Miller, 37, started and finished the match as the Gers secured a 1-1 draw against Brendan Rodgers' Hoops at Celtic Park, when Clint Hill scored late on to draw level following Stuart Armstrong's equaliser.

Celtic took the lead after 35 minutes with a brilliant strike from Stuart Armstrong rifling past Wesley Foderingham.

"Clint Hill said on the pitch to me afterwards that he got away with that".

The visitors continued to search for a victor and veteran Clint Hill bundled home the equaliser after Gordon parried away a shot from the edge of the box.

"It's a hard environment, but two outstanding saves from Craig Gordon or it could have been more".

"I've just said to the players that I'm incredibly proud of the way they've worked and the way they've accepted me", he said. I thought the players showed a degree of tenacity and grit that they have been questioned about and challenged about for a long time.

Rodgers believes his side should have been awarded a stoppage-time penalty as he watched Celtic drop points for only the second time in the league under his guidance. This experience will only make me better for that.

Hill survived a strong penalty shout from Leigh Griffiths but Rangers edged to within eight points of second-placed Aberdeen, who lie 25 points shy of Celtic.

He said: "Hello Rangers fans".

"But like I say, our run continues - we were focused to get the result, we didn't get the three points but we will take the point and move onto the next game".

Deserved more but we will take that.

"We want a winning mentality, winning team and you need to be here to support us".
