KENNY THRILLER; Miller's treble thriller.

Andrew McInnes Rangers striker Kenny Miller bagged his first hat-trick for the club in over five years.

But he didn't dwell long on the fact he's now the OLDEST player in the club's history to have scored a treble.

Miller's hat-trick came in Gers' 6-0 rout of Dumbarton |TURN TO PAGE 69 yesterday. Martyn Waghorn, Andy Halliday and James Tavernier were also among the goals. Former Scotland hitman Miller, who took his tally for the season to 10, said: "That was a brilliant start to the New Year. After beating Hibs last week it was important to follow that with a big win and a good performance - and we got both out there.

"Maybe I am the oldestever hat-trick scorer for Rangers but it's not a great feat to be honest - being the oldest in the team. "No, it's just brilliant to get on the scoresheet. "I still take great pride in leaving with the match ball. A striker wants to score as often as they can so a hat-trick is special. "I got five or six career hat-tricks now.

"This is my first for Gers since November 2010 when I got three at Kilmarnock in a 3-2 victory. "But we set our stall out right from the start and were happy with how we played. We kept probing and asking questions. "In terms of the service to the forwards, we said at halftime maybe we should put more balls into the box.

"At the first opportunity, Tav put one right on my head. It's no surprise. "If we make the runs and find the space then we have players who will find us." Miller knows boss Mark Warburton could seek to strengthen his forward line this month. But he said: "If we keep going the way we are, new lads will find it hard to get into the team. "The lads who have the jersey will be out to keep it but new players will keep them on their toes."
