Miller aiming to peak at Rangers

Rangers striker Kenny Miller
Miller believes his best form is yet to come

Kenny Miller is confident Rangers manager Walter Smith can get the best out of him.

The Scotland striker enjoyed playing under Smith at international level and aims to rediscover that form in his second spell at Ibrox.

"I feel the best place to hit my peak is here because of the management team," the 28-year-old former Celtic forward told Rangers News.

"You are always trying to improve and I feel there is more from me to come."

Miller, who has scored 11 goals in 37 appearances for Scotland, moved back to Rangers this summer in a £2m transfer from Derby County.

"In the national team when Walter Smith came in, I felt my game went to a different level," added the striker.

"I really got on well with him, Ally McCoist and Tommy Burns and it rubbed off on the way I started to play.

"You always want to do well, but I had that extra desire because of the faith and belief that was shown in me by these men."

Meanwhile, former Rangers boss Dick Advocaat insists that Miller will shine second time around - even though it was he who offloaded the player seven years ago.

Advocaat signed Miller from Hibernian in June 2000 on a five-year contract, for a fee of £2m. However, the striker moved to Wolves the following season after failing to pin down a first-team place.

But the Zenit St Petersburg boss said: "Miller is a different player now from when he was at Ibrox the first time.

"I signed him from Hibs when he was young, but there was too much competition for him at the time.

"He is more experienced now, he has done well for the national team and he is a very strong player.

"He will be a good player for Rangers."
