Kenny Miller fears club will want to sell him

KENNY Miller has admitted he harbours doubt over his future at Rangers amid the financial confusion currently surrounding the Ibrox club.

The Scotland striker is one of eight members of the Rangers first-team squad whose existing contracts have just one more season to run. Miller, along with Neil Alexander, Danny Wilson, Sasa Papac, Lee McCulloch, Kevin Thomson, Andrius Velicka and Andrew Little will be free to talk to other clubs in January.

The immediate concern of Rangers manager Walter Smith, as he seeks clarity over the future direction of the up for sale club, is the fate of the six players who are out of contract in June – Kris Boyd, David Weir, Nacho Novo, Kirk Broadfoot, DaMarcus Beasley and Steven Smith.

But, as Miller observed yesterday, even those with another season remaining could find themselves as candidates to move on if Rangers decide to try and cash in on them rather than let their contracts run down.

"There is definitely that side of it to think about," said Miller. "There is that uncertainty, possibly in the summer. Does somebody come in for you or are you going to be told that it's time to go so they can get a little bit of money for you?

"I would love to stay here. I've got a year left and in normal circumstances, if a club is happy with a player and the player is happy with the club, you would be talking about signing a new deal. I would love to have that opportunity to extend my stay.

"I don't know the ins and outs of any of the off the field stuff going on at the club. Until somebody comes in and says 'Right Kenny, someone wants to buy you and we are willing to let you go', then it doesn't affect me. I came to Rangers to work under Walter Smith and his staff and I do feel settled here. I'm enjoying my football and we have been successful. But until I am told these things are on the table, I can't really make any decisions."
