McCall: Caixinha must do this with Rangers striker – it's a 'no-brainer'

By Will Butcher

Stuart McCall believes Rangers must hand Kenny Miller a new contract at Ibrox to keep him in Glasgow for another 12 months.

Miller, 37, is currently the Gers top scorer in the Scottish Premiership with nine strikes, scoring three times in his last two games, including a sublime brace against Aberdeen.

McCall, who is currently in charge of League One outfit Bradford City, told the Evening Times that if he was in charge of the Gers it would be a “no-brainer” to hand Miller a new deal.

“If you have looked after yourself, then 37 is just a number. If you have got the know-how that Kenny has got, for me it would be a no-brainer,” McCall said.

“I don’t know the philosophy and what the new manager might want. For myself, it would be a no-brainer. He has the know-how, the experience and he is probably in the running to be the Player of the Year for Rangers.

“I don’t know why there is a delay but I would get him signed up for his impact and help in and around the football club, as well as on the park.”

Rangers’ number nine has just over a month left on his deal with the 54-time Scottish champions.

Miller is in direct competition with the likes of Martyn Waghorn, Joe Dodoo and Joe Garner for a place in Pedro Caixinha’s starting eleven.

He is likely to start against former side Celtic on Sunday, as the Gers look to secure their first win in five attempts against Brendan Rodgers’ side in the semi-final of the Scottish Cup.
