Rangers or Celtic? There’s only one team in the SPFL title race for Kenny Miller

KENNY MILLER is sure Rangers are going to be champions again.

The ex-Gers hitman — a title winner with both Old Firm clubs — has felt good about the Ibrox side’s chances since they beat Aberdeen in early February.

Miller said: “I fancy Rangers to win the title. I was at the Rangers v Aberdeen game a few weeks ago and there was a real feel-good factor in the stadium that night.

“The game was 1-1 with 25 minutes to go. I’ve played in those situations, and you can feel the anxiety and the pressure from the stands because they expect you to be winning at every stage of every game.

“However, that night there was a real belief in the supporters and an air of confidence that the team would get the job done — which they did.

“I think that air of confidence feeds into the players and they’ve pretty much won every game under Philippe Clement.

“They’ve got the game in hand, which they will feel confident of winning, and there are only nine games to go.

“It definitely makes you the favourites, but the Old Firm derby will be absolutely crucial.

“Celtic will have to attack Rangers as a draw should be enough to keep it in their own hands depending on how fixtures go between now and then.”

Miller, meanwhile, has high hopes for Scotland at Euro 2024 and hopes they can deliver in Friday night’s friendly against the Netherlands in Amsterdam.

Miller, who scored 18 goals in 69 Scotland appearances, added: “I thought we were excellent against Spain, home and away. The lads work incredibly hard, and they’ve grown together as a group under Steve Clarke.

“They’re in a good place ahead of the Euros. It’ll be a tough game in the Netherlands, even though it’s a friendly.

“It will be a real test which they do need to prepare for the Euros.
“Are we going to be able to kind of compete at that level? I believe
we can, I genuinely do.

“I think we have a wonderful group of players. There’s a good spirit and there’s a good manager who has found a way to get his players
playing to their strengths and fit them in.

“There is great competition for places and a lot of useful pieces to fit into the puzzle to allow Scotland to go and compete as a team.

“As for Northern Ireland, I think that’s a game that we need to be looking to get back to winning ways and rebuilding the momentum
that we’ve had over the last few years.”
