Kenny Miller voices fears over Rangers' inconsistency

By Ronnie Esplin

Kenny Miller fears Rangers' promotion bid could be derailed by the Ibrox side's rollercoaster run of form.

Gers suffered the first defeat of Stuart McCall's six-game reign on Thursday night as they slumped 3-0 at Queen of the South.

It was an especially flat display after the high of recent Scottish Championship victories over Hearts and Hibernian.

The Light Blues - who remain behind the Easter Road side in third place on goal difference - now have five games left, starting with Raith tomorrow, to leapfrog Hibs and spare themselves the effort of playing two extra ties in the play-offs.

And the worry for striker Miller is that Gers' lack of consistency could wreck their chance of a Premiership return.

The 35-year-old said: "Last night was a reminder that we have not turned the corner and that there's a lot of hard work still to be done. It was a performance that summed up our season a little bit.

"We seem to have a couple of good performances and then complacency kicks in. Might this inconsistency come back to haunt us in the play-offs? It could do, yes.

"We need to get back to where we were at against Hibs and Hearts, where we were superb."
