Rangers: Miller signs new one-year deal

Rangers striker Kenny Miller has signed a new one-year deal at the club until the summer of 2017.

The 35-year-old has been given a playing contract but will also be involved in helping the Under 20s out with manager Ian Durrant.

Miller, whose initial contract ran out next summer, has scored five goals in 13 appearances for Mark Warburton’s men this season.

The Rangers boss told the official club’s website: This is a playing contract.

“Kenny is doing his coaching qualifications and doing great work with our under-20s and gaining invaluable experience but have no doubts, Kenny has earned this contract from a playing perspective.

“From the first day of pre-season he developed a real desire and a passion to help take the club forward and he’s made a very positive contribution both on and off the pitch.

“His seniority within the squad is very important, his knowledge and his experience are special when we have such a young squad and have recruited young players and have taken in young loan players too.

“The experience of the likes of Kenny, Dean Shiels and Lee Wallace, as captain of course, is invaluable.

“So he has a key role to play on and off the pitch and I am delighted to have Kenny accept this new contract offer.

“David and I are thrilled to have him commit to the club for another year and I hope very much that Kenny feels a bit part of what we’re doing going forward.”
