Rangers' Kenny Miller has no desire to exact revenge for play-off agony

Stepping up: Kenny Miller

Kenny Miller is not thinking about avenging play-off defeat to Motherwell when Rangers kick off their season at Fir Park.

Rangers begin their Betfred Cup campaign at the venue where they were consigned to another 12 months in the Championship in May 2015, following a 6-1 aggregate loss to Well.

Miller is one of only four players who featured against Motherwell that will belatedly make the step up to the Ladbrokes Premiership, along with skipper Lee Wallace and the young pair of Tom Walsh and Andy Murdoch, who were both loaned out last season. And the former Scotland forward believes Rangers have moved on to such an extent that there is no benefit in using their trip to Motherwell to prove a point.

When asked if the play-off was in his mind, Miller said: "It's not at all. That was two years ago now. Everything last year was about forgetting what went on before and really looking forward.

"We have a new team, new staff, new manager, new coaches in place. We wanted to turn a new page and we did that last year.

"We had a great year and for us we are looking to build on that and get better and get more consistent. We will have to be because the challenge is greater this year."
