Miller is calling on departing Gers stars to show they still have fight

By Andy Newport

Kenny Miller has urged his Rangers team-mates to fight to the line even if their days at Ibrox are numbered.

Boss Pedro Caixinha is in the process of spelling out to his players which of them have a future with the club next season.

But the Portuguese still has three games to negotiate before the end of a season to forget, with a mounting injury list too.

And veteran frontman Miller admits his side cannot afford passengers as they gear up for today's clash with Hearts (12.15pm).

He said: "It comes down to the individual and your own pride. If you want to put the tools away and go on holiday you'll do that.

"If you want to stay and fight for the cause because it's your job and you have a personal pride, then you'll do that instead.

"I think that's just down to each character and I'm hoping that in our dressing room we have lads who are thinking, 'Let's just get to the end of the season, fight, work hard and get three wins'."

Rangers' injury concerns have deepened again with the news Danny Wilson will miss the remainder of the season with a knee problem.

The defender limped off against Partick Thistle last Sunday and will see a specialist early next week.
