Kenny Miller will report to Rangers this morning to be told his Ibrox career is over. The veteran striker was involved in an angry bust-up with boss Graeme Murty following the 4-0 Scottish Cup semi-final defeat to Celtic on Sunday. Club captain Lee Wallace has also been suspended for his part in the Hampden row, pending an internal investigation.
Record Sport understands Miller is raging with Murty’s handling of the game and vented his fury in the dressing room afterwards. The explosive development comes after we exclusively revealed that Alfredo Morelos and Greg Docherty exchanged angry words in the tunnel after Rangers’ latest defeat to their city rivals. Miller’s wife took to social media after the hammering to have her say after the 38-year-old was left as an unused sub.

She tweeted: “Wow. Fact kenny is a big game old firm player but hey who am I to have an opinion. N btw he’s fitter than any1 I’ve ever met. Fitter faster stronger yessssss.” (sic) Under-fire boss Murty admitted after the game that there was “anger, emotion and disappointment” among the squad after their hopes of picking a first major trophy since 2011 were ended. Goals from Tom Rogic, Callum McGregor, Moussa Dembele and Olivier Ntcham capped the rout as Rangers had Ross McCrorie sent-off early in the second period. Midfielder Andy Halliday was hauled off by Murty after the Hoops’ second goal and he reacted angrily as he took his seat on the bench.

Miller is in his third stint at Ibrox after first arriving from Hibs in 2000. He headed down south to join Wolves a year later before returning to Rangers in 2008 following a spell at Derby County and a short stint at Celtic. Rangers sold him to Birmingham City in January 2011 but he was back in Govan three years later. His goals helped Rangers back into the Premiership but he found himself frozen out under Murty’s predecessor Pedro Caixinha in September last year. Wallace was signed from Hearts in 2011, remaining at Rangers as they were demoted to the Third Division the following year before being handed the armband by former boss Mark Warburton in 2015. He skippered the side back through the lower tiers but has been plagued by injuries since the tail end of last season. The 30-year-old previously expressed his desire to finish his career at Rangers. Miller and Wallace have made a combined 567 appearances for the club. Read More
