KENNY MILLER has finished the league season with twenty goals after his strike against the Buddies yesterday and Mark Warburton thinks there’s still more to come from his striker.
Former Scotland international Miller scored the equalising goal for Rangers yesterday to even up the scoring at one apiece after Calum Gallagher had opened the scoring for Alex Rae’s men.
With the striker signing a deal that will see him at the Light Blues until the end of next summer back in November, Warburton fully expects the experience and ability of Miller to keep being important for his squad both on and off the pitch.
Speaking after the match yesterday, the Rangers manager said that if his assistant is anything to go by, he still has half a decade of work to come from his influential striker.
He said: “David Weir played until he is forty-one, so Kenny has a good five years left to go on that basis.
“Kenny works hard every day and we say that a lot, perhaps some people ignore that. He’s the best that he can be every single day, so you have to respect him for that.”
Miller has been working alongside Ian Durrant with the Gers under-20’s this season when it’s been possible with first team commitments and Warburton is delighted with the professionalism that he has shown on the pitch and off it.
He continued: “The way that he looks after himself, his diet, his rest and recovery, his hydration, he is a top class professional.
“At thirty-six years of age he looks young and he looks fit, so I am delighted for Kenny. As long as he can keep playing at that level, we’ll have no problem at all.”
