Decision made: Rangers set to seal major deal before Celtic showdown - report
By Amir Mir
Rangers could seal a major deal before their clash against Celtic on Saturday by extending the contract of Kenny Miller, according to a report.
The Daily Record claim that the 37-year-old is set to commit his future to the club and will be offered a new agreement for next season by manager Pedro Caixinha.
The club’s veteran striker, who was recently named their Player of the Year, has a contract at Ibrox which is set to expire in the summer.
It is said talks of a new deal with Miller began last week after he impressed Caixinha with his leadership skills on and off the field.
The report also details how the Portuguese coach is committed to a radical overhaul of his first team squad and sees Miller as a key player in his future plans.

Over the course of the season, Miller has played 42 games in all competitions for the Gers, scoring 12 goals, including nine strikes in 32 league matches.
It is also said that the former Scotland striker could even put pen-to-paper before the final Old Firm clash of the season this Saturday.
Rangers were knocked out of the Scottish Cup semi-final last Sunday when Brendan Rodgers team beat them 2-0 at Hampden – their fourth win over their rivals this term.
The duo will clash once again at the weekend, this time at Ibrox, with Miller finding the back of the net the last time they met at the Gers’ home ground in December.
