By Will Butcher
Celtic fans have ridiculed Rangers on Twitter after hearing that Kenny Miller will be offered a new deal to stay with Pedro Caixinha’s side.
The Daily Record claim that the veteran striker will be offered a new deal to remain at Ibrox for the 2017-18 season, with his current deal set to expire in just over a month’s time.
Miller is Ranger’s top scorer in the Scottish Premiership this season, with nine goals.
The 37-year-old, who played for Celtic for a year in 2006-07, has featured in all five encounters against the Gers’ Old Firm rivals this season and is expected to start on Saturday as the two sides do battle for a sixth time.
Celtic fans have mocked their bitter rivals on Twitter after hearing of a potential new deal for the journeyman striker.

In all competitions, Miller has struck 12 times as well as providing six assists in his 41 outings as the Gers remain 34 points behind Celtic at the top of the Scottish Premiership.
Miller will be hoping to play a part in helping his side end a dismal run of four losses and a draw against Celtic on Saturday, as the two meet at Ibrox.
