Chris Sutton believes that it would be ridiculous if Rangers don’t offer a new deal to striker Kenny Miller.
The 37-year-old’s Ibrox contract expires at the end of the season and Sutton was responding to a story in the Daily Record in which Pedro Caixinha remained tight-lipped about extending his stay.
Miller, who is a key player for Rangers, was in hot form on Saturday as he struck two late goals to help his side beat second-placed Aberdeen at Pittodrie.
The ex-Scotland international is currently in his third spell with Rangers and has struck 11 goals in all competitions for the club this season.
His goals against the Dons were his first since February but Sutton, an ex-Celtic striker, believes that the club have to offer him a new deal.
“It would be ridiculous for Miller not to be offered a deal….Still a huge influence,” said Sutton on his personal Twitter account.

Miller also had a season-long stay at Celtic which wasn’t met with much success.
However over his various stays with the blue half of Glasgow, the veteran has won three Scottish Premiership titles, a Scottish Cup and a Scottish League Cup.
His long career has seen him turn out for a number of different clubs including Hibernian, Wolves, Derby, Cardiff and MLS outfit Vancouver Whitecaps.
Miller has scored a total of 95 goals for Gers in all competitions and will be hoping to reach the 100-mark before the end of the campaign.
