Rangers striker Kenny Miller believes they will end the season with a flourish as they target a dream double.
The Ibrox side are on a five-game winning streak and they have closed the gap on Scottish Premier League leaders Celtic to just one point.
Miller insists Gers are strong enough to win each of their final five SPL games to clinch the league crown before their Scottish Cup showdown against Falkirk.
Rangers host third-placed Hearts on Saturday knowing that a sixth consecutive win could take them to the top of the table.
This would set up a mouth-watering top-of-the-table clash with their Old Firm rivals on 9th May.
Miller told the Daily Record: "We have more than enough quality in our squad.
"The boys have won five games in a row for only the second time this season and that's probably why we're not already six or seven points clear.
"Now we want to make it 11 to clinch the double."
Miller's pledge holds striking similarities to the guarantee made by Celtic midfielder Aiden McGeady last year when he promised winning the final seven games.
Miller, a former Celtic player before his move to Derby in 2007, has scored nine goals this year. Now he hopes to fire Rangers to the league crown.
"I felt Celtic would drop points, even when they went seven in front, because they had put together a 12-game winning run and it was impossible to keep that going.
"We had to hang on to their coat tails and now if we win the last five games we'll win the league.
"We're more than good enough to win the last five in the SPL."
