Rangers fans in the Transfer Tavern were left shocked today after Kenny Miller and Lee Wallace were told that their Gers careers were over following their bust-up with manager Graeme Murty on Sunday.
Miller and Wallace were involved in a heated argument with their manager following their 4-0 defeat to Celtic in the Scottish Cup semi-final on Sunday. The soon to be axed duo are said to be shocked by the accusations and are desperate to clear their names before the end of the season so their reputations aren’t tarnished.
The Ibrox outfit are currently in second place in the Scottish Premier League standings 12 points behind Brendan Rodgers side were summoned to the home of Rangers by managing director Stewart Robertson and according to The Sun the meeting lasted two-minutes and signalled an end to the duos’ careers.
Both players have been reportedly suspended and told to stay away from the club’s training facilities, with Miller seemingly playing his last game for the club he has played nearly 300 games for. Whilst club captain Wallace’s suspension means his season is over and he will most likely be sold or moved on in the summer.
Miller has claimed that boss Murty had left the changing room before anyone potential bust-up could have occurred, with both players being unaware of what they had been accused of by the club. The incident is said to have left the remainder of the squad stunned as the team prepare for their final five games of this season.
As you can imagine, our local Light Blues just want an end to this ugly season and wish to put it all behind them.
A total mess, though at least the club are taking a strong stance. Whether you agree with their decision or not is up for debate, though they’ve set their stool out. In previous years, Rangers would have let the problems in the dressing room linger for a while, so at least it’s some sort of progress.
