'Cutting their own throat' - Ally McCoist weighs in on Rangers spat
By James Black
Former Rangers striker Ally McCoist believes people are “cutting their own throat” in the fall-out between Kenny Miller and Pedro Caixinha.
Miller has been left out of Caixinha’s squad for Rangers’ last two games after reportedly leaking the contents of a team meeting in the wake of the 2-0 Old Firm defeat to Celtic last month.
Caixinha has refused to answer questions on the striker’s future on Friday while Miller’s agent launched an attack on the club’s handling of the matter via Instagram earlier this week.
It’s unlikely Miller will be involved on Sunday when the Gers make the short trip to Hampden to face Motherwell in the Scottish League Cup semi-final and McCoist believes the Light Blues aren’t doing themselves any favours allowing the saga to drag on.

“He has insinuated there is a mole and that things have been leaked.
“He has not said it is Kenny Miller; but it has been noticeable that Kenny hasn’t been in the last couple of squads.
“There has been a meeting with Kenny and the manager.
“And indeed I did notice that Kenny’s agent has very recently had a serious go at the management and the way the management has handled the situation.
“It’s not good, it’s not good. As if Rangers don’t have trouble to seek at the moment, people seem to be cutting their own throat with some of the stuff.”
McCoist had more than his fair share of run-ins with Rangers managers over an Ibrox career which saw him become the club’s all-time record goalscorer.
Miller is in his third spell with the Ibrox club and has scored 100 times in 250 appearances.
The veteran striker had been a mainstay in Caixinha’s side until he was dropped in the aftermath of last month’s Old Firm clash.
The 37-year-old travelled with the Under-20 squad to face Brentford in London before re-joining the first-team squad over the international break.
