Rangers welcome back Kenny Miller to their squad for Saturday's Scottish Championship clash with Alloa at Ibrox.

The striker was ruled out with a groin strain as Mark Warburton's side dropped their first points of the season when they lost 2-1 to Hibernian at Easter Road last weekend.

Winger David Templeton and goalkeeper Cammy Bell both remain out with knee injuries.

Before last week's reverse Rangers had won their opening 11 matches of the campaign, including a 5-1 away victory over Alloa in August when Miller was on target twice following goals from James Tavernier, Martyn Waghorn and Jason Holt.

Hibs are now only five points behind Rangers, but defender Rob Kiernan insists they are not feeling the heat.

He said: "It's been a great reaction, the lads have dusted themselves down, we've trained well, had our meetings and our analysis and we're ready to go again.

"We were all disappointed last Sunday and the manager has done his stuff and given us bits and bobs that we can work on. The focus now is to just go again and start another run and that is what we're going to do.

"I don't really look behind me, I think it's happened and we still are a good team, still have good players and a great management.

"We don't feel under any extra pressure now, we'll just carry on doing our stuff, play the way we play and I'm sure the results will come again.

"We have nothing to prove on Saturday but we do have something to prove to our fans every week - we want to deliver performances and win football matches but in terms of what's happened, then it's happened.

"The reaction shows the standards of playing for this football club. None of us want to lose football matches but we haven't turned into a bad team overnight.

"It was one performance, we still played well and we had some good spells across the game - we have seen it and looked at it and now we want to put it right."
