'Beyond a joke' - Rangers fans rage as forward starts v Dundee
By James Black
Pedro Caixinha has named an unchanged side for Rangers’ Scottish Premiership clash with Dundee at Ibrox on Saturday and fans aren’t too happy with some of the Portuguese managers’ selections – with one labelling Kenny Miller’s continued place in the side as being “beyond a joke.”
The Light Blues confirmed the team news on their official Twitter account prior to kick-off.

Veteran forward Miller hasn’t impressed fans this season and many Bluenoses would like to see Mexican summer signing Eduardo Herrera replace the 37-year-old alongside Alfredo Morelos in the Gers front-line.
Rangers saw off Ross County 3-1 on their last outing with Morelos grabbing a double before Herrera scored a last-minute goal – his first since moving to Ibrox from Mexican side UNAM Pumas.
With some of Caixinha’s summer signings also missing from the squad list, some fans are less than impressed with the Gers’ starting XI.

The Glasgow giants have struggled at home in the league so far this season and have yet to record their first league win at Ibrox in 2017/18.
With 11th-placed Dundee the visitors on Saturday, it’s a must-win for Caixinha’s side if they are to have any hope of pushing Celtic in the race for the Scottish Premiership title.
The 54-time league winners currently sit six points behind leaders Celtic having played a game less than their bitter rivals with the first Old Firm fixture of the season rapidly approaching.
Saturday’s Ibrox fixture could see recent loan signing Aaron Nemane make his Rangers debut with the young winger named among the substitutes after his move from Man City.
