Rangers fans on Twitter have blasted manager Pedro Caixinha’s decision to start veteran forward Kenny Miller against Dunfermline on Wednesday evening.
The Gers lined-up against their Scottish Championship opposition at Ibrox having made four changes, including the omission of striker summer signing Eduardo Herrera from the matchday squad.
However, 37-year-old Miller was kept in the team despite playing 77 minutes of the Glasgow giants 2-1 Premiership victory over Motherwell on Sunday afternoon.
Many Rangers fans on social media felt that it was a bad decision to include the forward in their line-up once more and some were calling for the club to hand chances to youngsters such as Ryan Hardie and Joe Dodoo.
Here are a selection of their messages on Twitter:
Should start Hardie instead of Miller

Would be nice to see Morelos get off the mark tonight. I don't see the reason in Miller starting every fixture but there you go. #RFC
