LEIGH GRIFFITHS has expressed surprise that Kenny Miller is poised to be allowed to quit The Rangers for good next month.
The 37-year-old former Celtic striker netted twice in the Ibrox side’s 3-0 win over Aberdeen at Pittodrie last Sunday – and admitted afterwards he had been given no indication from manager Pedro Caixinha that his contract will be extended beyond this season.
And Griffiths believes the veteran’s form is such that he’s entitled to feel aggrieved the Portuguese coach appears to be calling time on his third spell at the Govan outfit.
The Celtic hitman said: “People are surprised Kenny is still doing it at this age.
“But I’m sure he looks after himself well off the pitch and he showed how vital he can be as a team player. He’s still going strong and banging in the goals at the age he is.
“It’s staggering, the amount of goals he’s scored and the chances he’s created. He’s only got a few games left to define the season and anybody else who’s in his position would effectively be demanding a new contract.
“But I think he’s got to prove himself to the new manager, what he can do and bring to the team.
“If the manager looks over the whole season, he’ll see he deserves a new contract.”
