Miller turns focus to SPL

Published Add your comment

Kenny Miller has told Rangers to put their disappointing Champions League campaign behind them and focus on winning the Clydesdale Bank Premier League in a bid to have another crack at Europe next year.

The Scottish champions went down 1-0 against Sevilla in their final Group G game to end their European season without a win, having garnered just two points from their previous matches.

"We have to put Europe to the back of our minds now. We knew the game never meant anything so we tried to come across to nick a result," said Miller.

"We were under pressure for long spells. We could have nicked a point at the end but it wasn't to be. We just have to write it off and move on and hopefully win the league again and make sure we're here again next year.

"We have to forget about Europe now, because we're out of it. We can't let it linger. We knew what the game was all about, it was about hopefully salvaging a bit of pride.

"If we could get a result, great. If not, we've got a hard month coming up with five or six games over the next five weeks or so.

"They'll be tough ones but if we come out of them with a lot of points then we're going to be in a right good position to win the league again."
