Murty gives key update on injured Rangers senior player after significant blow
Rangers manager Graeme Murty has confirmed Kenny Miller has returned to full training after recovering from a hamstring tear suffered during the Gers’ win over Hibs in December.
The veteran striker limped out of the Easter Road clash on December 13th and missed the Gers trip to Florida over the winter break but looks set for a return to the first-team in the next few weeks.
The 38-year-old was expected to face a “significant” spell on the sidelines but has made a remarkable recovery to boost Murty’s options ahead of the second-half of the Scottish Premiership season.
Murty revealed that Wednesday’s clash with Aberdeen at Ibrox would come “too soon” for Miller to feature as he offered a key update on the senior player’s fitness.
“Kenny Miller joined in full training this morning but tomorrow’s game will come too soon for him,” Murty said, as quoted by the club’s official Twitter account.

Miller has made 18 appearances so far this season, scoring four and creating four assists, but looked to be on the way out of Ibrox earlier in the campaign after a row with then-manager Pedro Caixinha.
The veteran striker found himself banished to the club’s Under-20’s side after details of a team meeting ended up in a newspaper.
After Caixinha’s sacking in October, Miller was restored to the first-team squad and was a regular under Graeme Murty before his injury.
The 38-year-old is in his third stint with the Ibrox giants and is out of contract at the end of the season.
