Kenny Miller explains how Rangers must adjust transfer strategy after boardroom change | Football | Sport

Rangers announced on Monday that Ross Wilson has taken over from Mark Allen in the role of Sporting Director, and Kenny Miller is sure the transfer policy will have to change.

Miller, who played over 300 games for the Light Blues across three spells, has highlighted the amount of players that the club have brought over the past few seasons, and labelled it as unsustainable.

Miller told Sportsound: “There’s been a lot of players signed at Ibrox over the last couple of seasons and again, that’s not really sustainable.

“They will have to be a lot clearer with the players that they want, the profile of the players they want, and I can’t see them signing 12 to 15 players every summer.”

Rangers are currently two-points clear of Celtic at the top of the Scottish Premiership as their Old Firm rivals take a stumble, and Former Gers boss Alex McLeish has been full of praise for their manager.

“Steven [Gerrard] has done an amazing job. He’s got the gravitas and he’s a superb guy,” he told the Daily Record.

“You’d maybe think someone with such a huge, world-class reputation would come here and show an ego but no.

“He has been really humble, he has been brilliant in the Press and I really think this is the man Rangers needed.

“I would never criticise fellow managers but this guy is pretty special and you can see that he wants to have a really successful managerial career just by what he has done already.

“Yes, he still has to get that bit of silverware and he’s got to play a bit of catch-up in terms of cash.

“Celtic have spent their money well. They’ve also nurtured some really good young players and you have to give them credit for what they’ve done.

“But Rangers look like they are getting that confidence and Steven has given them a bit of steel again.”

“I saw that Old Firm game at the start of the season and everyone had high hopes.

“But Rangers are top of the league now and they have to prove they can go and beat Celtic.”

Next up for Rangers is a trip to play Hearts on Sunday (12.15pm), with Celtic hosting Ross County a day earlier (3pm).
