Rangers fans rage after senior duo named in starting XI v Ross County
By Harry Sykes
Kenny Miller and Niko Kranjcar have been named in the Rangers starting XI for Sunday’s league clash at Ross County – and fans took to Twitter to express their criticism.
Miller was named in the line-up by manager Pedro Caixinha for the fourth consecutive Scottish Premiership fixture of the new campaign.
Kranjcar was handed his first league start after getting the nod to replace the injured Josh Windass, most likely on the left wing.

But supporters were unimpressed at the selections of two over-30s in the same XI as they raged at the lack of mobility in the attacking part of the Rangers team.
Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Said it before.If guys like Miller and Kranjcar are regular starters it’ll be another hit and miss season similar to last year.

Kranjcar and Miller starting ? Mobility is overrated.

What rangers have been lacking for the last few seasons is real pace and playing kranjcar and miller will slow us down big time

I know Miller is legend but slows the team down and Kranjcar is also too slow for this type of game

Miller was Rangers’ top scorer last season but is 37, while Kranjcar, who is rebuilding his fitness after a serious knee injury wrecked his debut Ibrox campaign, is 33.
Rangers are looking to get back to winning ways after successive home league fixtures yielded a tempestuous 3-2 defeat to Hibernian and a goalless draw against Hearts.
