Former Rangers captain Lee McCulloch has given a telling description of what suspended Gers striker Kenny Miller was like in the club’s dressing room.
McCulloch, who played with Miller in two of the striker’s spells at Ibrox, described the 38-year-old as ‘opinionated’ and ‘a winner’, whilst speaking to STV Sport.
“Kenny, when I was in the dressing room with him, was opinionated and a winner. I think his CV has proven that,” he said.
Miller and team-mate Lee Wallace were suspended by the Ibrox board for their part in a post-match argument with manager Graeme Murty following the Gers’ 4-0 Scottish Cup semi-final loss to Celtic.
Whilst the Gers are still conducting an investigation into the matter, it does seem highly unlikely that the pair will ever play for the Light Blues again, which is a shame for Miller, who was a mainstay of the Ibrox club for years and despite injuries had still made 23 appearances this season.
Football Insider verdict
The quote from McCulloch is very telling, as it seems to describe what kind of a player Miller is, and gives a reason why he could have earned his suspension. The ‘opinionated’ part says a lot, as it is obviously his ability to say what he feels that lead to his exile from Ibrox in the first-place. Murty and the Gers board obviously didn’t agree with what the player had to said. As for the ‘winning’ part, that hasn’t happened a lot in recent years at Ibrox and it must eat at Miller, who had plenty of success in his second spell with the Gers, but this time it has been different as the Light Blues have struggled to readjust to life in the top flight.
