I managed to stretch and get the last half inch of the top of my head onto it.
“It was a great pass from Emo as well, it was good play because I think Josh closed down in the middle of the park a couple of times so he got a wee break and I ended up in front of Emo.
“It was a great pass, great weight and it was up to me to go and put it away and thankfully it went that way.”
Rangers struggled to make clear cut chances against a resolute ‘Well side but Miller thinks it was the Light Blues determination which saw them grind down Mark McGhee’s team.
He continued: “I thought we did threaten, we can be better, there is no doubt about that and we can take a little bit more care.
“We knew if we played the way we played our game we’d be okay, we were hammering away and I thought Barrie on the left again was outstanding and Mikey on the right was a threat as well, as was Waggy when he came on.
“When you play against a team who are defending for their life with eight or nine bodies in and around the box then it is hard to break them down.
“We have always said that if we keep going then we will maybe see these gaps open up a little bit towards the end of the game, which they did.”
