Report details how Rangers outcast performed in closed-doors friendly
By James Black
Rangers outcast Kenny Miller has made a goal-scoring return to action for the Gers’ first-team in Saturday’s closed-doors friendly with Morton which resulted in a 3-3 draw, according to a report.
The Daily Record claims the veteran striker was dropped for last week’s 4-1 win at Hamilton after reportedly leaking information from a team meeting to a Scottish newspaper.
Miller then travelled with the club’s Under-20’s side to face Brentford in their in latest fixture as part of the club’s ‘Academy Games’ programme.
The Gers were due to travel to Canada and face Benfica on Friday, however, that game was cancelled at short notice leaving Pedro Caixinha to find an alternative fixture to keep his players ticking over during the international break.
Miller was expected to be left at home for the trip to Canada but the cancellation seems to have won him a reprieve as he came off the bench to score in the 3-3 draw with Jim Duffy’s side earlier today.

Rangers return to competitive action of Friday night when they travel to Perth to face St. Johnstone in the Scottish Premiership and it’s unclear if Miller will be part of the squad for the trip up the A9.
The 37-year-old has played 250 times for the Gers over three spells with the club and it appeared as though his Ibrox career would be at an end after his bust-up with Caixinha but there could still be an opportunity for the former Scotland star to earn a reprieve.
