Rangers have addressed one aspect of the situation involving Kenny Miller and Lee Wallace, and they will have to quickly address the other before the club spirals out of control.
The Gers released a statement a short time ago on their official Twitter page announcing that both Miller and Wallace had been suspended for a ‘team related incident’ – believed to be a bust-up with Graeme Murty after the Scottish Cup loss to Celtic.
However, the statement goes on to claim that the Gers won’t make any more comments on the matter until the ‘investigation has been completed’.
Rangers can confirm two players, Lee Wallace and Kenny Miller, have this morning been suspended pending investigation into a team related incident.
The club will make no further comment until this investigation has been completed.

However, that is where the problem lies. The Gers will need to get the investigation concluded and release it’s findings as soon as possible, ideally before the Light Blues play again, against Hearts at Ibrox on Sunday.
There can’t be a cloud hanging over a season which is looking like it is going to fall apart at any time, and before results on the pitch deteriorate even further there must be no more off-pitch distractions.
Despite the loss in the Scottish Cup to Celtic, the Gers do still have something to play for, as they are locked in a battle for second place in the Scottish Premiership table with Aberdeen and Hibernian.
To give themselves the best chance of achieving this goal, the investigation must be concluded as quickly as possible.
