Kenny Miller has officially joined Turkish club Bursaspor in a deal worth £500,000 for Rangers.

The 31-year old Scottish striker will earn £50,000 a week with Bursapor, who are currently sitting second on the Turkish Super Lig table.

The Scotland international has enjoyed a successful two-and-a-half-year stint at Ibrox, scoring 57 goals in 111 Scottish Premier League appearances, highlighted by 21 goals in 18 matches this season.

He said it was extremely tough walking away from Rangers but admitted he would be able to keep the great memories very close.

"The actual moment I said goodbye to everyone was hard. Walking away wasn't easy. It was quite emotional, he told SunSport.

"There's no doubt the two-and-a-half years I had at Rangers have been the best time of my career. Working with the gaffer Walter Smith, Coisty, Kenny, Durranty, big Jim, the physio and the doc was brilliant.

"But on Tuesday night things were developing and I realised I was on my way out of the club. All of a sudden it was difficult.

"I reported at Ibrox for the game with Inverness like all the other lads but the gaffer took me aside before he read out the team and we spoke about how close the deal was to happening.

"He shook me by the hand, wished me all the best and I went back down to say cheerio to everyone.

"But for that few minutes, standing in the gaffer's office, it was quite emotional.

"You always get nerves when you leave a club and you're thinking about what's ahead, but this was different.

"I really enjoyed my time there and walking away from that wasn't easy.

"As much as the decision itself wasn't hard, actually walking out the door was tough.

"It's crunch time when you're actually going around the dressing room shaking all the lads by the hand.

"These guys are my best mates and boys I've been through a lot with."
