Match Preview

Killie in the clear Kilmarnock manager Mixu Paatelainen has no fresh injury concerns ahead of their Clydesdale Bank Premier League game against Rangers. Goalkeeper Alan Combe has returned to full training after double hernia surgery but no date has been set for his return to action. Long-term absentee James Dayton remains on the sidelines with a cruciate ligament injury. Kilmarnock are unbeaten in their last four outings and, having watched Inverness and Hibernian take points from the Scottish champions in recent week, Craig Bryson knows they are far from invincible. He said: "Everybody has been inspired by the Hibs result and it shows that, on your day, anybody can beat any team in the league. "If we play the way we can play - and the way we have been playing - hopefully we can get a positive result." Rangers host Manchester United in the Champions League on Wednesday but Bryson does not believe Walter Smith's men will have one eye on that game when they travel to Rugby Park. He said: "I think they will be professional. Rangers want to win the league as well so I think they will want to get through this game first before they think about Manchester United. "They've had quite a few midweek games and hopefully fitness will be an issue but they've got quality players so we will just concentrate on ourselves and hopefully we will be okay." Rangers will have Salim Kerkar in their squad after the French-Algerian was granted international clearance. But Sasa Papac (head), Madjid Bougherra (hamstring) and Maurice Edu (knee) are out with the latter two definitely sidelined for Wednesday`s Champions League clash against Manchester United too. Steven Naismith, Steven Whittaker, Kirk Broadfoot, Kyle Lafferty and Steven Davis are all available despite being forced out of international action in midweek. On-loan Aberdeen player Richard Foster comes back into contention after missing the game against his parent club while James Beattie, Nikica Jelavic and Andy Webster remain on the sidelines. Reflecting on Rangers' injury worries, boss Walter Smith said: "It's not a situation that we would say we fear as such but we have been wary of this situation and I did say that injury could affect our circumstances. "We've got six out and we could be doing without it but we had roughly the same out last week and we handled it very well against Aberdeen. "Hopefully we can do it again against a club who are doing extremely well at the moment."

Match Report

Miller time for Gers Kenny Miller claimed a hat-trick against 10-man Kilmarnock as Rangers fought back from behind to claim a 3-2 victory in the Clydesdale Bank Premier League. The striker converted twice from the penalty spot before grabbing the winner, with Connor Sammon netting a brace for an impressive Killie side, who had Mohamadou Sissoko sent-off for conceding both spot-kicks. The victory allowed the Scottish champions to move four points clear at the top of the SPL ahead of Celtic's meeting with Dundee United later in the day. Rangers made two changes from the side who defeated Aberdeen. Madjid Bougherra was out with a hamstring injury, while Vladimir Weiss dropped to the bench. Kyle Lafferty and Richard Foster were both drafted into the team. Kilmarnock were unchanged. The home side could have opened the scoring after just two minutes when Alexei Eremenko released Sammon into the box and he found himself with only Allan McGregor to beat but the goalkeeper raced off his line and did well to block. Killie still looked dangerous and a thunderous shot from Eremenko was forced out of play by an alert McGregor. The breakthrough came after 21 minutes when Eremenko's chip found Liam Kelly at the back post and he cut back for Sammon to bundle home from close range. Kilmarnock pushed forward in search of a second goal and Mehdi Taouil was allowed to surge unchallenged into the box only to see his poor effort comfortably smothered by McGregor. Rangers were back on level terms when referee Euan Norris pointed to the penalty spot after 41 minutes for a Sissoko trip on Miller. The striker brushed himself off to take the spot-kick himself and confidently dispatched into the back of the net from 12 yards, after seeing his penalty saved last week. Despite the setback of losing a goal late in the first half, Kilmarnock looked lively when they emerged for the restart and were quickly causing more problems for their visitors. Craig Bryson tried to set up Sammon inside the six-yard box but the effort caught under the body of McGregor and Foster reacted first to hook to safety off the line as the goalkeeper tried to recover. But the Rugby Park side were left reeling when they conceded a second penalty after 54 minutes, this time for a Sissoko foul on Lafferty. The Killie player picked up a second yellow card before Miller lashed high into the net from the spot once again to hand Rangers the advantage. The striker then spurned a great opportunity to claim his hat-trick when his shot fizzed across the face of goal and wide with the gaping net at his mercy. The Ibrox side were left rueing that miss when Kilmarnock equalised after 59 minutes. Jamie Hamill whipped a great ball from the right into the box where Sammon was waiting at the back post to rifle home and claim a double. But, in another twist, Rangers restored their lead just four minutes later when Miller had the net bulging again, this time from open play when he collected a Steven Whittaker cross in plenty of space and rifled past goalkeeper Cammy Bell. Rangers were under pressure when Killie won a free-kick 25 yards out with five minutes remaining but were able to breathe a sigh of relief when Hamill screwed just wide of target. Miller then had the opportunity to put the game beyond their hosts for Rangers when he bore down on goal only to see his point-blank effort blocked by Bell. In the end, the Scottish champions were able to hold on for the win, and put some pressure on rivals Celtic, despite the best efforts of Kilmarnock.
