Rangers striker Kenny Miller insists he wants to stay at the club despite speculation he could leave in the January transfer window.
The 30-year-old Scotland international has been in fine form for the Gers so far this season and has netted 18 goals in 14 SPL appearances.
But Miller's contract is set to expire next summer and the Ibrox outfit have yet to agree new terms with the former Celtic man.
Miller played for the Hoops in the 2006/07 campaign but is now a fully-fledged Rangers man and he is keen to stay beyond the winter, although he admits there is some uncertainty.
He told the Daily Record: "I've always said I want to stay. There's no doubt it's been the best two-and-a-half years of my career. Working with the manager and the staff has been great. We've been really successful in hard times.
"It's been the most turbulent time the club has seen with the debt, but I've loved it.
"When I came back Celtic had won three-in-a-row and playing a part in winning the title back was top of the agenda. There was probably no better way to do that than winning it on the last day of the season - much as we enjoyed winning it with games to spare last time - but it was a fantastic way to win the league.
"Had things not gone to plan on the field it might have gone against me because of the opposition to me coming back. But the team has been successful and that's gone a long way to the fans accepting me back again.
"If a new owner comes in it could change my situation but the days of Rangers throwing money around are gone.
"If a takeover happens it'll be to stabilise the club rather than coming in to start throwing cash about like we did before.
"That might give us an opportunity to go out and strengthen, which we probably need. Looking at it we could be doing with a couple in so in that sense it would be good if something happened to give the manager funds.
"You just need to look at us now - three or four injuries and we're down to the bare bones. It will be tough to go through the season continuing to grind out results like we're doing at the moment - and win the league."
While the speculation rages on, Miller claims he will continue to ignore the talk and just focus on his football.
"You just need to deal with it. I'm sure every player's phone rings at some point to ask if you fancy this or that," he added.
"There are a lot of panic buttons being pressed when it gets to the end of a transfer window. Right now there is nothing for me to worry about.
"I'm more concerned when the next game's going to be, to be honest. If something happens and I have a decision to make then that's what will happen."
