Chaotic scenes, 30 eyewitnesses, player mutiny - new reported details emerge of Rangers bust-up
By Richard Parks
Rangers players are in mutiny at the punishments handed out to Kenny Miller and Lee Wallace as the fight begins to clear their names, according to a report.
The Daily Record claim there is “mounting unrest” from the rest of the Light Blues squad over the decision to suspend the senior pair following Sunday’s Scottish Cup capitulation against Celtic at Hampden Park.
It is said that there were “chaotic scenes” in the dressing room in the immediate aftermath of the 4-0 demolition derby and that Miller and Wallace both had their say in no uncertain terms as they expressed their disgust at the performance.
In scenes witnessed by 30 eyewitnesses, the Record report that Graeme Murty was not present for much of the heated post-mortem and that many of the squad are “baffled” by claims from club sources that the suspended duo overstepped the mark with venomous personal attacks on the manager.
Rangers players are now ready to give testimony that will help clear the names of Miller and Wallace during the internal disciplinary investigation.

Football Insider verdict:
If Rangers’ players are indeed keen and willing to back the standpoints of Miller and Wallace that they did not turn on Murty, and were actually expressing strong views to teammates, it would change the equation in what is a new twist to a fascinating tale. However, there is a good chance many will privately be backing the senior duo, but might not want to put their Rangers careers in jeopardy by going as far as formally doing so. 10 Downing Street certainly has nothing on the internal politics of Ibrox, as the meltdown from a sensational series of events continues.
