Rangers

Suspended Rangers duo Lee Wallace and Kenny Miller are demanding an explanation into their suspension by the Ibrox giants as they shockingly remain in the dark over the reasons for their exclusion, according to a report.

Wallace and Miller was formally suspended by the Gers in the wake of the 4-0 Scottish Cup Hampden thrashing by Old Firm rivals Celtic but have yet to be given reason why they have been told to stay away and, according to the Daily Record, has led to their advisors contacting the club to demand an explanation from the Ibrox hierarchy

Neither player is expected to feature for the Gers again with Miller’s contract ending in the summer and Wallace having a further 12 months on his deal.

The Daily Record also claim that the contact between the club and players’ union PFA Scotland has been “dismissive” and “minimal.”

The row is the latest to engulf the Gers recently and looks set to rumble on over the coming weeks as the club undertake a formal investigation into a bust-up between the pair and manager Graeme Murty in the Hampden dressing room.

The whole sorry episode brings back memories of Joey Barton’s slow departure from Ibrox in similar circumstances. The Gers need to get it dealt with and make a decision on the next steps with the next few weeks absolutely vital for the club. It looks almost certain both players’ Rangers career is over so if the Gers are looking to dismiss Wallace then this could linger on for a while as it goes through the formal disciplinary process and handled appropriately. It’ll likely never come out what happened between the players and Murty but it needs to be put to bed sooner rather than later.
