RANGERS' hopes of beating Kilmarnock tonight could depend on the future of Kenny Miller.
The Scotland striker has been a one-man goal machine this season with 22 goals so far but financial woes dictate he has to be sold this month instead of leaving for free at the end of the season.
Miller has turned down an offer from Birmingham but there's an improved contract on the table while Serie A side Fiorentina are ready to make a move.
If Miller isn't picked tonight the onus will fall on ex-Killie man Steven Naismith to score if he is passed fit after being out injured.
If neither Miller nor Naisy starts the price on Kilmarnock in this Scottish Cup fourth-round tie begins to look interesting.
It was 3-2 to Rangers when the sides met recently at Rugby Park but Killie played a major role in their own downfall by conceding two penalties and having a man sent off.
Mixu Paatelainen's men have won four of their last five and although Ibrox is always a difficult to place to visit they will fancy their chances of causing an upset or at least forcing a draw.
By kick-off striker Conor Sammon could be the top scorer currently playing in the SPL as his tally of 12 – 15 in all competitions – is second only to Miller.
Sammon netted the opener in that 3-2 defeat and also scored first at Parkhead in a recent 1-1 draw.
Sammon actually netted twice in that loss to Rangers and is 14-1 with William Hill to hit another double.
Naismith is 5-1 at Coral to score first and William Hill make him 11-10 to score at any time in a home win.
With Rangers so short all the value is on Killie and if Miller and possibly Naismith don't make it I'll be risking a small amount on the away.
I might have a dabble on Killie draw no bet at 6-1 with Chandler and Skybet while Killie plus two pays 10-11 with William Hill.
- Sammon to score
