Rangers manager Walter Smith has revealed Sasa Papac is set to sign a new deal at Ibrox later this week.

Papac has been in talks with Gers officials for the last few months over a two-year extension to his contract.

The Bosnian is set to meet Rangers chief executive Martin Bain after Tuesday's reaaranged SPL clash with Dundee United and Smith is confident the deal will be concluded quickly.

"I would hope it would be finalised this week," Smith told the Daily Record.

"Sasa is going to meet Martin and hopefully it will be sorted out as he has been doing well.

"He came here as a centre-half but has adapted to his new role at left-back and shown he is a really good footballer. He deserves great credit."

Meanwhile, Kenny Miller has praised Kris Boyd as the pair strike up a partnership in attack.

The duo have shown signs of forming a real deadly double-act in recent weeks and Miller has been encouraged by their progress.

"The last four, five, six weeks it's been working well up front," said Miller.

Good blend

"On Saturday, Boydy got a hat-trick and I got a goal and set one up. It's easy to say that when things are going well, but I'm happy enough and I feel there's a good blend there between me and Boydy.

"The partnership is working well and at the end of the day it doesn't matter who gets the goals.

"I'd like to think there will be weeks when I get the goals and he might not get any. But it's not about who gets the goals, it's about winning matches."
