Kenny Miller’s agent Dave Baldwin has suggested that the Light Blues would have had a better end to the season if they had appointed Miller rather than Graeme Murty as manager – and is exactly the reason Miller fell out with a succession of managers at Ibrox.
The veteran striker’s agent made the comments, as quoted by the Scottish Sun, after Miller’s Ibrox contract came to an end.
Miller, along with club captain Lee Wallace, was suspended following a bust-up in the wake of the Scottish Cup semi-final thrashing by Celtic – the second time he was subject to disciplinary action over the course of the season.
Former boss Pedro Caixinha also banished the striker after he reportedly leaked details of a team meeting to a journalist.
It is no secret that Miller remains in dispute with the Gers after he was fined for his part in the Hampden row but Baldwin’s comments simply come across as petty and childish.
Miller isn’t shy about using others to speak on his behalf – Baldwin did exactly that for him when Miller was sent away by Caixinha – so it won’t come as a surprise if these comments have originally come from the striker.
Murty and Caixinha aren’t the only two bosses Miller has fallen foul of at Ibrox with a fall-out with Dick Advocaat long suspected as a big reason in his departure from Ibrox in 2001.
Miller might just be the innocent party in all of the bust-ups he’s been involved in over the years with managers – but comments from Baldwin’s do no favours to Miller and leave a bad taste for fans.
