KENNY MILLER reckons Rangers hit the performance heights once again tonight in the 3-1 victory over Morton.

Having been widely praised for their showing in last weekend’s 4-0 thrashing of Dundee in the Scottish Cup, Miller reckons the Light Blues carried that on into this evening’s match, although he conceded going a goal behind to the Greenock side against the run of play came as a major blow.

Speaking after the match to, the two-goal striker said: “It was a fantastic performance last week and we really just picked up from where we left off last week.

“There was loads of great play, chances created and great movement and passing too. There was a really good tempo, and any goal affects a team, but we said at half time we just had to get back to doing what we do, and in the second half you could see we got right back at it, scored some good goals and created more chances.”

Miller was denied a hat-trick tonight by the linesman’s offside flag as he turned a Dean Shiels effort that cannoned off the crossbar into the net in the second half.

That was just one of a number of opportunities Rangers squandered as they looked to add even more gloss to the scoreline, and while accepting Gers could have won by even more goals, Miller was just thrilled to secure another three points in the race for the Championship flag.

He continued: “We were disappointed to go 1-0 down considering I thought we started the game pretty well, and the goal affected us a little bit and our levels dropped.

“In the second half though, we picked it right back up again and you can see with the chances we have created and our level of play, it was a fantastic performance and we were worthy winners.

“You could say over the last couple of months that we maybe haven’t got the level of goals that our play deserved, but again, we are winning games of football at this stage of the season and it’s another game off the list, another three points in the bag and we move onto next week.”
