Mark Warburton should offer veteran forward Kenny Miller a new 12-month deal as he continues to shine for Rangers.

The 36-year-old has continued to defy the limitations of his age by starring as arguably Rangers most in-form striker. Playing from out wide, Miller has scored four goals and provided antoher four in assists.

With his current Gers deal set to expire in just over six months’ time, here are three reasons why Rangers should give him another year at Ibrox:

Leadership

With the likes of young forwards Barrie Mckay and Joe Dodoo coming through at Auchenhowie, Miller can act as a role model to the Gers younger attacking stars.

His presence in the side as one of the most recognisable faces in Scottish football is likely to be inspiring for the Gers youngsters.

With Miller in the side, the younger stars can learn from Miller and gain experience that could not be bought.

Lethal in front of goal

When given the chance, there are not many other strikers in Scottish football you would want to put away a chance.

Miller has played and scored goals in the Premiership with Wolves, the MLS with Vancouver Whitecaps and Turkey with Bursaspor.

His experience and ability to find the net in all sorts of different teams means he is still a valuable asset.

Coaching staff role

Having Miller in the Rangers squad for a prolonged period could allow him to get his coaching badges and move into the Gers’ coaching staff.

With the experience that Miller can offer in both a playing and coaching regard, it would be foolish to let him go.

A 12-month deal would be the perfect solution for all parties, as time begins to count down.
