Career of disgraced Rangers player must be one of most bizarre ever in Scottish football


With Kenny Miller suspended by Rangers – along with Lee Wallace – for a bust-up with Graeme Murty, it seems that his career in Scottish football might have finally come to an end, and what a bizarre career it has been.

The 38-year-old is one of the select band of players to have played for both Rangers and Celtic, and has had three spells overall with the Ibrox club.

His second spell at Ibrox has to go down as his most successful, as he returned to Scotland with a point to prove after being sold by Celtic to Derby.

He responded to this by scoring plenty of goals against the Parkhead side and helping the Gers to two league titles.

Financial problems forced the Gers to sell to Turkish side Bursaspor in January 2011, but such was his form that season he still ended up as top scorer in the Scottish Premiership.

His third spell with the Gers, after time in Canada and Cardiff, hasn’t been as successful to put it mildly, as it has ended with him disgraced and suspended, but he did still score goals on a regular basis for the Ibrox club, including 21 when they won promotion on 2015-16.

Who knows how history will look back on Miller, as he was certainly a footballing nomad, and you wouldn’t bet against him trying to resurrect his career somewhere next season.

But his best days were at Ibrox, and privately he must be disappointed that it has ended the way it did.
