Rangers suspended club captain Lee Wallace and Kenny Miller after a bust-up with manager Graeme Murty in the wake of the 4-0 Scottish Cup semi-final humiliation against Celtic at Hampden – but it isn’t the first time Rangers players have been involved in an altercation over the years.

On and off the field, there have been a number of explosive showdowns at Ibrox between players, coaches, managers, directors and even fans and Miller and Wallace’s fall out with Murty adds to a lengthy list.

With expectations always sky-high at Rangers, it is understandable that sometimes tempers boil over and harsh words said as highly-motivated professionals aim to be the best.

That said, sometimes things can go a bit too far and have catastrophic consequences that go far beyond those involved in any argument and change the club dramatically.

The Gers have had explosive personalities at Ibrox for as long as the club have played at Ibrox and some of those have been involved in some of the biggest rows to hit the club.

From Bill Struth falling out with the Rangers board to Graeme Souness sending Terry Butcher to Coventry or Joey Barton and Mark Warburton’s post-Old Firm argument, there is always something bubbling just below the surface at Ibrox.

Here, Football Insider look at the five biggest bust-ups at Rangers in recent years.
