'Making my night even better' - Rangers fans react to senior player injury v Hibernian
Rangers striker Kenny Miller was stretchered off only 12 minutes into the Gers’ Scottish Premiership 2-1 win against Hibernian at Easter Road on Wednesday – and fans didn’t seem to have a huge amount of sympathy for the 37-year-old.
Miller pulled up after chasing down Hibs midfielder Dylan McGeoch, minutes after the hosts took the lead through Lewis Stevenson.
The senior player was replaced by Daniel Candeias and looks set to face an extended spell on the sidelines after a nasty looking set-back.
Rangers fans didn’t seem too upset that Miller could be out for a while – with one saying it could be a “god send.”
Here are some of their comments on Twitter:
What’s making my night even better is knowing that Kenny Miller will be out for a few weeks injured, thanks for the memories big man but there’s gonna a space on the bench for you when you’re fit again

Miller has been a controversial figure at Ibrox this season after being banished from the first-team by now former Rangers boss Pedro Caixinha.

Miller was eventually recalled to the side after Caixinha’s sacking in October but has delivered a series of disappointing performances.
The veteran striker joined the Gers in 2014 for a third spell at Ibrox and has played a total of 296 for the club.
With an Old Firm clash at the end of the month, the former Scotland striker’s experience will be a huge loss to Graeme Murty’s side as they look to record their first league win over their bitter rivals in five years.
