KENNY MILLER watched as PSV Eindhoven dominated possession for long stretches against Rangers.
But they couldn’t do enough to turn that into an advantage for Holland – because some players aren’t GOOD ENOUGH.
The former Rangers hero believes the Dutch side will try to do the same in the second leg – tied 2-2 in a repeat of their head-to-head meeting a year ago.
But they don’t have the substance to match their playstyle.
Miller saw enough weaknesses for Michael Beale in the Ibrox crowdmove on and find ways for the Rangers to exploit.
A goal just before half-time gave Abdallah Sima the chance to put Rangers ahead and although they equalised, a quick attack from substitute Rabbi Matondo restored Rangers’ lead before a Luuk de Jong header sealed it again was nullified.
But those defensive skills will give Rangers a chance to make it back into the group stage, Miller believes.
Talking about talkSPORTwith Alan and Ally McCoist said: “It’s quite a good draw. Watching it makes you nervous because PSV have so much possession and do most of the attacking.”
“But they’re not that great in the back.
“I don’t think PSV are brilliant in defence. They try to assert themselves, but they also take a lot of risks.”
