Graeme Murty confirms huge boost for Rangers ahead of clash v Partick
Rangers boss Graeme Murty has today confirmed that Kenny Miller has returned to full fitness following his hamstring injury sustained just before Christmas.
It was reported at the time of the injury that Murty expected Miller to miss ‘significant time’ following the rupture of his hamstring.
However, speaking in a press conference today, as quoted by the Gers official Twitter account, Murty confirmed that the former Scotland international is in the matchday squad for tomorrow’s fixture:
????GM: Kenny is back in the squad tomorrow and is available for selection. We have to make sure we utilise the squad well.

Miller hasn’t played any football for Rangers since the 13th of December 2017, where Murty’s men beat Hibernian 2-1, although the former Wolves striker was not on the score sheet that day.
Having Miller’s experience back in the squad is a huge boost for Rangers, as the added competition for match day spaces will increase the desire to perform well in both training and matches.
Murty could have done with the 38-year-old last weekend, as the Gers fell 2-1 to Hibs in a crucial Scottish Premier League matchup, although at his age, ensuring his fitness comes as a priority.
Miller’s first chance of game action since december could be tomorrow, as the Rangers travel to 10th placed Partick Thistle in what looks like a must win game.
