'It is frustrating' - Kenny Miller opens up on Hampden row that ended his Rangers career
Former Rangers striker Kenny Miller has admitted that it is “frustrating” reading reports of the incident that brought his Ibrox career to an end – and insists there was no bust-up with manager Graeme Murty.
Miller was suspended by the Gers, along with club captain Lee Wallace, after a row at Hampden in the wake of the Scottish Cup semi-final thrashing by Celtic – with both players later being fined by the Gers.
Both players are appealing the fine levied by the Gers and Miller revealed that he has “just got to ride it out” as they wait for a resolution, admitting it has been “tough” over the last few months.
“It has been tough,” Miller said, as quoted by Sky Sports.
“There’s a lot of things that have been said – alleged bust-ups and things like that.
“What I can say is that at no point did I have any bust-up with the manager after the game. When you keep reading that it is frustrating.

“There is a process ongoing at the moment and I’ve just got to ride it out for the next weeks, months, however long it is going to take for this to come to an end.”
Football Insider verdict:
It’s maybe a rather simplistic view but surely if there was no bust-up at Hampden then there would have been no suspensions and no fines? Regardless of the way it ended for Miller, it had looked pretty certain for a while that he was on the way out at Ibrox when his contract ended this summer. The veteran striker isn’t good enough to be a part of the Gers side moving forward under Steven Gerrard. The ongoing process with his fine could take months to come to a conclusion and will likely end up with both players being subject to a non-disclosure agreement at the end of it all. Miller won’t struggle to get a new club this summer but until the issue with Rangers is resolved there will be some question marks over whether the veteran is a gamble or not. Managers won’t want to bring in a player with a track-record for being a disruptive influence over the last few years.
