Kenny Miller Says Rangers Fans Would Rather Win the Premiership Title Instead of the Europa League

Kenny Miller Says Rangers Fans Would Rather Win the Premiership Title Instead of the Europa League

Kenny Miller has claimed Rangers fans would rather win this season’s Premiership title, rather than claiming continental glory in the Europa League.

Steven Gerrard’s Gers became the first team to make the Europa’s last-16 phase last night when they managed to see off Braga 1-0 in Portugal, claiming an impressive overall 4-2 aggregate victory.

However, with supporters now excitedly awaiting Friday’s draw, ex-Rangers and Celtic striker Miller reckons the bulk of the Ibrox fanbase would much rather stop their bitter rivals’ domestic dominance, rather than going all the way in the Europa League.

Speaking during an interview on talkSPORT earlier today, the former Scotland international explained: “I think everybody would know the answer to that.

“There’s no doubt the domestic scene is the bread and butter.

“It’s what means everything to Rangers and Celtic.

“The league is absolutely crucial when you start out at the start of the season.

“So there’s no doubt, if Rangers were to have the choice, you’d have the added bonus of obviously stopping nine in a row, but it would be winning that league back as well.

“Listen, Europe is a huge, huge benefit. It gives the fans a little distraction, it gives the players a little distraction from the domestic scene which is always so intense with that rivalry.

“You want a bit of everything but I think if you were to give Rangers supporters the choice, there’s no doubt it would be to win that first league in a number of years.”

We know it’s a completely hypothetical question, but what do you think of Miller comments in the wake of last night’s results?

And, Rangers fans, would you choose winning the league title over a first-ever Europa League crown at Gdansk’s showpiece final in May?
