'Written in the script' - Colin Cameron makes claim about Rangers player display v Hearts
By James Black
Former Hearts and Scotland midfielder Colin Cameron insists Pedro Caixinha picked the wrong Rangers player to fall out with in Kenny Miller after a rift emerged between the two last month.
Caixinha was widely reported to have had a huge bust-up with striker Miller over claims the veteran striker had been leaking information to the media in the wake of the 2-0 Old Firm defeat to Celtic earlier this season.
Miller saw himself banished to the club’s Under-20’s and missed four first-team games before making his comeback in the 3-1 win over Hearts at Murrayfield on Saturday.
The 37-year-old scored twice and set up Josh Windass for the Gers’ third goal as he returned to the starting XI under interim boss Graeme Murty.
Cameron believes Caixinha picked the wrong player to have a falling out with and has claimed that it was never a surprise to see Miller return in the way he did at Murrayfield last weekend.

“I’ve known Kenny a long time and even at Wolves he would bite back if he felt you were in the wrong and he always stood his ground,” Cameron said, as quoted by the Scottish Sun website.
“But he’s shown his character to come back after all he’s been put through recently to score two goals and set up another against Hearts.
“He hit the ground running again and it was written in the script for him to come back and be the Rangers hero.
“I imagine Craig Levein was cursing his luck when he saw Kenny’s name on the Rangers teamsheet on Saturday because he’d know the threat he’d pose to Hearts.
“I can imagine what has happened at Rangers with Pedro Caixinha.”
Rangers sacked Caixinha last week and are now looking for their seventeenth permanent manager.
