Rangers managing director Stewart Robertson feels that veteran striker Kenny Miller has shown great desire to continue to be part of manager Mark Warburton's squad.

Miller, who is in his third spell as a player at Ibrox, put pen to paper on a one-year contract extension earlier this week, something which will keep him at the club until the summer of 2017.

The striker is also studying his coaching badges and helping out with Rangers' youth teams in addition to his first team duties and Miller has left Robertson impressed.

"Kenny’s desire to keep playing an important part in Mark’s team has been very impressive and his contribution to a successful spell so far this season has been significant", the managing director told Rangers' official site.

"In a period where Mark has added a number of younger players to his squad he has recognised the importance of Kenny’s experience around the squad as well as his performances on the pitch", Robertson continued.


"Having Kenny continue to be available for another year is great news for Mark and for the team and we are delighted that he has extended his contract until the end of next season.

"I know he will continue to be an important part of Mark’s plans for the remainder of that extended contract."

Miller has made a total of 201 appearances for the Gers over the course of his three spells, hitting the back of the net on 81 occasions.

This term the striker has continued to contribute on the pitch and has netted five goals in 13 games for the Gers, who sit on top of the Scottish Championship table and on course for promotion back to the Scottish Premiership.
