Ex-Rangers striker Miller: Strachan can transform Scotland just like Walter Smith

Kenny Miller is of the belief that Gordon Strachan is the right man to get the most out of the Scotland national team.

The Scottish players trained under Strachan this week for the first time since he took the reins last month and Vancouver Whitecaps striker Miller feels he could bring a similar spirit to the team just like his former Rangers boss Walter Smith had a knack of doing.

“Gordon can get more from the players — that’s exactly what Walter did,” he said ahead of Wednesday’s friendly with Estonia.

“He came in and it was the same group who were under-achieving and whether it was down to tactics or his man- management, every single player got a lift.

“I’m sure Gordon would love to see the same response. There’s no reason why he can’t.

“Credit to Craig Levein — he put plans into place with the youth set-up which will be good in the future.

“But in the short term we have to go to Serbia next month. We can’t go into those games expecting to get beaten.

“Our aim will be to win those games.

“If we do that, you never know. We could be back in the shake-up and there might be a bit of light in this campaign yet.”
