183-goal Rangers star gives emphatic response on Celtic move ahead of Old-Firm clash
By Will Butcher
Rangers striker Kenny Miller believes that he “belongs” to the Gers after rejoining Mark Warburton’s side for the third time.
The 36-year-old striker, who has 183 career goals, was speaking ahead of the first Premiership Old-Firm encounter in four years as the Gers travel the short distance to Celtic Park on Saturday.
As quoted by Rangers official Twitter account, former Hoops striker Miller said that a move to Rangers’ arch enemies Celtic was the “right thing” for his career at the time, but is glad to have returned to “where he belongs”.
KM: I felt going to Celtic was the right thing for me at that time in my career. Fortunately though I managed to get back to where I belong.

The veteran striker, who has had spells with nine different clubs in Wales, Scotland, England, Turkey and America, played for the Hoops during the 2006/07 season before rejoining the Gers a year later.
Miller could be in line to start against Brendan Rodgers’ side, as attacking spearhead Martyn Waghorn continues to fight his way back to fitness from a hamstring injury.

Now in his third spell with the Gers, Miller has played an integral part in last season’s promotion back to the top flight of Scottish football.
The 70-time Scotland international has an impeccable goalscoring rate with Rangers, scoring an impressive 86 goals in 201 games, and would love to increase his tally on Saturday.
Rangers currently sit in second in the Scottish Premier League on eight points, just one point behind their rivals who have played one less game.
