'Cannot speak highly enough' - Wallace raves about Rangers outcast
By James Black
Rangers captain Lee Wallace has raved about the positive infuence Kenny Miller has on the squad and is hopeful that can be a resolution reached between him and Pedro Caixinha after a falling out.
Miller has been bombed out of Caixinha’s senior squad after reportedly leaking information from a team meeting to a newspaper following the Gers’ 2-0 loss to Celtic last month.
The 37-year-old striker has missed both of Rangers’ last two games and was part of the Under-20 squad whp travelled to London to face Brentford B before the international break.
Wallace has been a team-mate of Miller’s for club and country and couldn’t praise the striker’s influence enough.
“Speaking of him as my friend and team-mate, I cannot speak highly enough of him,” Wallace said about the Gers outcast on Sky Sports, as quoted by the Daily Record website.

“What he’s done for my career and been able to learn from a top professional and a real Rangers man.
“I learn from him every day and I think and hope that any situation can get resolved as quickly as possible.”
Miller isn’t likely to be involved on Sunday when Rangers take on Motherwell in the semi-final of the Scottish League Cup at Hampden Park.
The veteran is out of contract at the end of the season and it doesn’t look like he will be offered an extended deal at Ibrox after his bust-up with Caixinha.
Miller’s agent Dave Baldwin stoked the flames of the fire with a series of social media posts, savaging the Gers for their handling of the situation.
The former Celtic striker is in his third spell at Ibrox and has scored 100 times in 250 appearances for the Gers.
Miller is one of only a handful of Caixinha’s squad with experience of playing at Hampden but it’s not likely to count for much when Caixinha makes his team selection for Sunday’s game.
The winner at Hampden will face Celtic or Hibs at the end of November in the final.
