Rangers senior player must quit in summer, it makes perfect sense


Veteran Rangers striker Kenny Miller is out of contract in the summer and after falling down the pecking order may feel it is coming close to the time for him to hang up his boots.

If Miller does decide to call time on his playing career, the striker should be given a role within the club’s Academy to work with the young talent coming through the ranks and pass on his vast experience.

A number of former Rangers players have been added to the coaching staff at Auchenhowie in recent months with Peter Lovenkrands, Kevin Thomson, Andy Little, Stephen Wright and Brian Gilmour among those working with various age groups.

Miller spent the second-half of last season assisting with the Under-20’s as he worked towards his coaching badges and seemed to work well with the Gers kids and coaching staff.

After a career which has saw him play in Scotland, England, Turkey and North America, Miller has a wealth of knowledge which would be helpful to pass on and improve the club’s youngsters.

The 38-year-old senior player is also renowned for his hard-work and professionalism which should hopefully run off on some of the players coming through and open their eyes to the determination needed to make it to the top.

The former Scotland international might still think he has something left to give as a player but if he decides to bring the curtain down on his glittering playing career then director of football Mark Allen should do what he can to keep him with the Gers.
