'A credit to his profession': Colgan delivers verdict on Rangers attacker
By Matt Farr
Nick Colgan believes Rangers striker Kenny Miller is far from finished at the top level as his contract with the club runs down.
Miller, 37, is out of contract at the end of the season, but Colgan believes a host of top clubs will be queuing up for his signature if he is not offered an extended stay at Ibrox.
The Rangers attacker is a proven goalscorer in the Scottish top flight, and although his prolific days are behind him, can still net important goals for the club.
He has netted 11 goals from 40 appearances in all competitions this term, but Rangers could be without their top goalscorer next season if Pedro Caixinha does not open contract negotiations the coming weeks.
In a glowing verdict of the veteran’s talents, Colgan branded Miller as ‘a credit to his profession’, having briefly played alongside him at Hibernian.

He told the Scottish Sun: “He still has a few years left in his career but he will be remembered in Scottish football as a striker who was very good at his job.
“He’s a credit to his profession and I don’t look at him and think he’s winding down his career. If Rangers don’t offer him a new contract, you can guarantee that there will be plenty of clubs out there trying to sign him.
“Kenny would be an asset to any club. At his age he might not start every game, but as he’s shown for Rangers this season, he’s still a man for the big occasion.”
Miller arrived at Ibrox in June 2014 initially on a one-year deal, for what was his third spell at the Glasgow club, and across his three spells, he has contributed 95 goals and 51 assists.
The well-travelled Scotland international has also turned out for Old Firm rivals Celtic, as well as experiencing the English Premier League with Wolves and Derby.
But a brief stint in Turkey with Bursaspor during the 2010-11 season suggests that the world will be his oyster if he were to be made available at the end of the current campaign.
