KENNY Miller says he wishes Rangers had the opportunity to get back playing tomorrow after Old Firm defeat as the team enter a three week winter break.

The Light Blues will have to wait until January 21 until they play again and January 28 to get back to league action.

The striker hopes that when the squad return it will be having learnt important lessons from their 2-1 loss to Celtic, in a game which Miller thinks saw the Gers draw closer to their city rivals in terms of quality.

He told RangersTV:

“It is disappointing the break comes now off the back of a draw on Wednesday and an Old Firm defeat, which is never nice.

“You always want to get on with the next game and get that next three points but we have to wait now.

“We have to learn from that, I thought we were definitely better today, closer to them in regards to how they were playing and the opportunities that were created it could have been 4-4.

“We have lost the game and there is no getting away from that, it is an Old Firm we have lost and we have to look at it, get better and for me it was a better performance but the result is still disappointing.”

Miller grabbed the opening goal of the game when he tapped past Craig Gordon with 13 minutes gone and he felt his team were more than in control of the game at that point.

Goals from Moussa Dembele and Scott Sinclair saw Celtic win a game that the Gers forward believed was equally matched in the end.

He continued: “You never feel comfy in these games, particularly against a team like Celtic when they have the quality that they have.

“I felt in the first-half we got the goal at a great time and at that time I was thinking we can go and get a second here.

“We were dealing with the threat pretty well and again it was disappointing to concede that goal, it may be knocked us a bit and the game became more 50/50 after that.

“The second-half was end-to-end stuff, they had chances, we had chances and they took one and we never – that was the difference today.”
