KENNY MILLER hopes Rangers can use their cup success as a springboard for a Championship triumph as Mark Warburton’s side look to pull clear at the top of the table tomorrow night.

The Light Blues booked their place in the Petrofac Training Cup final against Peterhead with a 4-0 win over St Mirren at Ibrox on Saturday.

Now attentions have turned to the visit of Dumbarton as Rangers play their game in hand over title rivals Hibernian and bid to move three points in front of Alan Stubbs’ side.

And Miller knows it is a chance the Gers must make the most of after seeing their advantage eroded over the last couple of weeks by their Capital counterparts.

He said: “It is vital, it is absolutely vital. That is Saturday’s performance and result out of the way and the cup final place booked so now we can look towards Tuesday night and making sure we get the win again in front of the home crowd.

“We want to put on a performance, get a convincing win and put that bit of daylight at the top of the league again.

“We go into each game as it comes and look to win it. We said the same thing going into the Livingston game last weekend but it wasn’t to be on the day.

“We need to make sure that is put right on Tuesday and we get that three point gap open again.

“We want to win them all obviously and if you look at the games we have dropped points in, we were disappointed. But it is not a bad return and it is a good run of form.

“We have twelve wins, one loss and one draw. That is good form, as much as we want to win every game.

“It is important we move onto Tuesday, make sure we get the three points and open up a gap at the top.”

After Jason Holt had put Rangers ahead in the first half, Miller got back on the score sheet before a Martyn Waghorn effort and Sean Kelly own goal clinched a comfortable win.

And the striker was pleased their possession and patience paid off as Warburton’s side bounced back from their Livi blip.

Miller said: “We go into every game looking to win it and we want to win well. Last week, it never went that way but we are not going to score three or four goals every week.

“If you look at the performances, we dominate possession, we have the chances and, on that day, it never quite went for us.

“Sometimes it will take us until the last 10, 15 minutes to break teams down and we have shown what we are capable of when we break teams down, when we get the chances and we are a bit more clinical in the final third.”
