Kenny Miller hopes that success in the new season will ensure he wins over the Rangers supporters.
The striker has come in for criticism from Gers fans following his return to Ibrox.
He originally left Rangers for Wolves in 2001 before spending the 2006/07 campaign at Old Firm rivals Celtic.
Miller re-signed for the Gers from Derby County earlier this summer, but the deal has seen him come in for criticism from sections of the club's fanbase during their pre-season friendlies.
The 28-year-old was again jeered during his home debut against FBK Kaunas in midweek, but Miller is hopeful of earning their backing when the new term gets underway.
"I was prepared for the worst, to be honest," he said of Wednesday's UEFA Champions League qualifier.
"A lot of things have been said and I've seen and read the negative things, so I was pleasantly surprised that it wasn't that bad.
"I could totally handle the reception at the start and when I did come off, I was over the moon with the reception I got.
"Then again, some folk were saying that maybe they were cheering the fact that I was being taken off! But I'm an optimist, so I am taking it that they were cheering a decent performance.
"As long as we are being successful, I hope it will diminish but if things are not going too great it might remain.
"But we are looking to win every game and we will win a hell of a lot more than we will lose or draw, hopefully, so as the season goes on that might just phase out."
