The Rangers fans in the Transfer Tavern have been reacting to the news that their club’s hierarchy has suspended both Kenny Miller and Lee Wallace after the pair reportedly had a furious row with manager Graeme Murty following the 4-0 Scottish Cup semi-final defeat to Celtic. According to Record Sport Kenny Miller is to have his Ibrox career ended over the incident whilst club-captain Lee Wallace is suspended.
Rangers can confirm two players, Lee Wallace and Kenny Miller, have this morning been suspended pending investigation into a team related incident.
The club will make no further comment until this investigation has been completed.

The news coming out of the club though is that both players will be suspended as the club undergoes an internal investigation. Neither of the pair played any part in the game as Miller was an unused sub and Wallace missed out on a place in the squad altogether having missed most of the season after needing an operation on a groin injury. The duo supposedly ripped into manager Murty for his handling of the club’s defeat to Celtic at Hampden Park as the Gers handed rolled over for Brendan Rodgers’ side.
Celtic’s win puts them in the driving seat as they’re now only a few weeks away from winning back-to-back Scottish trebles having picked up all of last season’s domestic honours as well as this year’s Scottish League Cup, with just a few league games and a Scottish Cup final against Motherwell standing in their way. The way they’re going, Rangers look to be slipping to another disappointment with nothing left to play for other than battling Aberdeen for 2nd place in the league as the season goes down as one to forget.
You can read our local Bluenoses’ verdict on Wallace and Miller’s suspensions here:
We followed you down the the 3rd division and back again.
We followed regardless of results.
We followed for the love and loyalty we have for OUR club.
Unless you do what is best and get a fully qualified manager in asap, you will lose us all. pic.twitter.com/2ydgVLw1NI

Lee Wallace stood by us in our darkest hour and as of today we stand by him. We deserve better

Suspend the Captain and Vice Captain because they think losing 4 nil to your biggest rivals in a semi final is unacceptable! Lee Wallace stood by us, i stand by him! #WeDeserveBetter
Can’t believe your letting a caretaker manager suspend 2 players who one is our club captain and one is one of the most experienced in the squad

Is that it? The fans have been kept in the dark for almost 48hrs & now you’ll feeding us news that the rags have already spread. No plans to change the management set-up that is currently looking unlikely to secure us 2nd spot? We deserve better.
