Jamie Barjonas believes that Kenny Miller is the greatest role model to the Rangers youngsters.
The 18-year-old was handed his first senior appearance for the Light Blues in the dramatic 2-1 win at Partick on Sunday.
Barjonas also revealed that Miller is keen on helping the younger members of the Gers squad in their training by taking extra measures to give them guidance.
Answering a question in a ‘Q&A’ session on the official Rangers Youth Development Twitter page which asked which player has had the biggest influence on his career at Ibrox, Barjonas replied: “Kenny Miller. He is always there to help and answer questions. Also helps with the Under-20s on days off – great role model.”

Miller, 37, is easily one of the most experienced players in the Ranger first team having made 237 appearances for the club and scoring 97 goals in three different spells.
He is also the club’s top scorer this season by netting 13 goals in 44 matches and also supplying seven assists in all competitions.
Four of Miller’s goals have come in his last four league appearances for the Light Blues but his goal in the Old Firm derby with Celtic was nothing but a mere consolation in a 5-1 defeat.
The 70-times Scotland international has also won almost all there is to win in his home nation with both Rangers and the Bhoys.
